Island of Malta
Located just south of Sicily, Malta and its accompanying islands of Gozo and Comino offer up an unlimited number of cultural and natural treats. How about 7,000 years of history, including three World Heritage Sites, temples that outdate both the Pyramids and Stonehenge and magnificent medieval walled towns complete with Baroque cathedrals, winding back streets and enough nooks and crannies to keep you entertained for weeks?
When people say these islands are an open-air museum they aren’t lying. And then of course there is that famous coastline, which boasts some of the best diving sites in not only the Mediterranean but also the whole world. Think Caribbean style waters, lagoons and beachside caves just waiting to be explored.
