The Three Cities on Malta’s Grand Harbour conjures up enchanting, historical images of Malta’s grand past and are pieces of living history kept alive by hundreds of years of preservation, and the occasional miracle. Today the properties that can be found here are a mix of old and new, some waiting to be renovated and modernised and some already equipped with all the modern day conveniences that sophisticated world travellers and investors have come to expect.

The fortified cities sit like a trio of villages in the heart of Malta’s historic centre, directly across the Grand Harbour from Valletta. In the past few years the regeneration of the area covered by the Three Cities namely Senglea, Vittoriosa, and Cospicua has been nothing short of remarkable due to investment from the EU. Inhabited by the older generation and forgotten for many years, the interest sparked in the Three Cities and the potential to buy a property and turn a profit, have seen investors and home buyers clamour for apartments, townhouses  and even palazzos.

Many of these older properties have since been converted into profitable to-let properties such as Air BnB’s and boutique hotels while others are bought as a lock-up and go holiday homes. Digital nomads and other global remote professionals have been buying up many of the properties here. The Three Cities is regarded as a destination that has it all: location, convenience, scenic beauty, proximity to the capital Valletta and most of all, an abundance of history.

If you are wanting to live in an urban chic environment look no further than the three cities.It is trendy and arty with residents that work in the fields of art, design, AI and information and technology. Mix modern living with the old authentic Maltese inhabitants, who still call the Three Cities home, you have a wonderful melting pot of true international living

The area is awash with small, narrow streets, religious niches on the side of buildings, statues and churches, plaques and of course legendary festas. Annual highlights are the Birgu Festival of Lights in October, the Maritime Festival in September and if you are lucky and find yourself in the Three Cities on the 7th of June, you can witness the spectacle of fireworks celebrating Sette Giugno over the Grand Harbour and Valletta.
