Usually, when I am in Valletta it means I have to do something at the ID building- been there 3 or 4 times already or I am just passing by and don’t have time to chill out there. This week mum mum is over so we are visiting all the interesting places and the other day we spent in Valletta, just wandering around, admiring the architecture. If you go away from the two main streets which are Republic and Merchant street you come across quiet, narrowed streets with plenty of laundry hanging between the houses and you can have a real feel of Mediterranean. You have to bear in mind that Valletta is built on the hill, you go up and down a lot, so have good walking shoes with you. There are plenty of places to sit down for a quick coffee or lunch. One of my favourite is the restaurant on Merchant Street- I don’t remember the name but it’s the one with red shutters and have some of the tables on the square near the cathedral. All the pizzas are very good and the staff is friendly. The other day we tried octopus and mussels and we left very happy as the dishes were delicious.
