14 Couple Eating on St. Lucia Street in Valletta, Malta

Many of Malta’s towns have narrow and winding streets flanked by connected buildings. This layout was important for defense but also provides a breeze and a shadowed respite from the summer heat. However, when Valletta was planned in the 16th century, it followed a rectangular grid with wider roads. You can still find narrow terraced streets like St. Lucia that offer a romantic spot to take a break. One word of caution when navigating the city’s steps: the risers are taller than normal because they were designed to accommodate knights in heavy armor. In the background is St. Lucy, a Roman Catholic church built in 1570.
