    There are a couple of United States Naval ships due in on Sunday. The USS Arlington (LPD 24) is a San Antonio Class amphibious transport dock, and the USNS Mohawk (T-ATF-170) a Powhatan-class fleet ocean tug.

    Happy New Year to one and all
    The cameras are great ...but the amount of off line cameras is at its worst for many years
    The Cameras on The British Hotel both of them
    The entrance to the harbour
    St George’s Sq
    Triton Sq
    The Harbour view towards the Memorial Bell
    You used to be able to follow ships right from the entrance of the harbour to their berth
    Let’s hope we can get back to the previous extensive coverage

Grand Harbour - Valletta

The stunning Maltese capital of Valletta (Il-Belt Valletta), gem of Mediterranean and one of the most beautiful Baroque jewels of the world, was considered one of UNESCO’s World Heritage sites in Malta for its extraordinary heritage conservation.

A visit to Valletta is a real trip to the past, exactly when the Knights of St. John (later Knights of Malta) started its construction in 1566 on the rocky Mount Sciberras under Grandmaster Jean Parisot de la Valette who founded this fortress city that bears his name; thanks to their fortifications and massive bastions the knights won the bloody siege of 1565, part of this architectural treasure had fortunately survived World War II and natural disasters, today it is the main tourist attraction of a city with a large concentration of historic areas and magnificent views. As a charming open-air museum, Valletta is rich in ancient masterpieces that can be experienced while enjoying simultaneously the rhythm of a modern life, among its chaotic attractions, one of the safest and largest natural harbours in Europe, Grand Harbour (Il-Port il-Kbir), a great economic development opportunity; thanks to its very favourable position in the heart of Mediterranean, it originally represented an ideal place of refuge with waters deep enough to anchor, firstly occupied by Phoenicians who landed here, and later unsuccessfully controlled by Napoleon, under the British Military was massively fortified and improved with dockyard facilities, a wider entrance, harbour amenities and a greater anchorage partially destroyed during the world wars; completely restored, the multi-purpose Grand Harbour is today the center of the maritime activity of the whole island, a prestigious landmark of Malta and the premier destination for yachts, superyachts and cruise ships coming from all over the world.

Grand Harbour offers spectacular panoramic views as surrounded by a quantity of stunning inlets and ancient treasures such as Fort Saint Elmo (Il-Forti Sant Iermu), Fort Ricasoli (Forti Rikazoli), the picturesque village of Kalkara (Il-Kalkara), the fortified Three Cities of Vittoriosa (Birgu), Cospicua (Bormla) and Senglea (L-Isla) and not so far the stunning Barakka Gardens (Il-Barrakka ta' Fuq); it welcomes million cruise passengers every year and give them at their arrival a first glimpse of a very versatile center known as Valletta Waterfront; as a multi-purpose area, it is a real landmark, one of the most frequented meeting points of Valletta, a high quality entertainment destination become increasingly popular for tourists and locals, a complete mix of retail, dining, leisure experiences and shopping along the water's edge where also festivities and outdoor themed events take place all year round. Originally a simple pier and a place where merchants used to unload their wares, this wonderful Baroque masterpiece was built by the Knights of St. John's Grand Master Manuel Pinto de Fonseca in the 18th century, over the years it was fortunately renovated and today is moreover a famous cruise and ferry terminal also providing efficient and affordable transport services within the Grand Harbour and neighbouring areas; Valletta Waterfront is certainly worth a visit, a simple stroll along the promenade either day or night with a view on its panoramic beauties we'll be a marvelous experience.
