Discover Malta, a civilization 7,000 years in the making…

Situated at the center of the Mediterranean, just 58 miles south of Sicily, Malta is one of the smallest countries in the world but is packed with pleasures easily accessible to its visitors, including: ancient towns and archaeological sites; expansive beaches and spectacular scenic vistas; award-winning diving experiences, and many more adventures.

Malta boasts a thriving nightlife, culinary delights, and for the culturally inclined, 7,000 years of history. It is home to a remarkable concentration of intact heritage buildings, including the highest density of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in any nation-state.

Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso's Cave – The Maltese Islands are positively mythic. The narrow meandering streets of their towns and villages lead to main squares that are invariably dominated by a huge baroque church. As the countryside is dotted with medieval towers, wayside chapels and the oldest known human structures in the world, the Islands have rightly been described as an open-air museum.
