Malta’s capital Valetta is a remarkable place, with every street leading to the sea. The walled fortress city has beautiful 16th and 17th century townhouses with traditional Maltese balconies. Valletta’s St John’s Co-Cathedral is Malta’s most impressive church, with a huge painting of John the Baptist by Caravaggio. Malta and Gozo have Europe’s best warm diving seas with underwater architecture and WWII shipwrecks. Malta’s third island is beautiful Comino, with its worldly Blue Lagoon. The blue is so intense it’s as if you’ve stepped into a postcard.
Mdina and Rabat are definatley worth visiting. The Arabic walled city of Mdina lies on a hilltop and is a world apart from modern Malta. With its peaceful and shady streets its nicknamed the Silent City. Mdina adjoins Rabat, a lovely town withs some fascinating sights and with one of Malta’s best restaurant scenes.
