The grid of narrow streets house some of Europe’s finest works of art, churches and palaces.
nightlife in Valetta
Although Valletta is the capital, if we have to talk about nightlife, it is quieter than the areas we have just seen. The type of nightlife is for a more adult age group, so no nightclubs, but many places to drink sophisticated cocktails.The famous Strait Street, once a red light district, today offers a wide choice of places to drink quality wines and elaborate cocktails. All accompanied by background music, often live. In the area it is also possible to eat as there are many restaurants.

The three islands that make up the Maltese Archipelago – Malta, the largest; Gozo, the mythical isle of Calypso; and tiny Comino, famous for its Blue Lagoon – form a very special diving site at the heart of the Mediterranean.
The islands invite you to discover their natural harbours, bays, sheltered creeks, cliffs, reefs and wrecks. The waters here are some of the most limpid and clear in the world. Visibility is excellent down to around 30 metres. So Malta is a dream destination for underwater photography. Marine life flourishes in a vibrant display of colours.
With dive sites just a stone’s throw away from each other, you will be able to explore a variety of underwater worlds. We’ve listed some of the best known dive sites ranging from labyrinthine caves to reefs and wartime wrecks.
For more excitement, try a night dive or dive deeper to 30 or 40 metres. Colours appear almost fluorescent by torchlight. For the more experienced, these dives offer a unique adventure.
St. Peter’s Pool
St. Peter’s Pool is one of the most beautiful and stunning natural swimming pools in Malta and is located close to Marsaxlokk at the tip of Delimara Point in the southwest of Malta.
The sea at St. Peters Pool is crystal clear with an amazing azure and light green colors and offers excellent snorkelling opportunities. The flat rocks around St Peter’s Pool provide perfect sunbathing areas and the high rocks offer some shade from the strong sun.
Ladders are available to access the sea and the more adventurous bathers have the option of diving into the waters from a few meters up. St. Peter’s Pool is popular with the locals, especially for those living in nearby villages and with tourists who are looking for a quieter place to spend their day. However, due to its remote location and bad roads leading there it’s rarely ever crowded and you can always find a spot just for yourself.
Rabat is a village located in the West of Malta. In the 15th century several religious orders arrived in Rabat, remaining there ever since. When the Order of St. John arrived in Malta, Rabat earned significance for its close proximity to Mdina, St Paul’s Grotto, the Covent Schools and for the arable farmland in the village.
The 20th century brought about major developments in Rabat. The population increased to around 12,000 after the Second World War. This growth encouraged the construction of new housing areas such as Tal-Virtu and Ghajn Qajjet. Nowadays, this remarkable development distinguishes the old part of the town from the new.
Rabat contributes to the Maltese economy by exploiting tourism and agriculture. Parts of the film Munich and Black Eagle were shot in Rabat, while the Apostolic Nunciature of the Holy See to the Republic of Malta is located in Rabat too.
St. Paul’s Grotto
Tradition holds that the Apostle St. Paul used one of these caves as a base for his apostolic work, which became a meeting place for the first Christian community. This grotto could thus be considered as the foundation site of the Catholic Church in Malta, a declaration that was done in 1617. Since then, the grotto has been considered as a sacred space.
Domvs Romana (Roman Villa)
The Domvs Romana hosts the remains of a valuable townhouse that has excellent mosaics found in the Peristyle and the surrounding rooms. The mosaic pavements rank among the finest and most ancient mosaic compositions in the western Mediterranean, along with those of Pompeii and Sicily.
Rabat hosts the well-known Catacombs of St. Paul and St. Agatha. These were utilized in Roman times to lay the dead to rest
A 16th century palace combining fine architecture and impressive antique furniture, paintings and objets d’art.
This museum hosts an exhibition of Punic-Roman artefacts including ceramics, pottery, portraits, sculptures and so much more.
