Sculptural quietude

Beautiful honey-coloured stone buildings, Baroque statues, domes and spires, narrow winding streets of Old Town, Renaissance architectural masterpieces... there is no other place but Vallette where the city heart is found. Pastel shades of pink, terracotta red, and peachy-pink transform the city into a vibrant theater scene. Gigantic limestone plates shine golden in fading light filling the environment with Medieval atmosphere and coziness. Here in Malta, you can savour both a good life and delicious cuisine. Most importantly, you should dive right in to each and every timeless location.

For traditional Maltese cuisine, head to NONI restaurant in Valletta. We recommend tasting the confit rabbit and octopus, artfully prepared using the tagine method. After a lazy dinner, stop by for a cocktail at CITY LIGHTS, located in the premises of an old theater, the interior of which reflects the era of the eighties and will leave an enchanting mood for further evening travel.

You can see the greatest masterpieces of Caravaggio at the St John’s Cathedral. It’s a mesmerising, totally original example of Renaissance art: dark, brooding and unflinching.
