The Island of Malta region
The Mediterranean's best kept holiday secret has made a comeback in recent years and is once more a favourite holiday destination offering a blend of cosmopolitan and traditional backed by a wealth of cultural heritage that makes the Maltese archipelago appear so much larger then its actual size.
Sea, sun, excellent restaurants, trendy shops and the unmistakable Maltese hospitality are a constant attraction.
Visit during the summer months if you enjoy the merry making of village fiestas ( a different one every week starting June ) or during the winter months for a more relaxed tempo. Winters in Malta are very mild and the countryside abounds with colourful wild flowers.
Visit www.visitmalta.com for an excellent informative web site.
Up till a few years ago Valletta was off the beaten track or even shunned by most visitors who came simply to soak up the sun. Discerning travelers have however discovered the beauty and charm of this UNESCO world heritage sight - so much history condensed in a peninsula barely 5 square kilometers. A city which has seen kings, emperors, poets and painters, come and go as it stands aloof on a hill enclosed within its fortifications.
What is there to see - magnificent St John's Cathedral and Museum with the largest painting Caravaggio ever painted, the Manoel theater, Europe's oldest functioning theater, the Grand Masters' Palace and armory - the list is never ending.
Valletta is also the hub and interconnection point for all buses be it to the Medieval capital Medina, Malta's beaches or Sliema and St Julians if you enjoy night-life. Getting around the island could not be easier and you certainly do not need car hire if you elect to spend your holidays in Malta's Capital city. Sliema can also be reached by a 10 min ferry service.
Pavement cafe's along Republic street, a favourite promenading street for the Maltese with its trendy shops, breathtaking views from the Baracca Gardens, gourmet restaurants - you will need good walking shoes.
