Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso's Cave - Malta is positively mythic. The narrow cobblestone streets of its towns are crowded with Renaissance cathedrals and baroque palaces. The countryside is littered with the oldest known human structures in the world.
In recent history Malta has been regarded as an inexpensive destination for a packaged beach holiday - and why not, when the weather is sunny and hot for most of the year and the sea is clear and warm; accommodation is good value (especially in the low season); there's an abundance of high-quality, reasonably priced restaurants and decent nightlife in resort areas.

SUGGESTED ITINERARIES: MALTA
On his tour through the Mediterranean, Sir Walter Scott called Valletta 'the city built by gentlemen for gentlemen'. Today it's a beautifully preserved walled city, small enough to cover in a few hours without breaking out into too much of a Mediterranean sweat.
Valletta is a rough rectangle at the tip of a peninsula on Malta's northeast coast. From the City Gate at the southwest edge of Valletta, you can walk to the centre of town through a series of squares surrounded by palaces and cathedrals.
