Lonely Planet puts Malta's capital on top cities list for 2015
In compiling its top 10 cities for 2015, world renowned Lonely Planet put Malta's own capital city Valletta on this exclusive list.
This is what Lonely Planet had to say in its opening about our historical city:
"Valletta has had an architectural overhaul, introducing Renzo Piano’s new gateway to the city, his parliament building faced with laser-cut stonework and an open-air auditorium. Valletta’s unspoilt 17th-century buildings line a beautifully laid-out grid of streets. The contrast between old and new is what makes the new additions all the more startling. This year the city will also commemorate 450 years since the Great Siege, with remembrance particularly strong on 8 September, Victory Day."
