Itinerary

Join your guide and small group in the heart of Valletta. After a brief overview of the city’s history since the Knights of St. John (Hospitallers) built it in 1565, stroll past star attractions from the Baroque era: the Auberge de Castille, St. John’s Co-Cathedral, and the Church of St. Paul’s Shipwreck. Hear tales of Maltese history as you view the Grandmaster’s Palace.

See sights from the new Parliament building and the ruins of the Royal Theater to Fort St. Elmo and the Siege Bell War Memorial. Wander the charming Barrakka Gardens with their sweeping views across Grand Harbor as you learn about modern Valletta. Finally, bid guide and group farewell in central Valletta.

Overview

With so much to see in such a compact area, a walking tour is by far the most convenient way to experience UNESCO-listed Valletta. But large groups can be crowded and impersonal. This Valletta walking tour is limited to just 15 people, meaning personal attention as you check off the sights: perfect for first-time visitors or anyone with limited time.

Highlights
  • Explore Valletta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in a small group with a guide
  • See the Grandmaster’s Palace, St. John’s Co-Cathedral, and Fort St. Elmo
  • Learn about Malta’s history, culture, and architecture from your local guide
  • Stroll through the idyllic Upper and Lower Barrakka Gardens
