A week in Malta: what to see and do


Malta's colorful heritage is evident the moment you step foot on the island. In the city, which has been controlled by a variety of civilizations, the architecture, culture, and language all come together. You don't have to think twice about visiting one of Europe's most secure countries, which has beautiful weather and a Greek Island vibe.

With just a few days on the island, you'll have plenty to keep you occupied. Even if you just have one week in Malta, you will be overwhelmed by the sheer volume of things to see and do.

A sovereign state, Malta is in fact. The Mediterranean Sea-bordered 245 m2 enclave is one of Europe's least-visited countries. It's a popular site for British visitors throughout the summer months. Having a strong ex-pat community seems to have helped a lot of individuals stay in the same locations year after year. Many Maltese-born people make the trip at least once a year, if not more frequently.

Taking a leisurely stroll around the city squares of European cities is a popular hobby. While in Washington, DC, you may either admire the city's amazing architecture or watch as water pours forth in time with the music playing in the background. Also, Malta has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, according to 1001beach.com's top 10.

Visit CASA ROCCA PICCOLA for a look around.

Are you interested in learning more about the nobility of Malta? Visiting Casa Rocca Piccola, a 16th-century palace, is essential. The ancestral home of the 9th Marquis de Piro, who lived there until recently, may be found here.

St. John the Baptist's co-cathedral is a must-see.

In terms of Gothic architecture, this cathedral is one of the best specimens in the world. Statues and the building itself, both of which date from the late 1500s, exhibit elements of Baroque art. The Knights of Malta's effect on Maltese culture is further demonstrated by this example.

It's time for a battery to be savored at the Upper Barrakka Gardens.
