Founded in 1565 as a refuge for soldiers returning from the Crusades, Valletta is still a refuge for travelers seeking an experience that’s off the beaten path. The Maltese Islands have been invaded and inhabited by so many nationalities that the islanders themselves now have a varied heritage. Cultural influences are evident from Phoenicians, Romans, Greeks, Normans, Sicilians, Swabians, Aragonese, Castilian, the Knights, and the British.
Northern Africans also contributed to the development of Malta’s history and official language. No surprise, this melting pot’s cuisine is a delicious fusion of French, Mediterranean, Spanish, Italian, and Maghreb flavors. Maltese’s national dish is fenek (stewed rabbit), a rich red sauce made with vegetables, spices, and tender rabbit, which is often served over pasta. Malta offers a lot more than the typical seaside destination.
The museums, exhibits, and religious temples coupled with beautiful scenery make Malta a unique travel destination even for the most seasoned explorers. From unique and historical forts to temples and trendy beach clubs, Malta offers an extensive array of venue choices for all group sizes and tastes. With state-of-the-art conference centers for up to 5,000 guests and 2,000 bedrooms in walking distance, Malta is your ideal meeting spot.
