The Republic of Malta consists of Malta, Gozo, Comino and two small-uninhabited islands, and is situated in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea. In Malta, you’ll explore 7000 years of history yet live passionately in the present. You’ll span the millennia with an astonishing array of things to discover. And wherever you go, the Islands’ scenery and architecture provide a spectacular backdrop.
The colours are striking. Honey-coloured stone against the deepest of Mediterranean blues. The Maltese Islands have been described as one big open-air museum. What makes them unique is that so much of their past is visible today. Delve into the Islands’ mysterious prehistory, retrace the footsteps of St Paul or see where the Knights of St John defended Christendom.
But Malta is no regular museum. Here life is lived to the full, so make time for some living history and action. Visit locations where Oscar-winning blockbusters were filmed or go off the beaten track into ancient villages. Marvel at the fireworks and revelry of the summertime fiestas and enjoy a packed calendar of events all year round. Malta has a very sunny climate with an average of 5 – 6 hours of sunshine a day in midwinter and over 12 hours a day in mid-summer.
