Malta's capital city, Valletta preserves most of its medieval architecture, built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Knights Hospitaller, once a powerful military order.
Change things up with these side-trips from Valletta: Malta National Aquarium (in Qawra) and Mellieha (Popeye Village Malta, Mellieha Beach, & more). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. John's Co-Cathedral, explore the ancient world of Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, take in the history at Lascaris War Rooms, and take in nature's colorful creations at Upper Barrakka Gardens.
