Within the fortified walls of the capital one finds some of Europe's finest art works, churches, palaces as well picturesque gardens providing stunning views over Valletta harbours.

It was awesome because Nadine knew our guide from the day before (Anne) and they made sure there was no overlap! She was friendly and informative. The driver was great too!
