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 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 the over 25 churches all concentrated in an area of 900m x 630m. The city is officially recognised as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
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 fortified Renaissance 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 is the main fishing village of Malta, known for its famous fish market held on the docks every Sunday morning. It's a true spectacle and something you shouldn't miss. It isn't just fish that's on sale here - souvenirs and handicrafts are up for grabs at decent prices too. There are, naturally, a multitude of seafood restaurants in the vicinity.
Megalithic Temples
The remains of temples erected in the fourth and third millennium B.C. are a unique sighting. 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. Some of the places worth a visit are Hagar Qim in Qrendi, Tarxien Temples in Tarxien and Ggantija in Gozo.
The shore here is rather rocky, which has not barred the resorts’ appeal in the least. The flat rocks provide plenty of spots for sunbathing and there are access points for swimmers. The water is clear, deep, and safe for bathing. Located in the north of Malta island.
Malta is famous for its clear blue water and the perfect conditions for diving. Plenty of reefs, caves and remains of old shipwrecks make it an unforgettable experience. Make use of the chance to go on a boat cruise to one of the many fenced ponds with giant tuna. Swimming among these 2-meter long and 500-kg heavy fish is absolutely fascinating.
