VALLETTA, MALTA — TUESDAY, MAY 8: 8am – Overnight, departing 6am (May 9)

Malta packs a lot of history in a small country. Valletta, shaped by the Knights Hospitaller, is known for its late-Renaissance concentration of fortifications, Baroque, and Mannerist architecture. St. John’s Co-Cathedral is ornate, squared. Medieval Mdina, the old capital, offers palazzos, winding lanes, and photo ops. But for archaeology buffs, Malta’s cities pale next to its evocative scattered UNESCO Megalithic sites.
