Valletta, Malta Travel Guide

Last Updated: Dec 2023

It feels like the sun is always shining in Valletta, and perhaps this is why it has been a popular holiday destination for many years. There is plenty to see and do and the small size of Malta means that all the other attractions and beaches that this tiny country has to offer are just a stones throw away. Valletta is only a small city and it is very easy (and enjoyable) to get around on foot. If you do want to travel further afield Malta is only a small country and Valletta is the transport hub so it is very easy to get around and see everything with little hassle.
