When taking a Mediterranean cruise, you may find a chance to escape, for a brief while, at one of the most beautiful ports of call in the world. The Valletta Grand Harbour in Malta provides passengers with the opportunity to experience the history, culture and attractions of this southern European island and country – one of the exciting stops that ships make who regularly cruise the Mediterranean.
Reaching Out the Historical Malta
The wide stretch of the water of Valletta Grand Harbour serves to separate the historically-rich towns of Cospicua, Senglea and Vittoriosa from Valletta, the Maltese capital. This Mediterranean port of call is one of the exquisite honeymoon spots for history lover newlyweds. Filled with 7,000 years of history, this one-day excursion features noteworthy European historical monuments and buildings, including the city’s parliamentary stronghold and the Grand Masters’ Palace. You can also experience history in the form of underground catacombs, megalithic temples, forts and churches.
Valletta Sightseeing is Like a Traveling Back in Time
Cruise guests that visit Valletta Grand Harbour can go also back in time by participating in an interactive walkthrough of the city and viewing multimedia attractions that can be experienced in less than a day – an interesting and rich way to preview all the history and beauty that the capital of Valletta offers its guests, whether they stay for a short while or extend their visit. The introduction to the island city will, no doubt spark your interest, in discovering more about the capital’s sites and attractions. You certainly won’t feel deprived when it comes to viewing all the sites. Not only will you be rewarded with a beautiful and temperature climate, but you will also be given the opportunity to explore and discover sites that can only be described as breath-taking if not magnificent.
Explore the Attractions in Valletta
Because Malta is small, cruise-goers to Valletta Grand Harbour can see a lot of sights during a stopover of one day. Not only are tours in Valletta arranged for the three historic cities of Senglea, Vittoriosa and Cospicua, stopovers may also include a short excursion to the famed silent city of Mdina or include a trip to the serene isle of Gozo. For anyone who likes crafts or handmade fare, then the crafts village of Ta’ Quali is a must-see attraction. You can also catch a bus or taxi and explore the Maltese islands on your own. Needless to say, it certainly is not surprising that this part of the world is one of the preferred cruise destinations in the Mediterranean.
Some Other Things to Do in Valletta
Besides the above sites, attractions and historical points of interest, you will find Malta to be a key spot for the display of fine arts as well as theater and musical productions. View the exhibits at the city’s National Museum of Fine Arts or take in an opera, concert or musical at the Valletta Manoel Theatre or at one of the open-air venues that feature this kind of musical entertainment. You simply cannot find so much culture and entertainment in one place – all of which makes you wonder what other sites and attractions you will discover on a Mediterranean cruise holiday.
