Before you visit anything els, go to "The Malta Experience". The Malta-film will give you an overall idea, what to see or do, in 18 different languages !

Valletta living history gives more interesting information in an narrative... More

We come to Malta every year or so and a place that we always get to is the capital of Malta, Valletta. This place is full of history and it is not possible to describe what there is to see in a few lines. A visit to this beautiful city is a must. The history is incredible !

It gave a potted overview of the history of Malta without being long winded and boring. Good value for money. Lots of steps down but I think there is a lift
