Discover Malta

Dazzling beaches, cosmopolitan facilities, conference venues and a warm climate make Malta the perfect destination for any age group – for anything from a brief business visit for a MICE event to an extended family holiday full of sightseeing, entertainment and relaxation.

Whether on the main island Malta, or on its quiet and beautiful sister-island of Gozo, visitors can experience the country’s genuinely good food, its appreciation of art, its wealth of vibrant local traditions, and its colourful summertime celebrations called festas – which all combine to make Malta a truly unique and friendly country.

Guests at the Corinthia Palace Hotel & Spa travel to Malta for anything from a weekend break to a two-week stay, or even longer. To help inspire you, we have put together a possible itinerary for your trip that will make the most of your time on the islands.

Day 1

Following check-in at the hotel, relax after your journey with delicious Afternoon Tea in the Orange Grove, followed by a rejuvenating massage within the leisure facilities at our Athenaeum Spa.

Next step is to settle into your bedroom, discovering the many luxuries it will offer you during your stay. Complete your first day in Malta by experiencing the delicious Far Eastern flavours of dinner at Rickshaw.

Day 2

Kick-start your day with breakfast in the hotel’s San Anton Suite or in the Executive Lounge. The morning could then bring a walk around Mdina, with a visit to the ‘Silent City’s’ iconic St Paul’s Cathedral.

While in the area of Mdina, it’s easy to then discover the Domvs Romana, the ancient remains of a Roman aristocratic townhouse that still stands in Rabat, a short walk from Mdina’s city gate. Rabat also has historic underground catacombs to explore, as part of a walk around the village that could finish with freshly-made pastizzi (Maltese traditional cheese- or pea-filled filo pastries) bought from the renowned Crystal Palace pastizzeria.

Avid walkers may also wish to take a further stroll to Dingli cliffs to take in the magnificent sea views. Or, if not, then it’s back to the hotel to put your feet up and order room service, or enjoy a delicious meal at the Villa Corinthia.

Day 3

Following a satisfying breakfast in the San Anton Suite or Executive Lounge, another day of taking in the sights could be enjoyed, this time in the south of the island. Start by taking a boat tour departing from Wied iz-Zurrieq towards one of Malta’s most famous natural attractions, the Blue Grotto.

A pleasant stroll around the fishing village of Marsaxlokk could follow, completed by a light seafood snack for lunch. If you are lucky enough to be there on a Sunday, you might also browse the village’s expansive outdoor market, which sells everything from fresh fish to souvenirs.

After lunch, it’s time to recharge back at the Corinthia Palace, perhaps by taking a swim in one of the hotel’s pools or indulging in a sunset cocktail. Round out another day under the Maltese sun with a nourishing and tasty seasonal meal at The Summer Kitchen or back at the Villa Corinthia.

Day 4

On your final day on the island, why not order room service to deliver you breakfast in bed? Once you are ready to go, then take a short bus ride to the Three Cities, before strolling around the narrow streets and stopping off for lunch at one of the many quality restaurants in the area.

After lunch, cross over to Valletta via a ferry, where you can witness the historic Grand Harbour from the vantage point of the Upper Barrakka Gardens, before experiencing the local culture with visits to St John’s Co-Cathedral, which houses Caravaggio’s only signed artwork, and the recently opened Malta National Community Art Museum named MUŻA.

Bid farewell to Malta in style with a final dinner and drinks in the heart of capital city Valletta – the perfect place to start planning your next trip to the wonderfully unique Maltese islands!
