Church
“Built between 1573 and 1577, this cathedral contains two masterpieces by Caravaggio. St John’s Co-Cathedral is a gem of Baroque art and architecture. It was built as the conventual church for the Knights of St John. This church is till this very day an important shrine and a sacred place of worship. It is also a venue for cultural events. The construction was commissioned in 1572 by Grand Master Jean de la Cassière to serve as the conventual church of the Knights of Malta and designed by the Maltese military architect Gerolamo Cassar. The church was dedicated to St John the Baptist, the patron saint of the Order. The oratory holds the biggest and only signed masterpiece by Caravaggio. St John’s church is administered by the St John’s Co-Cathedral Foundation responsible for the religious cultural heritage of the monument.”

Italian Restaurant
$$
“Da Pippo on Melita Street is legendary, and so popular with locals that booking is a must. Only open for lunch, they do all the Mediterranean classics, but go with what they recommend on the day. Noisy and chaotic, this is a real Valletta experience.”

Bar
$$
“This quirky little bar overflows on the street at weekends, especially in summer. Get there early for one of the pink velvet armchairs in the alley outside. Tico Tico is a less seedy reincarnation of the original bar (of the same name) on this site that until the 1970s entertained sailors with drinks, floor shows and other services. Strait Street used to be known as 'The Gut' and was full of sailors' bars. After the Royal Navy left Malta, the area fell into dereliction. Tico Tico was one of the first in a new breed of places there.”

History Museum
“The National Museum of Archaeology is housed in the Auberge de Provence, an example of fine Baroque architecture, that was built in 1571, on plans by local architect Ġilormu Cassar. Of particular note is the Grand Salon, with its richly painted walls and wooden beamed ceiling. The Museum exhibits a spectacular range of artefacts dating back to Malta’s Neolithic period (5000 BC) up to the Phoenician Period (400 BC). Highlights include the ‘Sleeping Lady’ , the ‘Venus of Malta', bronze daggers, the Horus & Anubis pendant and the anthropomorphic sarcophagus, both belonging to the Phoenician period. A real must see!”
