Valletta Day 1
We decided right from the first day of our week long vacation in Malta that we were not going to waste any time. We had six days to spend in Valletta and each day had to count. While we did have jetlag at the time, we were not going to let it get in the way of our cultural blitzkreiging. As soon as we had our breakfast at our lovely and centrally located Osborne Hotel, off we went to the city center to explore and discover.
We started our adventure by walking down Merchant Street. We did not have any specific plan as to which attraction to visit first but we did decide to visit any we saw along the way right away.
From Merchant Street, we walked over to Republic Street where we saw the Valletta Food Market, the Library, the Palace of Justice and St. John Co Cathedral. Then we made our way to Fort St. Elmo and the National War Museum and later ended up at the Lower Barrakka Gardens.
Valletta was a definite feast for the eyes.
