The shortest route to Malta
Imagine travelling straight to the heart of one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, on a direct Nice-Valletta flight. We’re not exaggerating. The old headquarters the Knights of the Order of Malta is very different from any large western city. Nevertheless, the capital of Malta has assets that make it just as special. There is barely a stone in the city that is not loaded with history. In fact, there are over 300 different monuments there. That means a Nice-Valletta flight allows you to discover an extraordinarily rich city, and a World Heritage Site.
