What's Valletta Like?

Valletta is an ancient city with history at every turn. Often compared to Venice and Cadiz, the city has streets lined with eye-catching buildings dating from the 16th century to the modern day. It is also famed for the number of stunning places of worship located within its boundary, including St John's Co-Cathedral, which boasts frescoes by Mattia Preti and paintings by Caravaggio. Valletta also has a burgeoning nightlife with the 'The Gut' area being rejuvenated in recent years. Once a district occupied by British and America sailors, its streets are now lined with sophisticated eateries and bars. Other leading Valletta attractions include the National Museum of Archaeology, Fort St Elmo, the Church of St Paul's shipwreck, and the Grand Master's Palace - the seat of Malta's government and home to the island's biggest collection of arms. Valletta is also a great base for exploring the rest of the island and for taking a day trip to the Italian isle of Sicily by catamaran.

Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Valletta

People have been stopping off in Malta since the days of The Crusades and the country is very appreciative of tourism so you will find the locals very welcoming. English is one of the country's official languages, but it cannot hurt to learn a few words of Maltese. Key phrases include "Iva" (Yes), "Le" (No), "Merhba" (Welcome), "Jekk jogħġbok" (Please) and Grazzi (Thank You). Hello is very easy to say as it quite simply "hello". If you do not want to look like a tourist it makes sense to avoid clothing such as caps and shorts. Some of the country's religious sites also ask that men wear long trousers before entering the premises, while women are required to wear scarves over their heads at the Co-Cathedral.
