An ancient destination

Malta, Gozo and Comino have been attracting visitors for over seven thousand years, the first inhabitants leaving structures that are older than the pyramids. 

The Maltese islands had a succession of civilizations throughout history, including the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, the Knights of St. John, the French and the British. They all left their mark on the islands in their fortifications and churches.

A Mediterranean marvel

It’s the combination of sun-drenched golden landscapes, turquoise waters and the many cultures that make Malta, Gozo and Comino the ideal destination for a Mediterranean break. 

Whether it’s exploring the beautiful streets of Valletta or Mdina and Rabat, or diving among shipwrecks in crystal clear waters, there’s always something to dazzle the senses. 

For those who love the beach, there’s one for every preference, as well as clear blue seas to swim, sail, paddle or jet-ski in.

Culture lovers can spend hours exploring the six-thousand-year-old Ħal Saflieni Hypogeum, or one of the many churches, full of art spanning the centuries.
