Best attractions in Malta and Gozo

Valletta

Malta's capital, Valletta, is a remarkable city. The city is only 1 km long and 600 m wide, and every street leads to the sea. There is so much beauty around, and every house dates from the 16th of the 17th century. Many traditional balconies are pecking above each street, and it brings great uniqueness to it. In the last few years, it feels like the city has exploded, and in every corner, you will find a new shop, bar, restaurant or hotel opening. Even though it is that small, many attractions and museums can be found to explore. I must mention the street artists who add to the beauty of the city. Book a tour in Valletta, this city is one of the best attractions in Malta.

St John's Co-Cathedral

St John's Co-Cathedral lies in the heart of Valletta, and what it hides inside, makes it a story of its own. There are old baroque gold and lavish decoration in the interior, which is a real masterpiece one must visit when in Valletta. All the wall is covered in gold design, and the floor is a carpet of many coloured marble tombs. Here you can see one of the greatest works of Carravagio, The beheading of John.
