Before my teaching in the University of Bergamo I decided that after teaching I will have a holiday in Malta, Valletta, European Capital of Culture. I had flights from Helsinki to Istanbul and then to Malta with Turkish Airlines. Service was really good and transfers easy. Holiday week started on November 7th and ended 14th.
For the first day I visited the capital area namely Valletta. Here is night time picture from the seaside when approaching Valletta from the Gzira.
There is plenty to do for those who like history, culture and knights. Besides culture I also managed to spend time walking around the Gzira area opposite to Valletta.
The port is really busy with both military ships as well as commercial cruise ships and other ships. Different types of tours that take you to the nearby islands are hugely popular and hence there is something for the next time as well.
