I admit to being something of a door and window junkie. I especially love doors. With that in mind, Valletta, Malta was a dream. I just thought I should warn you, because you’re going to see a few!☺️
We arrived in Valletta on Saturday morning for an overnight stay. We didn’t have anything planned for the morning, so I spent some much needed quality time with my friends Balcony and Coffee, and later we walked around the waterfront area for a while.
Back to the doors…to find the doors requires a good local guide, and we loved our late afternoon walking photography tour with Dragana Rankovic of Photograph Malta. There were only four of us (2 couples), so the tour was very much tailored to our needs and interests. Dragana showed us highlights and hidden gems of Valletta, and helped with the technical aspects of photography too. We walked around Valletta exploring many streets we never would have found on our own. This was another “exercise” tour…Valletta is very hilly! Something that surprised me was the number of homes that are unoccupied and have been empty for many years. Some of them were prime real estate, and I would have expected them to be snatched up and renovated.
After our tour, Dragana helped us get a reservation outside at Trabuxa, an excellent Italian restaurant in the old city. It was a fantastic day and evening!
