Established in the 16th century at the intersection of the Grand Harbour to the east and Marsamextt Harbour to the west coast of the Mediterranean, Valletta houses some amazing architectural marvels of Europe. The city has a blend of Baroque and Renaissance architectural styles. The city, listed under the world heritage sites by UNESCO, has shaded alleyways that connect grand squares with magnificent palazzi that sit beside shop facades hardly changed in centuries. The city was originally built for military and strategic operations but later turned into a fine showcase of Baroque decorative art. The beautiful interiors of St John's Cathedral are an exceptional example of the architecture.
Magnificent sea views surround the city. There are many hiking trails and walkways to enjoy. Valletta is a small city with an area of less than 1 sq km and you can stroll across its widest point in less than 20 minutes. However, the magnificent Grand Harbour is the largest harbor in the Mediterranean. Apart from its rich cultural heritage, the city has its own modern charms. Valletta's new cafes, pubs, and restaurants have boosted its previous image as a sober sunspot. The city also has some extraordinary boutique resorts and self-catering accommodation choices that have attracted a more cultured crowd. Apart from that, there are a lot of outdoor activities you can enjoy such as sailing and cycling.
One of the major advantages of visiting Valletta is a small area of the city and a well organized public transport system that consists of route buses. The main bus terminus is located just outside the city. The bus services are decent, serving major tourist areas and attractions. Bus trips can be planned using the website of Malta Public Transport. All you need to do is mention the pick and drop point to get the complete route options.

A few years ago, the center of Valletta used to be very calm after the office workers and the commercial crowd left for the day. However, the pubs and fashionable bars have added vibrancy to the nightlife of Valletta. The area around Strait Street, which was once a red-light district full of sailors' bars, is now a hub for the city's exciting nightlife. Just underneath the city walls, the Valletta Waterfront also accommodates a number of restaurants and cafes. There are large open-air seating areas that face the harbor. If you want a great clubbing experience, then head to Paceville in St Julian (about 8km north of Valletta). This party destination is the hub of Malta's clubland, so get ready to explore nightclubs, strip clubs, bars, and restaurants.
