WHS Malta: City of Valletta Jan 18, 2017
While staying in neighbouring Sliema in 2008, we took the opportunity to visit Malta's capital, Valletta. The city has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO and it definitely deserves the title.

Firstly a word of warning: the city is very steep in places so wear good shoes and take care on the uneven roads and pathways.

A great way to arrive in Valletta is via the ferry that operates between the city and Sliema and crosses the beautiful Marsamxett Bay. Climbing uphill from the ferry terminal towards the city centre is an arduous task but definitely worth it to see sights such as the 16th century St John's Co-Cathedral, the idyllic Barrakka Gardens and the nearby Siege Bell War Memorial.

Valletta has more than its fair share of restaurants to keep you fed and an ice cream is never too far away! I only scratched the surface during my visit to Valletta and I'd love to go back to see some of the museums and churches in greater detail.
Those steep Valletta back streets!
