About the Region

Valletta is part of UNESCO’s World Heritage List, since it is deeply linked to the history of the military and charitable Order of St John of Jerusalem. It was ruled successively by the Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and the Order of the Knights of St John.

Due to its Mediterranean location, it is one of the sunniest cities in Europe, so it is likely you will be able to enjoy this sunny weather during your stay and do some sightseeing on this beautiful fortress city. Discover its 320 monuments including historical buildings, churches, palaces, baroque architecture, and much more in this “open air museum”.
