Tourist Sites in Malta

Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, Paola Square

The Hal Saflieni Hypogeum is a World Heritage Site and it’s truly one of the most magnificent tourist sites in Malta since the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum is said to be one of the oldest (if not the oldest) underground burial site in the world.

In fact, it’s around 3000 years old and only a dozen of people are allowed inside it every day so, you do feel like a very important person when visiting the Hypogeum. Be sure though to book at least 8 weeks in advance, especially if you are visiting during the high season since tickets are very sought-after.

Casa Rocca Piccola, Republic Street

Casa Rocca Piccola is located in Valleta and it’s without a doubt, one of the top places to visit in Malta. Casa Rocca Piccola is one of the most beautiful houses in Valleta and one of the best places in Malta to get a good insight into how a wealthy Maltese family would've left back then.

The house is gorgeously decorated and filled with beautiful painting collections and lavish fittings for visitors to look at. During the guided tour, you also get to visit every single room of the house, as well as the gardens and the underground bomb shelters built during WWII.

St. Paul’s Catacombs, Bajjada Triq Sant Agata

St. Paul’s Catacombs is located in Rabat and it’s probably one of the most historic tourist sites in Malta since it’s the oldest ancient site in Malta. Visiting the catacombs of St. Paul is a true mind-altering experience as you'll be amazed by the maze-like passage-ways and centuries-old frescoes.

During the guided tour, you also get to visit the eerie crypt of St. Agatha where you’ll see human skeleton remains.

St. John's Co-Cathedral, Lucia Street

St. John's Co-Cathedral is located in Valletta and it’s without question one of the most stunning tourist sites in Malta. St. John's Co-Cathedral is also one of the largest and most lavishly decorated churches in Malta boasting one of the most awe-inspiring interiors you’ll ever see!

The minute you step inside the church you’ll be greeted by beautifully gold decorated walls, colorful marble stones and beautiful paintings. If you only have a short time in Valleta, make sure St. John's Co-Cathedral is high on your list of thing to see in Malta!

The Malta Classic Car Collection Museum, San Pawl il-Bahar

If you are a fan of classic cars, the Malta Classic Car Collection Museum in Bugibba is another must see attraction that you have to add to your list of tourist sites in Malta. The museum boasts on display a beautiful collection of restored classic cars such as MG's and Minis, as well as classic motorbikes such as Lambretta and Vespa.

Besides seeing cool automobiles and motorbikes, you’ll be able to attend an interesting talk on cars and see a short movie on classic cars, as well as other exhibits like photo mementos and model cars.

Blue Grotto, Zurrieq

If you’re looking to visit natural tourist sites in Malta, you won't find a more beautiful place to go to than the Blue Grotto in the southern coast of Malta. The Blue Grotto consists of a small group of caverns that boast stunning and colorful rock formations.

The only way to see the Blue Grotto is by hiring a local boat from Zurrieq Harbor, or by booking an organized tour from Valleta. However you get there, you will be blown away by the stunning emerald waters, caverns and beautiful scenery around you!

Mdina Cathedral, St Paul's Square Mdina

Malta boasts indeed many cathedrals, though the Mdina Cathedral in Mdina is easily one of the nicest tourist sites in Malta since it's one of the least expensive churches you can visit in Malta. Mdina Cathedral also boasts beautiful ceiling frescoes, as well as interesting exhibits and religious artifacts on display.

The Malta Experience, Mediterranean Street

The Malta Experience is located in Valletta and it’s probably one of the first places place to visit if you are a first time visitor to Malta. The Malta Experience is like a history museum, but rather than seeing exhibits you get to watch a 45 minute movie and learn about the island of Malta in an interacting and informative manner.

Malta Popeye Village, Mellieha

Malta Popeye Village is definitely one of the most popular tourist sites in Malta, and a fun place to spend an entire day out with the family. Malta Popeye Village is certainly geared towards families with small kids so, if you’re traveling with children you’ll have a blast at the village seeing Popeye characters, doing a bit of mini-golf and going downs the water slides.

Mdina Dungeons

The Mdina Dungeons is another interesting tourist attraction that you could to your itinerary if you have tome to spare in Malta. The Mdina Dungeons are located just below the Magisterial Vilhena Palace and it's an interesting place to enjoy a tour and learn about Malta’s gory past.

This attraction will certainly not be everyone’s cup of tea because of the gory wax figures. If you’re of a squeamish disposition you may want to give this place a miss!
