Despite of its small size, Valetta contains many historical buildings you may visit; the city’s fortifications consisting of bastions, curtains and cavaliers, its numerous churches, its baroque palaces and beautiful gardens are of great beauty and historical value. For this reason, UNESCO named Valletta a Wold Heritage Site, describing it as “one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world”. But the city has also good examples of contemporary architecture. The City Gate, Parliament Building and Opera House designed but the renowned italian arquitect Renzo piano have given the city a new and modern look. In addition, thanks to Valletta’s status as European Capital of Culture for 2018, the city has opened new museums, restored old fortresses and many old 16th-century mansions have been converted into hotels and bars.
Valletta's outskirts are worth a visit: you may take the beautiful ferry trip to the Three Cities or visit the astounding prehistoric Hal Saflieni Hypogeum. If you have more time and decide to rent a car, you may visit any of the popular seaside resorts in the island and even go to the neighbouring and rural island of Gozo by ferry.
