Step back in time on the beautiful Island of Malta, where historic cultural influences of rulers including the Romans, The Moors, The Knights of Saint John, the French and The British are evident in every town and city you visit.
A small group of islands in the central Mediterranean, south of Sicilly, Malta has played an important role in the development of the region, providing host to the emerging European powers and ancient cultures of Africa and the Middle East.
The capital city of Valletta, nicknamed 'Proudest', is indeed a proud and imposing city, with it's walled fortifications and Grand Harbour dating back to the 1500's when founded by French nobleman Jean De Valletta. Valletta was deservedly honoured as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980.
A visit to Gozo is a must when visiting Malta, a small island in the North West Gozo is rich in history and is diverse in it's character with both ancient and modern influences running through it's DNA.
Gozo boasts many beautiful churches, beaches, island coves and wonderful restaurants serving the fresh daily catch and is considered to be one of the best diving destinations in the Mediterranean due to it's vast array of sea life and crystal clear azure waters.
A seaside resort on the east of the island, Sliema is a magnet for tourists and travellers alike who wish to sample the historical importance the island has to offer. Along with a vast array of restaurants, bars, cafés and shops Sliema offers everything to keep your taste for Maltese culture sharp.
A once quiet fishing village Sliema has emerged as one of the favourite places for locals to meet in the summer season, gathering on the large coastline promenade, known as the Sliema Front, to mingle, walk, jog or discuss plans for a wonderful evening in the hub of social nightlife.
With wonderful beaches, open air restaurants, water sports and moonlit views across the harbour, Sliema is everything and more on your Maltese adventure.
