Valletta is the heart of this tiny island nation and the most southerly capital city in Europe. A four hour sail from Sicily, Malta is a country rich in architecture and long in history. My husband promised I’d fall in love with it. He was right, and without a doubt, I now consider Valletta the equal of many other European cities.
