T he ongoing boost from 2018, when Valletta served as European Capital of Culture, makes this city an all-round joy to visit – that and the temperatures, which stay in the teens even in midwinter, and only get better from there. The former stomping ground of the crusading Knights of Malta is a Baroque beauty written in stone, and given a distinctive touch by the enclosed wooden balconies on almost every historic building. The city itself is one of Europe’s smallest capitals, but the urban area takes in other mini-cities such as Floriana, Sliema and Senglea, which crowd around Valletta’s two lanking harbours.
