Ranging from Neolithic temples such as Ġgantija, Ħaġar Qim and Mnajdra, to Valletta - Malta's Capital city built by the Knights of St. John, and Mdina - the beautiful medieval capital of Malta.

The island boasts three UNESCO World Heritage sites: the aforementioned Ġgantija Temples and Valletta, as well as the Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum. Valletta also had the honour of being chosen as the European Capital of Culture for 2018.

Local products are cheaper than imported brands, and supermarkets offer reduced prices when compared to smaller grocery stores. Products from roadside markets are popularly priced as well as fresh.
