Explore Valletta

Valletta, Malta's capital, was built by the Knights of St John after the repelled invasion of the Turks in the Great Siege of 1565. Walk through history with much of the city unchanged in the past 400+ years.
3

Tour of the Three Cities.

The Three cities consist of Birgu, Senglea and Cospicua. Birgu predates the Knights and maintains some of the old world charm from the Middle Ages. Senglea and Cospicua, much like Valletta, were built and re-inforced by the Knights in anticipation for another raid by Dragut and his Turkish army, which never Materialised.
4

Sliema - The Modern City

Sliema is Malta's most cosmopolitan city. Constantly under development and always reacher higher, Sliema has the feel of the hustle and bustle of the major cities across the world, yet within one can still find remnants of it's humble past as a small fishing and recreational village.
5

Malta's old Capital Mdina

Before the arrival of the Knights of St John and the change of Capital initially to Birgu and then Valletta, Mdina was Malta's Capital City. Much like Valletta and Birgu, Mdina is a fortified city built on a peak with commanding views of the Maltese islands. It was founded by the Phoenicians, taken over by the Roman Empire, Conquered by the Byzantines and finally Renamed by the Arabs before being used a secondary command post by the Knights. It is now known as the Silent City as only residents, who are few, are allowed to drive in the city, which has left its cobbled stone roads much in tact.
