1 National Museum of Archaeology
The Venus of Malta from Hagar Qim, these curved female figures are likely to be depictions of goddesses
2 Malta Experience
3 Fort St Elmo
4 Valletta waterfront
5 St Johns Co-Cathedral
The decoration is supplemented with sculptures and lots of art – the most famous is The Beheading of St John by Caravaggio. The museum has an audio guide that tells you lots (too much?!) about the cathedral – but I appreciated the details around the paintings.
There you have it 5 things to do in Valletta old town!
Oh and it’s very photogenic!! For more great spots to look at the unique architecture in Malta, check out this post from Erika’s Travels on Malta’s Beautiful Fortified Cities.
