Lying in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, Malta is inhabited by about 460.000 people, concentrated mainly in the capital Valletta, where it is possible to do everything from boat trips to the lively nightlife and family fun. The best way to reach your destination on this beautiful and fascinating island is to use a taxi service from Malta airport.
The Republic of Malta is an archipelago of three islands, but only the two main islands are inhabited: Malta and Gozo. Both islands are very popular with tourists all year round, thanks to a mild climate and to 3000 hours of sunshine a year, and not to mention the cultural heritage thanks to its 7000 years of history. In addition, the island is the ideal place to learn English (spoken alongside with Maltese), without having to go to English and American colleges.
What to see in Malta
Thanks to the immense cultural heritage, a holiday in this archipelago is not only for fun and the beaches, but it also has very interesting museums, palaces, and churches. Shopping is good with large centers being Valletta, St. Julian's, and Mosta.
Among the many attractions we recommend are the following:
- St. James Centre for Creativity: a fortification in which contemporary artworks are exhibited.
- The Grandmaster’s Palace: built in the 16th century and currently the seat of the Maltese Parliament.
- M'dina: ancient capital of the island, with an historic center that dates back over 4000 years.
