Despite living in different parts of the world, my best friend and I still manage to meet up for a girls' trip every other year. This year, we'd love to meet up in Malta for about 4 days in early June and would really appreciate advice on where we should base ourselves.
We love a bit of sightseeing (architecture, culture), window shopping, people-watching, nice outdoor restaurants for a spot of dinner and a glass of wine at night and a pool or beach for catching up on a bit of sunshine.
I imagine either Valletta itself or Sliema might make good urban bases for us (we are not planning to hire a car so will be dependent on public transport)? I also used to have a pen-pal in Mellieha years ago who sent me the most amazing pictures of the town so I wonder if that would be another option? Any other possibilities?
Any advice would be most appreciated!
