Valletta the perfect city break!

Win £1,000 towards a break to Valletta, the capital of Malta.

Are you looking for the perfect escape, somewhere warm with a rich historical past, somewhere romantic and vibrant?

Then this autumn, head to stunning Valletta - the capital city of Malta - a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the European Capital for Culture for 2018.

You can discover the Baroque architecture of the Grand Master's Palace and St John's Co-Cathedral and even witness the battery salute from the Upper Barrakka Gardens. Why not wander the cobbled streets of Valletta, explore the New Esplora Science Museum, and spend an evening enjoying nightlife? If you're staying for a longer weekend, why not hop over to Malta's sister islands of Gozo or Comino and discover more beautiful scenery steeped in hundreds of years of history and myth.

Make sure you try some delicious Maltese cuisine, whether by the Mediterranean Waterfront or with a drink in one of the atmospheric bars located within the walls of Valletta. Then, once your day of exploring is complete, you can head back to your hotel to relax and unwind.
