These 5 fun, flexible and educational walks encompass all the highlights of Valletta... and beyond!

Valletta from the Knights of Malta to Colonial times

After the Great Siege of 1565, the Knights of the Order of St. John, or as they are more commonly known, the Knights of Malta, set about an ambitious project, the building of Valletta, the so-called 'city built by gentlemen for gentlemen'. Pope Pius IV sent his foremost engineer, Francesco Laparelli, to build the city both as a fortress to defend Christendom and as a European cultural masterpiece. Today you can still enjoy this masterpiece of architecture. This walk takes you down Republic Street, formerly known as Kingsway. You will pass by beautiful Auberges, richly adorned Churches, historical band clubs, the Magisterial Palace, and other monuments that recall episodes from the islands’ chequered history. The beauty of the buildings will leave you in awe as they represent some of the best examples of baroque architecture. This walk ends at Malta 5D, a unique attraction that allows you to explore Malta’s history. Shows run every 30 mins. from 10am to 4pm from Mon to Sat.

Valletta - The east side of the peninsula city

This walk takes you through the East side of the peninsula city of Valletta. It is the side the overlooks the Grand Harbour; the side of Valletta that has possibly witnessed more historical episodes than the western side. The walk takes you through landmarks of Malta’s political, social, religious, and commercial history when you walk by Auberge de Castille, the old University, St John’s Co. Cathedral, or the quaint George Zammit spice shop. And why not try some of the popular local pastry called “pastizzi” when you walk by the traditional pastizzeria. Take time to admire spectacular views of the Grand harbour from Upper Barrakka gardens and if you are there at noon, you’re in for a surprise!

Renzo Piano and the entrance to a walled city

The walled city of Valletta always had a main entrance within the Porta Reale Curtain. The entrance marks the beginning of Republic Street. Today’s entrance was designed by the world-renowned Italian architect, Renzo Piano. This walk starts from the timeless majesty of the Three Triton Fountain and then takes the visitor through the works of this Italian architect to the Embassy of the Knights of St John, the original builders of the city of Valletta.

Lower Valletta and Grand Harbour

This walk takes you round the lower parts of Malta’s Capital city start with Fort St. Elmo, the scene of one of Europe’s bloodiest battles, in 1565. You can see the splendour of the Sacra Infermeria of the Order of St. John and admire the bastions that the Knights built to protect their capital city. The walk continues to magnificent churches and other landmarks from Malta’s colourful past, along the edge of the grand Harbour.

Floriana - Borgo Vilhena

Floriana is a walled city just outside the walls of Valletta. The walls in Floriana were designed to keep enemy troops as far as possible from Valletta; a project started by Grand Master António Manoel de Vilhena. This walk takes you around the main attractions, buildings ad lovely gardens and walkways in Floriana; all sites that were and continue to be central to life in Malta.

"The app was so useful and the guides were incredibly friendly and courteous towards the current situation! Would definitely do this again in another city."
Katrina Johnson


Malta’s capital city and a World Heritage site. It is nothing short of an open-air museum, a living experience of Baroque architecture, a monument donated by the Knights of St John nearly five centuries ago.
