Destination - Malta
Concentrated into seven tiny islands in the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, the Maltese archipelago boasts a rich tapestry of archaeological and cultural treasures. With some of the oldest prehistoric structures in the world (3,600 - 3,000 BC) and a cultural legacy that includes the Sicilians, Phoenicians, Romans and more recently the British, it is little wonder that the ever-hospitable Malta is referred to as the Island of Sunshine and History.
Dazzling beaches and a warm climate make this is a perfect holiday destination for any age group. Whether on the main island, or on its quiet and beautiful sister island of Gozo, a love of good food and an appreciation of art, together with the regular celebrations or festas that add colour and vibrancy, make Malta a uniquely friendly country.
