When to Go

  • April, May, June, September and October are the balmiest months, with lower prices, sunshine and fewer crowds. During June, high-profile dance music events are held around the city.
  • The Malta Fireworks Festival dominates the last week of April in a spectacular and colourful fashion, and in June, there's the Film Festival and Għanafest, which celebrates traditional music.
  • Summer is hot and lively, with the Malta Arts and Jazz festivals to look forward to in July.
  • Look out also for the Notte Bianca in October, when Valletta stays up particularly late.
