A small marvel to the north of Valletta, St Julian's sparkles with a thousand lights under the sun of the Mediterranean. A former fishing village sheltered under Spinola Bay and Balluta Bay, "San Ġiljan" has today become one of the most important tourist centres of the island. Nothing surprising about that…St Julian's really has everything to please you!
St. Julian's is first and foremost in at the deep end of culture. In St. Julian's itself,you will be able to visit the famous Spinola Palace and the Villa Dragonara,and as you are a stone’s throw away from Valletta,the largest concentration of history in the world overhanging one of the most beautiful natural ports of Europe,don’t miss out on St. John’s Co-Cathedral nor the National Archeological Museum which are among the places you must visit. But don’t rush! The countless treasures of Maltese culture are to be discovered almost everywhere and without you expecting it.You pass from the megalithic to the baroque era,from stone to golden wood and from the deep grottos to the decorated cathedrals. At the bend of an alleyway,at the edge of a road,hollowed out in the rock,or in the depths of an inn…by going on foot or by bicycle,you will discover the most temples,grottos and finely sculpted stones and above all,don’t hesitate to make a stopover in one of the numerous restaurants and cafés of the island. Stop at a bakery or take a stroll through a market in order to taste fresh regional produce…another way,as tasty as you like,to discover local culture. Following very intensive English classes,reserve some of your free time in order to make the most out of the beaches and the countless nautical treasures to which the most beautiful sea in the world invites you. Dive into the Big Blue amidst the madrepores and multicoloured fish,bask in the sun at your leisure on the terraces of the large luxury hotels or on the teak deck of a handsome sailing boat. Then,extend your evenings by joining in the frenzied rhythm of Maltese parties. When the night falls,St. Julian's awakens. It’s best to be warned,you don’t come here to relax,nor for peace and quiet. In St. Julian's,partying takes precedent! Long gone are the hunting lodges of the Knights. Today,it is the restaurants,bars and trendy discos which set the tone. Here, it’s Paceville which unfolds its nightlife, carrying you through until dawn. The day breaks and, further on, in the small port of Spinola, the fishermen are already bustling about on their small multicoloured boats. A magical kingdom of pleasures that are constantly renewed, St. Julian's is waiting for you… Go for it!
