First time to Malta, what are your best suggestions?

My partner and I have booked a trip to Malta in June for 2 weeks. It is both our first time travelling overseas and we are beyond excited. Decided to go Malta first as it is where my family is from (though none of them lives there anymore!). Were staying in St Julians and We have a few activities booked such as ferry to Gozo and Comino, tours etc pretty much the basic touristy stuff however for anyone who has been to Malta before, what are your best suggestions? Perhaps some hidden treasures or anything you thoroughly enjoyed? Our interests are broad, so please suggest anything you personally loved and why :)

Valletta is of course a must and you should certainly spend a day or two exploring the city.

The Three Cities , over the Grand harbour from Valletta are lovely historical towns .

The jewel in the crown is Mdina , the old capital of Malta .

There really is a lot to see in this small island.

Perhaps you could find out where your relatives came from and visit the places.

Some time in Gozo would be very enjoyable.

One of my favourites is a visit to Fort Rinella ---- google it .

Sure you would enjoy your stay in Malta .

Graham

If you are there 22nd and 23rd, you could go to Ghanafest, Maltese folk music. Evenings, Argotti gardens in Floriana.
