Steeped in History

The Maltese Islands, consisting of Gozo, Malta, and uninhabited Comino, known for its blue lagoons, have a panoply of historic sites, rocky and sandy beaches, and diving hotspots. On arrival in Italy, many tourists take a ferry to reach the shores of these compact islands dotting the Mediterranean Sea. Others hop off of a luxury cruise to see the sights in a day. Almost all the major sights are served by efficient and economical public buses. There are three worthy UNESCO World Heritage Sites that reveal the world of our ancestors -- the Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni, the Megalithic Temples, and Valletta, the capital city, which houses 320 monuments. Amble through Comino and Gozo to enjoy gorgeous Mediterranean views in solitude. The spectacular seascape with crystal-clear water makes it a highly photogenic diving destination. The most pleasant diving sites are the HMS Maori, Irqieqa Point, and the St. Marija Caves. Let your hair down in inexpensive bars and clubs in St. Julians, Mellieha, Bugibba, and Marsascala.

  • He vivido en Malta un año y la verdad es que no defrauda. Si eres amante de la naturaleza et encantara su escarpada cossta, sus aguas azules y sus fondos marinos. En primavera esta tapizada de verde y es espectacular. ME gusta mas la isla de Gozo pero todo el pais esta salpicado de maravillas naturales.Aqui teneis una guia con fotos de lo que merece la pena ver, echadle un ojo!

  • If you are planning to spend some time on the islands and do some real sightseeing, _The mAZe: Street Atlas, Malta and Gozo_ in indispensable. The publisher is Uptrend Publishing in Birkirkara, Malta.

  • I have spent two summers in Malta and I have to say I am a bit in love, both with the Maltese people and the country itself. Even if Malta isn't very "turist friendly" in many perspectives, there are still things to see and do here. Try the lovely Maltese octupus stews, the great pasta dishes and drink loads of the local beer Cesk.
