Valletta

This gorgeous city was built after the Great Siege of 1565. And named after the Grand Master: Jean Parisot de la Valette. Firstly, you visit the Barrakka Gardens. Built on the elevated bastion ramparts. At the gardens, you see gorgeous views of the Grand Harbour and the three cities: Vittoriosa, Cospicua, and Senglea.

Then you proceed to Mdina, Malta’s old capital city. This “silent city” has seen major historical events due to its strategic position in Malta. Namely on top of Malta’s highest plateaus. This walled city enjoys spectacular views of the countryside. Which you can see the best from the bastions. The bastions are not wheelchair accessible.
