HISTORIC AND COLOURFUL VALLETTA WATERFRONT
The Valletta Waterfront, is an extension of Malta’s capital city, Valletta. Having access to the Mediterranean Sea, it was used as a port for merchandising by the Knights of St. John and European merchants. The Valletta Waterfront is made of nineteen baroque style warehouses, originally built by Grand Master Pinto. The warehouses, a historical landmark, were revived, creating a hub of restaurants, retail outlets and office space. The promenade features colourful renovated façades, dating back 250 years.
During the day you can experience the hustle and bustle of the cruise port, where you can see cruiseliners dock into the Valletta Cruise Port, allowing Cruise passengers to visit. You can also see the traditional Maltese boats, called Luzzu, and take a ride in one. You can find various restaurants with both local and foreign cuisine. All restaurants have outdoor seating, showing a gorgeous view of the Mediterranean sea. At night the waterfront is beautifully lit, making it perfect for a nice promenade walk, or for drinks and dinner at one of the restaurants. The Valletta Waterfront can be accessed by car or by the circular bus 122, from Valletta .
The beautiful Valletta waterfront is the gateway to Malta's capital city Valletta. In fact, it is one of the most successful Mediterranean ports in Europe. 🎥 Video by @farukdoan #malta #wowmalta #gozo #comino #sea #travel #stjulians #valletta #love #maltaphotography #malta2017 #gozoisland #maltagozo #sun #beautiful #travelphotography #traveladdict
