There are great things to do at every turn in Malta, a country that is full of history, cultural cities, extensive natural beauty, and an array of recreational activities. Whatever your interests are, you’re sure to find it catered for during your stay at your Malta holiday rental.
Start your exploring in Valletta, Malta’s capital city, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The city has many buildings that date back to the 16th century and many great attractions. St. John's Cathedral was built between 1572 and 1577 and boasts a stunning interior, and also has two famous works of art by the Italian artist Caravaggio.
Elsewhere in Valletta is the stunning Grand Master's Palace. Take a tour of the beautiful state rooms and take a look at the armoury, featuring pieces worn by the knights, the former residents of the palace. The Upper Barrakka Gardens are also highlights; they’re located on the highest point of the city and offer great views and a lovely place to take a stroll.
Thirty minutes from Valletta is Mdina, a well-preserved city that has some 3,000 years of history under its belt. Visit St. Paul’s Cathedral and stop by the Cathedral Museum. The real reason to visit Mdina is to stroll around the city. The medieval, winding streets are a step back in time. Make sure you check out the great views from the city walls, which are among the best in Malta.
Malta’s extensive natural beauty is there to be enjoyed, so try and get active during your stay. The water is warm and inviting here - go for long swims or try your hand at other watersports, such as kayaking, paragliding, and sailing.
