Floriana was originally constructed in the harbor near Valletta
, Malta's capital, to help the Maltese fortify against an anticipated attack from the Ottoman Turks. Over time, Floriana has developed into a town of its own, filled with a rich history for you to explore, like the St. Publius Church. The Portes des Bombes, built between 1697 and 1720, is another famous attraction. This decorative, baroque-style gate makes up the outer defensive walls of Valletta. If you are planning a trip to Floriana, don't stress about finding the right hotel. There are tons of hotels in Floriana to accommodate any type of traveler. From budget-conscious options like the Blue Sea Santa Maria Hotel to the more luxurious Hotel Phoenicia Malta, you are sure to find what you need.
