A Tour of Malta with Shopping and Entertainment Go Back
 
The sunny islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino make up the Maltese archipelago. The Knights of St. John fortified the Grand Harbour at Valletta, one of the Mediterranean's great bastions.

Valletta's sights include the Palace of the Grand Masters and the Armoury, St. John's Co-Cathedral and Museum, the National Museum of Fine Arts and the National Museum of Archaeology. See The Malta Experience, one of Europe's largest multivision shows, highlighting 7,000 years of history.

Sliema, with the neighboring St. Julian's-St. George's area, is the modern residential area with hotels, clubs and restaurants.

Cospicua, Senglea and Vittoriosa are also known as Bormla, L'Isla and Birgu--The Three Cities. These fortified towns on the eastern shores of the Grand Harbour were built before Valletta was constructed in 1566.

Rabat is known for St. Paul's Church, built next to a grotto where St. Paul is said to have taken refuge when he was shipwrecked on the island while being taken to Rome in A.D. 60. Also noteworthy are the early Christian catacombs dedicated to St. Paul and St. Agatha and the Museum of Roman Antiquities.

Gozo, the isle of mythical Calypso, can be reached in 20 minutes by car-ferry from Malta. The capital of Gozo, Victoria (popularly known as Rabat), is dominated by the Citadel and dates back to the 17th century.

Comino is the smallest of the inhabited islands. There are just a few families and one hotel. It can be reached only by ferry; boats from Malta (a 20-minute crossing) operate from April to mid-November.

Entertainment

The Manoel Theatre in Valletta, one of the oldest in Europe, is the principal site for plays, ballets and concerts. Organ and choral recitals are also held at St. John's Co-Cathedral and the Mdina Cathedral. English-language radio programs and a monthly cultural events program offer information on events of interest to visitors.Audio-video presentations shown in Valletta include The Malta Experience, highlighting episodes in the country's 7,000-year history, and Malta George Cross, depicting Malta's heroic role sin World War II. There are bars and nightclubs all over the island, but mainly concentrated in Sliema/St. Julian's, where you'll also find the casino, and in St. Paul's Bay/Bugibba.

Shopping

The Maltese are known for their gold and silver filigree and handmade lace. Other specialties include pottery, glass, ceramics, dolls, copper and brass articles.
