Malta, Valletta Guide (B): Malta Itinerary. Fun Things to See and Do on a Long Weekend

The tiny island of Malta is jam packed with natural wonders to see and exciting things to do, despite being smaller than the Isle of Wight in the UK. If you only have a long weekend to spare, we’ve got it covered. To make things easy for you, we have a few suggestions on this Malta itinerary of places to visit and what to eat and drink.

We hope that this post will show you why this sunny Mediterranean isle makes it a perfect European long weekend destination.
