Do and see
There are various places of interest that you can visit in Malta, and the good thing is that all places are easily reached by public transport via Valletta. There are also plenty of different events around the island, especially during the summer months. One of the most spectacular ones is the Malta Fireworks Festival in Valletta in the end of April every year. For three days different countries and firework suppliers compete in making the best firework-show. Don't be sad if you miss the Firework Festival. Almost every weekend, the different villages hosts religious Festas. During a whole week, they celebrate their saint with church bells, processions, confetti and in the weekend they end the folk festival with an outstanding firework-show.
Valletta - The Capital of Malta
Valletta, the capital of Malta, was built by the Knights of St John in the 16th-century. It has been listed as a UNESCO world heritage site due to the various monumental buildings. It is a baroque city which has often been described as an open-air museum due to the amount of historic buildings concentrated in the area such as St John’s Co-Cathedral and the Grand Harbour, all built by the Knights as well as over 25 churches all concentrated in an area of 900m x 630m.
Mdina
Mdina, the old capital of Malta, is a typical medieval town situated on one of the highest hills of the island. The “Silent City,” as it is known, commands a magnificent view of the island. It is one of the few remaining Renaissance fortified cities in Europe.
Wied Iz- Zurrieq
Here one can have a swim or visit the Blue Grotto and the surrounding coastline by a trip on the “daghjsa,” a traditional Maltese fishing boat. The Blue Grotto is famous for the clarity of the water and the brilliant colours around the rocks and in the caves.
The Three Cities of Cottonera
Across the Grand Harbour, to the south of Valletta, are the historic fortified towns of Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea, commonly referred to as the three cities of Cottonera. If you only have time for one of them, Vittoriosa is the one most worth a visit. Here you find Fort St Angelo, the Inquisitor's Palace and the Vittoriosa Waterfront was refurbished in the early 2000's to once again reach up to its former glory.
Marsaxlokk
This is the main fishing village in Malta but if you visit the town any other day than a Sunday morning it might be hard to see. That is when the large and famous fish market is held on the dock. It's a true spectacle and something you shouldn't miss. If you feel like shopping something else than fish you find various articles such as souvenirs and handicrafts too. Enjoy a delicious seafood lunch at one of the picturesque restaurants when you are satisfied with your purchases.
Megalithic Temples
The remains of numerous temples erected in the fourth and third millennium B.C. are unique in the world. Stone idols, animal representations carved in relief, stone tablets, altars and screens decorated with spirals and other patterns enhance the attraction of these magnificent sanctuaries. You find the remnants on various locations around the islands. Some of the places worth a visit are Hagar Qim in Qrendi. Tarxien Temples in Tarxien and Ggantija in Gozo.
Diving
Malta is famous for its clear blue water and the perfect conditions for diving. Plenty of reefs, caves and wreck make it an unforgettable experience. Take the chance to go on a boat cruise to one of the many fenced ponds with giant Tunas. To swim among these 2-meters and 500 kg big fish are fascinating. For the beginner or the person who never even have tried to dive there is big array of different schools to choose from.
Gozo
The sister island, Gozo, is well worth a visit on its own. Hire a car or book one of the many day trips with jeep safari that is offered at the different tour operators. After disembarking the ferry you will directly notice the difference between the islands. Gozo has a more tranquil atmosphere and is lusher with its many agriculture farms. While you are here don't miss the Citadel in Victoria, the Saltpans, the Inland Sea and the Azure Window, one of the most famous landmarks of Malta.
