Why Valletta Malta

I’ve been to Valletta twice. Once a long time ago arriving by air and another about two years ago arriving by a cruise liner MSC Fantasia. Of course both times were epic as the place is so beautiful. The harbor itself does it for me. Not to mention the colors you see; its mostly brown and so soothing. Plus, its a UNESCO World Heritage site.


The capital city Valletta is located on the northern coast about midway down the island of Malta. Malta is in the Mediterranean Sea just south of the island of Sicily and east of Tunisia.
