Still used as an open air theatre during the warmer months this amazing opera house was once intact however war destroyed it. It is lit up well at night and the columns that still exist are majestic.

Tricky, we couldn`t find out anything before we got to Valletta and you can only buy tickets online or at the ticket office 60 mins before the performance.
