Left, however, there is a joke in Malta that “we neither drive on the left nor the right, we drive in the shade!” So keep your eye out when coming around tight corners.

Get to know the capital

Valetta

As the capital of Malta, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the 2018 European Capital of Culture, Valletta has a lot to live up to. But don’t worry, it doesn’t disappoint.

The city is packed with monuments – labelled as one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world – and its 16th century buildings seem to glow gold in the sunlight. Be sure to visit St John’s Co-Cathedral and the Grand Master’s Palace to fully immerse yourself in Valletta’s dramatic elegance.

Sitting above a natural harbour, you can park your car and simply walk around this compact city.
