Trips to Malta

Malta travel

Malta may be the tiniest nation in the European Union, but it packs a mean punch when it comes to attractions and landmarks. Very few countries can boast such a high density of points of interest like Malta can; it has an extremely rich - albeit turbulent - history from the Neolithic period to the time it gained independence. It is this long and vivid history that makes up modern day Malta. Known for its beautiful beaches, fantastic climate, ancient monuments and temples, visitors on flights to Malta will not be disappointed at the range of activities that await them.
