City guide Valletta, Malta – Valletta is the capital of Malta and is definitely worth a visit when travelling to Malta. This travel guide will guide you through how to get there, what to see, and where to experience the fascinating Maltese history.

Valletta is known for its beautiful skyline and the fascinating churches, museums, palaces, and forts. The city was built as a fortress to protect Christendom and is mainly surrounded by water. In 1980, UNESCO named Valletta a World Heritage Site, because of its cultural density and recently it is announced that Valletta will be hosting the title of European Capital of Culture in 2018. So… Valletta is definitely a very interesting cultural place!

The airport is only 5 kilometers away from Valletta. From the airport, and surrounding cities, it is very easy to take a bus to Valletta. The bus infrastructure is well developed, but the traffic is sometimes horrible and can slow your trip down. When travelling from Sliema to Valletta, I recommend you to take the ferry. It is cheaper and faster than a bus and you will have a nice view of the Valletta skyline! Within Valletta, you don’t need any public transportation. All the sights are easily reachable by foot. ...... (follow the instructions below for accessing the rest of this article).
