The capital city of Malta is lovely for strolling. Valletta is so compact. You can’t get lost. You just walk until you can’t anymore, until you hit the water and have to turn left or right.
It was my first time in Malta; Valletta was new and fresh, yet felt familiar, welcoming, and safe.
As I mentioned in my recent posts, I love the worn facades and colored doors in Valletta and Vittoriosa. And while there is so much more to Malta than I was able to see — resort towns, walled cities, grand cathedrals, lots and lots of churches — I was drawn to Valletta’s most accessible and visible bits: narrow and sloped streets, bright blue and green doors, old letterboxes, and red British post boxes throughout the old town.
