Malta’s capital city, Valletta, may be the smallest in Europe, but it still manages to cram in a lot of entertainment! Enjoy museums, lovingly cared for gardens and picture perfect views in the capital before venturing out to uncover the rest of Malta.
Valletta is terrific for exploring by foot. The city is surrounded by water and high walls which were originally intended as a defence against the Ottomans after they attempted to seize control of Malta in 1565. Today, Valletta is the cultural centre of Malta and has some of the most interesting historical attractions, such as the Lascaris War Rooms, the Malta at War Museum and St John’s Co-Cathedral.
Walk along the city walls during sunset for the most striking views of Valletta, the Grand Harbour and the Mediterranean Sea. For a peaceful stroll, visit the Lower Barakka Gardens, where you can make the most of relaxing water features and spots providing shade to shelter from the sun.
Perhaps four wheels are more your thing? Try something a little different with a visit to The Malta Classic Car Collection just 30 minutes outside of Valleta by car and close toSt. Paul's Bay. The museum holds a privately owned collection of 100 classic cars dating back to 1928. You can also immerse yourself in more nostalgia with the attraction's retro memorabilia from the 1940s to the 1960s, including jukeboxes, gramophones and models dressed in retro clothing.
Watching marine life can be fascinating and soothing, so after your nostalgia fix at the classic car museum, you can call in at the Malta National Aquarium, which is just seven minutes away on foot. The aquarium has 41 tanks, arranged to reflect different areas of Malta and periods of time. The Roman section is a particular highlight since it showcases an ancient ghost shipwreck, home to damselfish, clownfish and cleaner shrimp.
The station nearby to the aquarium allows you to complete your day of animal discovery by taking a short 20-minute bus journey to Birdpark Malta. Participate in a daily handling session and get up close with one of the park’s macaws, owls or reptiles for an unforgettable experience!
Malta has a distinct style which will intrigue you from your very first visit. Take time to explore the islands and you’ll surely want to return.

The staff were great. Very professional, polite and helpful. Location is up the hill from the ferry terminal and other water based trips, which are just a gentle 5min walk down to (takes about 10mins slow walk back up to the hotel). The hotel is spotlessly clean and has a small rooftop pool with ...
Adults only rooftop pool is relaxing. Bbq night is great value for money.
Overall, Solana was a nice experience. The rooftop pool was incredibly over crowded and not relaxing at all and the food was just mediocre. However, the rooms were spacious and beautiful. The staff was lovely and accommodating. We used the spa, which was also a wonderful experience. Overall, good ...
Everything was terrific except the 86 steps from the property. They need to perhaps run a shuttle up to the top especially for the older people.
Great location. Beautiful views from the balcony. Easy walk to the town. Hotel was great as you have access to the sister hotel next door. Good facilities and good service
