Valletta, Malta's economic and cultural capital, boasts a thriving restaurant scene today. Over the course of a gastronomic stay within the city's walls, you can taste cuisine that showcases the best of home-grown specialties while adopting the influences of major European cuisines. Further proof that the sector is on the up is the selection of the MICHELIN Guide, which has singled out a number of great restaurants in the city and around.
Malta is certainly one of the smallest wine-producing countries in the world. With 800 hectares of vineyards at the very most and wines rarely exported outside the archipelago, its production is a source of intrigue.

Nestled in a bay of the deep Trondheimsfjord, where it meets the Nidelva, Trondheim is Norway's third largest city and one of its oldest. It developed around its famous cathedral and has always played a vital part in the country's cultural and spiritual life.
