If you are a history buff or a military buff a visit to the Lascaria War Rooms in Valletta Malta is a must. It will give you a snapshot of the hardship the Maltese and the British endured during the WW2 fighting for Democracy. Try to have Stephan guide you around. His animated enthusiasm brings the story to life. You will just shake your head in disbelief at their determination to survive.

This is well worth a visit.
It's well run with a good atmosphere.
It is very engaging .for full effect try to enter through the long tunnel .
It takes about an hour with a guide or a hand held audio device. There is a film of Malta and the war which is on a loop and is worth sitting through

Stefan's free guided tour was a passionate and informative tale of Malta's role in WW2. Essential to go with the guide to get the most from your visit.

A wonderful visit through One of the most important places to the victory of the allies on the WWII.
