Ben's Valletta free walking tour
Hi, my name is Ben. I previously used to work in IT, but now I'm a full-time Tourist Guide! I'm a licensed professional tourist guide and I have guided thousands of people all around Malta. I'm also 100% Maltese, born & raised here. I love meeting new people and showing them around my country of Malta. I usually adapt to the audience, but I usually intersperse history, current Maltese culture, and what the Maltese people think & feel, together with recommendations for places to eat & drink (usually my favourite spots ;) ).
Valletta is a must-see when in Malta. Besides being the capital city, it houses the majority of Malta's museums and cultural and historical sites. It also contains some of Malta's best bars & restaurants.
In the tour, I will give a historical overview of Valletta, including the buildings we come across. I'll also give a contemporary context for the buildings, as well as the Maltese people's beliefs and cultural attitudes to current and past events.
We'll also pass by some highly recommendable bars and restaurants. I will point out my favourites for Maltese food, and for food & drink in general.
Some of the sites we will see (however due to time constraints and other factors this list might change):
- City Gate
- Hastings Garden
- Royal Opera House
- Castille Palace
- Upper/Lower Barrakka Gardens
- St. John's Co-Cathedral
- St. George’s Square
- Presidential/Grand Master's Palace
- The Pub
