A warm and welcoming destination for those who look to escape the snow and the shivers, Malta is off the coast of the Mediterranean and offers azure waters where you can be adventurous or watch the seascape lazily, lounging on the sands. Ensure to plan an itinerary to visit the historical and memorable places around here.

Valleta

Valleta is the capital city of Malta and is known popularly in Maltese as II-Belte. Similar to most capital cities it is equipped with industries and business houses. In the midst of all these it still nurtures the ancient architectural monuments from the 17th century. It is a fortress city named after its founder and exhibits fascinating architectural skills from time immemorial. Nestled in the midst of the walls and fortresses are the innumerable gardens worth a visit. The travel planner must include visits to the St. Johns Co-Cathedral and the local museum, for they speak of times gone by and the moments of the past.

Mdina

Mark this city on the Malta itinerary planner for wandering lazily through its cobblestone structures. The city is called the ‘silent city of Malta’ as it echoes the emotions of the entire island besides sharing the architectural fortresses which are marvellous. Virgin and untouched by industries, this city is the ideal place to lounge in and get absorbed in the lap of nature at its best. The weather is warm and conducive for swimming and other water activities. The fortified walls of this medieval town speak of the Knights who constructed them. The city yields itself to a certain quaintness associated with luxury and peace at the same time.

Along the northern water front is this little town which hosts the upper classes of Malta proudly. A pulsating nightlife, shopping, fancy restaurants and all other means of the modern person can be experienced in this once-quaint, sleepy town.
