JOIN US ON A HOLIDAY TO MALTA
Head to this historic archipelago, set in some of the Mediterranean’s bluest waters and feel the warm welcome of the friendly islanders while you take in the relaxed Mediterranean air.
Seeringly hot in summer – Malta and its sister isles are at their most pleasant throughout the rest of the year. Wintertime is an equably shirt-sleeves-and-shorts-by-day-and-sweaters-by-evening delight, so you can escape the cold too and holiday in Malta during the festive season.
Packed with remarkable prehistoric sites, Malta is also perfect for a little exploration. Venture south-east to historic capital Valletta, set above one of the world’s most striking natural anchorages and the Grand Harbour. Stroll through the city and take in the awe-inspiring St John’s Co-Cathedral, the largest and most impressive of the islands ‘staggering 300-plus churches. Take in some of the best views across Malta from Upper the Barrakka Gardens.
For history buffs, journey across the vast harbour to the historic Three Cities of Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea, for a fascinating look into Malta’s turbulent past. Cross the strait to Gozo and discover mysterious temples, museums and palaces. Don’t miss the island’s other legendary site of Calypso’s Cave.
Malta isn’t all ancient monuments and churches, you’ll find some of the Mediterranean’s most modern shopping malls, swankiest spas, and a whole host of restaurants, bars and cafés. Add in the fascination of inland sights such as ‘Silent City’ Mdina, Mosta with its own monumental, ‘miracle’, church, the colourful fishing port of Marsaxlokk, and Gozo’s countless coves and tiny coastal villages, and you have a perfect holiday destination.
Our escorted tours to Malta combine the best of the island with the chance to enjoy the charms of a highly favoured holiday haven.
