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.

Dinner In The Sky Malta

Dinner In The Sky is a once-in-lifetime kind of a experience, an evening of dining on a suspended construction floating above the Maltese capital. This one is not for the faint of heart, but absolutely safe - the set up is sturdy, and guests are required to buckle up prior to "departure."

Hal Ferh Golden Bay, Valetta
Medina Restaurant

Set in one of the old Mdina's windy alleys, the Medina Restaurant brings guests a selection of local Maltese (with some French and Italian) dishes in an enchanting, romantic setting. Service is above par, and seating is offered in an airy, majestic outdoor space.
