      After we will walk to the upper Barrakka Garden which enjoys a spectacular view of the Grand Harbour, which was a British military base and the main reason why Malta came under fire as soon as Mussolini declared war on the Allied forces. A walk around the streets of Valletta will take us by the Palace which was used by Napoleon Bonaparte, the second world war Victory (soup) kitchen, Queen Victoria's statue, and the ruins of the Royal Opera House which was destroyed at the peak of the bombings in Malta. After some free time, we will walk to the lower level of Valletta to the Malta War Museum. The museum itself is situated at Fort St. Elmo, an original defensive system built by the Knights.
