If you’ve been dreaming of a marvellous Maltese getaway then you are in luck as we are giving you the opportunity to win a stay at the five-star hotel Rosselli (part of AX Hotels), in the country’s capital of Valletta. In addition to this the lucky winner will be treated to a private half-day walking tour of the walled city, which boasts a wealth of history, cultivated since its 16th century origins.
Designed to be a fortress for the Knights of the Order of St. John, the city is built on a peninsula between harbours and one landside entrance, recently re-imagined by acclaimed Italian architect Renzo Piano. Designed by renowned fortifications architect Francesco Laparelli da Cortona, the city is a testament to the grandeur, nobility and glory of the Knights who had held the Ottoman Empire from conquering Malta in the Great Siege.
Today, Valletta is a thriving city as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its historic buildings and palazzos house both government offices and private businesses, and bars and restaurants have sprouted in small niches in between, making its streets quirky and full of life.
As well as the famous St John’s Co-Cathedral, which boasts works of art by Caravaggio, and several other historic sites, together with your private guide you will walk around the bustling streets replete with interesting treasures from the past. Arranged by Virtuoso accredited agency, P&A Sullivan, you will also stop at traditional artisan food shops, an old spice shop where you will be given the chance to taste locally made products and your final stop will be at the famous Café Cordina – another famous coffee shop loved by locals and foreigners alike.
Rosselli is privileged to be located in the heart of Malta’s capital city. Situated on the lower end of Merchants Street, the stately hotel is conveniently located whether one prefers to stroll the calmer stepped streets of Valletta, down to Fort St Elmo and the harbour with its glorious views or walk up to the busier end of the peninsula to be at the centre of business and urbanity, shops and eateries.
The luxurious hotel is a meticulously restored 17th-century palazzo, blending the original baroque features with new contemporary touches. Rosselli features 25 designer rooms, centred around space and comfort whilst exuding luxurious touchpoints from Valletta’s rich cultural past.
Exceptional service ties each of the facilities together for an experience exceeding all others within the city. From the elegant rooftop bar, lounge and Under-Grain, a one-star Michelin restaurant, inspired by the heritage of the building, encouraging those who step inside to leave the stresses of daily life behind and to indulge among the seamless pleasures available.
