Our evaluation by month
Malta, a point in the Mediterranean located off the coast of Sicily and facing Africa, is a very small archipelago made up of three main islands, Malta, Gozo and Comino. Its history, which has witnessed a continuous succession of different peoples, Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans and Arabs, continues to create an inseparable link with the present day. The past can be found in every corner, in the narrow streets of the capital Valletta and in the walls surrounding the city, in the co-cathedral of San Giovanni that was born as a stronghold of the knights of Malta and especially in the silent city of Mdina, the ancient capital surrounded by high walls, or in the ancient Rabat.
