The City of Valletta, set to be the European Capital of Culture in 2018 – prove Malta’s got much more to offer than losing in soccer and a few points they always award at the Eurovision contest.

Great palaces, new architecture, and lovely places to eat – not to mention its UNESCO World Heritage

The island has beaches and opportunities still feels quite undiscovered.

Once you biking here you’ll see the landscape is stunning.

To really get away from it all, get one of the beautiful sea views.

The glowing limestone walls of Valletta had a facelift: the city gate area has been remodelled by The Shard architect Renzo Piano. A new gateway and parliament building have risen from post-war neglect, along with a modern open-air theatre constructed within the atmospheric ruins of the neo-classical Royal Opera House.

Centuries-old interiors of the city’s palazzi are being transformed into design hotels.
The Palazzo Prince d’Orange.

Easy to have a dinner at Palazzo Parisio in Naxxar or a night cap drink at the Harbour café.

Give it a try.
