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.
Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Blue Grotto (Il-Hnejja). Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Malta Postal Museum and Ghajn Tuffieha Bay. When in Valletta, make a side trip to see Mellieha Beach in Mellieha, approximately 44 minutes away. There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of War HQ Tunnel, learn about all things military at Fort St Elmo - National War Museum, browse the exhibits of Lascaris War Rooms, and delve into the distant past at Hagar Qim Temples.
