As 2016 gets closer to its end, I keep in my mind the summer memories from Malta. Valletta is the capital city of Malta and was officially recognized as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980. It is for sure a destination that must be on your list.
A great way to get to Valletta is to take the ferry from Sliema. They leave every 15 minutes and the single ticket is 1,50 euro, return 2,80 euro.
I was in Valletta twice during my trip in Malta this summer and the main reason for that was the fact we didn’t get to visit Saint John’s Co-Cathedral the first time because of a private ceremony taking place there. So, my advice to you is to check their schedule before you arrive there.
My favourite places in Valletta
If you are looking for a great place to take a taste of the maltese cuisine Cafe Cordina it’s your place. The traditional pastizzi and excellent food are found there.
Saint John’s Co-Cathedral it’s the jewel of Valletta and you should visit if you want to be impressed by the history of Malta.
Upper Barrakka Gardens gives you spectacular views over the Grand Harbour and the three cities. If you arrive before 12.00 you will find a good sight of the saluting battery.
Have a wonderful merry Christmas or holidays! Hope you will all enjoy your time with friends and family!
