Visit the Grand Master Palace in St George’s Square, venture into St John’s Co-Cathedral (St John’s Square) to see the stunning interior. Take time to see some of the pre-historic temples, peruse museums, head underground to the catacombs, explore Casa Rocca Piccola or take a boat tour around the grand harbour.
Take in a show at Teatru Manoel which during December will have wonderful Christmas converts and choirs, or venture down Republic Street, for some late night shopping and to enjoy the beautiful Christmas decorations and lights.
