  • Valetta – Described by UNESCO’s World Heritage website as “one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world”, Valletta is Malta’s capital city squeezed in less than one square kilometre of space. From the rich St. John’s Co-Cathedral, to the pristine 300 year old Manoel Theatre, restaurants, arts, monuments, traditional balconies, shops and malls, museums, forts and bastions, flea markets… Valletta has got it all.

  • Gozo – Gozo is a smaller rural island to the north of Malta just a half-hour ferry ride away. It is a vivid glimpse into what Malta was up to a few decades ago. A slower pace of life, welcoming locals, open countryside, raw rugged coastlines, sleepy unconverted villages and traditional crafts. Gozo’s must-see attractions include the Citadella, Ggantija Temples, ta’ Pinu Sanctuary and the Dwejra area.

  • Comino and the Blue Lagoon – Comino is a miniscule island half way between Malta and Gozo. In an area of just over a square mile, it packs a day’s pleasurable walk complete with a charming little chapel, picturesque castle and dramatic cliffs, a four star hotel with self catering apartments and the incredible Blue Lagoon. The latter’s turquoise waters must be the best spot for swimming and snorkelling anywhere in the Mediterranean.

  • Mdina – Mdina is Malta’s medieval jewel. It’s distinctive narrow winding streets sheltered by imposing walls of nobles houses are simply beautiful and suggestive to stroll in. Hardly any signs of modern development are noticeable and the lamp-lit evenings are surreal. A number of attractions related to its history are well worth visiting and you also get the best views of Malta from here.
