Malta is a small archipelago in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea.
A gate on so many navigation routes, Malta has been visited, conquered and loved by many.
Its geographic position is the reason for the rich combination of architecture, museums and tumultuous history.
Its location is also responsible for stunning views, turquoise waters and exquisite diving sites. Using English as their national language and the British road system, Malta offers Baroque architecture, prehistoric temples, Italian fine arts and cuisine. If you like sun, sea and history, Malta is the perfect holiday destination for you.
The capital of Malta is Valetta. Small, but impressive, the city seems built from sand. Bright and full of wonders, offering bus tours and boat tours, Valetta is humming with curious tourists. The city was built in the 16th Century by the Roman Catholic Knights of St. John. It has more palaces, churches and Baroque buildings than you can visit in several days. When it comes to museums, Valetta took all the glory of the sea and put it in the National Museum of Archaeology. A Rococo style palace hosts the National Museum of Fine Arts. Add the Grand Harbour with thousands of yachts and boats and the terraced Barrakka Gardens to give you the perfect perspective.
Rocky coast and limestone cliffs make Malta a paradise for avid photographers.
The climate is warm and very hot during summers. Sunny days are not a problem here. Visit Gozo Island, which is believed to be Calypso’s island from Homer’s Odyssey. With amazing coastline and gorgeous landscape, Gozo has many forts and historical sites to explore. It is known for its serenity and mystical air.
If you are a fan of watersports, you are more than welcome in Malta. Here, you’ll find snorkeling, diving, swimming, yachting and many other water based activities. Go to the small Comino Island to swim in the Blue Lagoon, the most turquoise waters you will have ever seen. There are no cars and no noise – just natural pools, white yachts and happy faces.
You can travel to Malta by plane, but when on the islands, try the bus system. They are efficient and cheap, precise and ready to take you everywhere you want. Cruises are on offer every day. Buses can pick you up from the hotel and take you to your cruise boat.
