Views from Valletta

When a Maltese wedding enters your summer diary, you know better than to refuse. Turning the occassion into a chance for a summer getaway, we all headed out.

Being J’s first time on the island, a tour was essential, so in-between celebrations and family meals in abundance we tried to squeeze some of the best spots we could into the week; starting with Valletta.

We eventually came to our favourite spot on the island, the Saluting Battery.

There is such a mix of cultures here with thanks to its wide and varied history, and if you fancy it there are plenty of places to learn about it, from details about the Knights of St John to Malta’s importance during the war. If your curious about the latter you can be taken on a tour around the secret underground military base that was critical during WWII.

Or you can just do as the Maltese do, wander, eat, drink, relax and maybe go for a dip. You’ll fit in perfectly.
