As Europe's southernmost capital and the EU's smallest, Valletta is a city that punches well above its weight, boasting an impressive collection of 320 monuments within just 0.55 square kilometres. Named after Jean Parisot de Valette, who valiantly defended the island during the Great Siege of Malta, the city was constructed by the Knights Hospitaller in the 16th century. Along its narrow, cobbled streets, you'll discover an architectural feast, ranging from the hallmark Baroque to Neo-Classical and Modern styles, all bearing the scars and triumphs of a rich and tumultuous history.

Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980, Valletta was also chosen as the European Capital of Culture in 2018. Beyond its fortress-like walls, two natural harbours, Marsamxett and the Grand Harbour, provide a picturesque backdrop to the city's bustling tourist industry, particularly centred around the Grand Harbour area.
