A picturesque harbour city jutting into the Mediterranean Sea, Valletta is the capital of Malta and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Valletta's peninsula measures only a couple of kilometres in length, making it easy to explore on foot - but what the city lacks in square footage, it makes up for in things to see and do.
Valletta has preserved much of its 16th-century architectural heritage and UNESCO considers the city "one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world."
Located just under 10km away from the Radisson Blu Resort in St. Julian's and even reachable from the hotel along Malta's seaside promenade, Valletta is the perfect day out for guests of this 5-star hotel in Malta.
