Jewel of the Mediterranean
A CAPITAL OF CULTURE
Malta has been fought over for thousands of years, has some of the clearest waters in the world, and boasts a capital city that is a baroque masterpiece. Her sister island of Gozo, on the other hand, has temples that pre-date the pyramids of Giza and even Stonehenge, as well as a laid-back culture of locals you'll definitely want to meet. Although small in size, the Maltese Islands offer travelers a rare opportunity to see a well-preserved history and exciting present-day culture.
