Valleta: a top city break in Europe
According to “The Guardian”, Valletta is among one of the top places to visit for a vacation in Europe. Well-known for its hot summers throughout the whole year and a popular destination to do business in, Valletta once again has proven to be a leading centre for financial services.
The history of Valletta, Malta
Valletta, Malta is a city break with a wealth of cultural heritage and great sights to enjoy. The island of Malta was built by the Knights of St John in the 16th century, but the history does not end here. The Maltese archipelago consists of three islands with the island of Malta as the biggest. The largest island of Malta is popular for its cultural, commercial and administrative activity. Here, one can discover breath-taking scenery and stunning architecture. Wherever you go, the sights provide a spectacular backdrop. Malta has been described as one big open-air museum since there is so much history which dates back 7,500 years ago. What stands out is that so much of the past is visible today and can still be experienced by visiting Valletta.
According to the “TheGuardian”: “Malta’s oldest fort, Fort St Angelo, and the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum – an incredible burial complex cut into rock – are some of the unmissable sights, but the city isn’t without contemporary touches, such as Renzo Piano’s city gate, completed two years ago; and in 2018 Valletta will celebrate the title of City of Culture. Along the narrow, bustling, Strait Street you’ll find bars and live music, elsewhere restaurants, including the unpretentious Da’ Pippo Trattoria (+356 2124 8029), serve delicious Italian cooking, while chic bistro Guze – in a 16th-century building – specialises in local cooking, with rabbit and pork dishes, alongside staples such as pasta and risotto.”
So, why visit Valletta?
