The Auberge D’Italie in Valletta is the historic seat of the Italian knights of the Order of St John with a 500-year old history and is in itself a prime historic site, meticulously restored to expose historic layers. Main historic features such as the main staircase have been rebuilt in contemporary material. The reception will be held in the main courtyard to discover the beauty of the building and explore the culinary experience. The Mediterranean Courtyard is the ideal open space to unwind and experience the historic fabric of the building itself. This is the MUŻA agora or public space with a prominent arch crowning a well at the centre of the courtyard.
