For culture lovers, Malta offers a wonderful sample of 7000 years of history. The Phoenicians, the Knights of the Order of Malta and the British have left their mark on the island. Valletta, is a city full of stunning landmarks that will amaze you. You can also stroll through charming small towns, such as Mdina, the island's former capital. But Malta is also popular for many sporting activities, such as diving, and for enjoying a seaside vacation on the beaches along the northern coastline. But it is also an attractive destination for young people who like to party, especially in St. Julian's, known for its lively nightlife and trendy nightclubs.
Listed as a World Heritage Site, Valletta is one of Europe's smallest capitals, but has an exceptional density of over 300 monuments. The city is located on Malta's north-eastern coast on the Xiberras peninsula. It was founded in the mid-16th century and was named after the grand master of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem, John of Valletta, who supported the Maltese occupation against the Ottomans. Distance from the airport: 9 km.
The very modern appeal of the town of Sliema provides a vivid contrast with the cultural city of Valletta and its many historic monuments. The biggest city in Malta is an important centre for tourism, with several hotels, shops, restaurants, nightclubs and other points of interest. Most of its attractions are located on the Tower Road and Strand boulevards. Fort Manoël, Fort Tigne and Il Fortizza are interesting monuments not to be missed. Valletta can be reached by water taxi from the beach. Distance from the airport: 12 km.
Just next to Sliema lies St. Julian's Bay, a former fishing village that has become a popular resort with some of the most luxurious hotels on the island. It is also home to the famous Paceville district, the center of Maltese nightlife, with its wide range of restaurants serving Maltese and international cuisine, as well as its many bars and nightclubs. Distance from the airport: 11 km.
Located 18 km south of Valletta, Floriana is a small town set in the hills of Malta. It was built in the 17th century to strengthen the country's security and its name comes from the engineer who designed its fortifications. Despite its small size, it has nothing to envy to the capital: the city has beautiful gardens and enjoys a wonderful landscape. It is also famous for hosting the "Isle of MTV Malta" festival, which gathers world-famous artists every year. Distance from the airport: 10 km.
This place in the north-east of Malta was made famous by St Paul the Apostle, who first set foot on Maltese land after his boat sank on the way to Rome. Today, the bay of St Paul and the towns of Qawra and Bugibba are very lively places, with many cafés, bars and restaurants that are very popular with holidaymakers. Distance from the airport: 20 km.
The small town of Mellieha is surrounded by one of the most beautiful beaches in Malta. The beach, covered with fine sand and gently sloping, is ideal for families with children. The town is located in the quieter northern part of the island and is also just 1 km from the bay of the same name. Mellieha is also known for its troglodyte sanctuary, whose apse dates from the beginning of Christianity. Distance from the airport: 16 km.

This guided tour will take you through the lively streets to the gardens of Barracca from where there is an unobstructed view of the Grand Harbour. Then we will head towards St John’s Cathedral, which is adorned with riches dating from the period of the Knights of Malta. We will also visit the Grand Master’s Palace. Then you will be shown the "Malta Experience" slideshow that retraces the Maltese archipelago’s centuries of history.
This half-day excursion will take you to two of the most popular places on the south of the island: the picturesque village of Marsaxlokk and the Blue Grotto. Marsaxlokk is known for its Sunday market where fresh fish is sold. They are caught by fishermen in luzzus, the traditional colorful fishing boats. The Blue Grotto is part of a natural cave complex, accessible from a small boat. Here, the different arches and caves create a beautiful natural scenery with the sun reflecting in the sea that brings out its shimmering colors.
Visit the three cities of Senglea, Cospicua and Vittoriosa. Their historic centres retain the charm of the 1800s and are even older than the centre of Valletta. In Vittoriosa you will take a tour on a quintessential boat (Dghajsa), to discover the cities’ three small ports and admire the impressive walls of the fortress of Valletta. Full day.
The idea behind this popular jeep safari was to help you discover the most beautiful places on the island, off the beaten track. Avoiding the usual tourist areas, it’s a day full of beauty and adventure. The head of the expedition and safari travel specialist will be your guide throughout the trip and will show you some unusual places. The programme also includes a stop for bathing and a quintessential Maltese lunch, allowing you to sample local products.
A visit to Malta’s sister island. When you arrive on Gozo after a ferry journey of twenty minutes, you will realise that the island has a character of its own. Gozo is more mountainous and greener and its landscape is more charming as a result. In the course of the day you will visit the Temples of Ggantija, the Victoria Citadel, Xlendi Bay and the ‘Azure Window’ of Dwejra. You will also have free time for shopping – Gozo is famous for its knitwear and handcrafted lace. Lunch is included.
Board an impressive Turkish Gullet and set sail for the smaller island of Gozo where you will encounter the islands’ stunning cliffs and hidden coves along the way. At a secluded bay in Gozo the crew will drop anchor, allowing you to spend the remainder of the morning swimming and snorkelling in the Mediterranean or simply sunbathing on deck. After an energetic time in the water or relaxing hard in the sun you will be ready for something to eat: a delicious hot and cold buffet with unlimited drinks has been prepared for you by the onboard stewards. After lunch you will head for the even smaller island of Comino where you will have an opportunity for more swimming (or relaxing!) in the crystal clear waters of the famous Blue Lagoon. After this, you head back to Malta after an amazing day at sea.
