Discover Malta’s capital city on this immersive walking tour that takes you to Valletta’s main sights. Stroll past the historic Grandmaster's Palace, admire exquisite Baroque architecture and Italian artwork inside St John’s Co-Cathedral, and take in views of Grand Harbour from the terraced Upper Barrakka Gardens. Your guide will teach you about Valletta’s history and heritage, from the 1500s to today.
You’ll be picked up from your selected Malta hotel and taken to the entrance of the fortified city to begin your walking tour of Valletta, Malta’s capital city containing some of the country’s richest heritage. See all of the main attractions, landmarks and monuments of this fantastic city on a leisurely walk with your guide, who'll provide commentary about the sights you see throughout your tour, letting you enjoy a more meaningful and immersive experience. First, visit the Upper Barrakka Gardens, a beautiful public park whose terrace offers panoramic views of Grand Harbour and the old towns of Senglea and Vittoriosa. After soaking up the scenery, walk to St John’s Co-Cathedral, built for the Knights of St John in the 1500s. This sacred place of worship is a gem of Baroque architecture, as you'll discover as you wander through the towering halls. In the church's oratory and museum, marvel at spectacular works of art, including paintings by famed Italian artist Michelangelo Caravaggio. Walk past the Grandmasters’ Palace and the recently restored St. George’s Square before watching the Malta Experience, an audiovisual show where Malta’s history throughout the centuries is brought back to life. Afterward, your guide will drive you back to the hotel. You'll leave with a whole new appreciation for Maltese history, architecture, art and culture — not to mention the beautiful island scenery.
