Things to do here

The attractions of Malta lie in its superb weather and the sparkling Mediterranean sea that surrounds the individual islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino. The islands’ rich history, most evident in the 16th century splendour of the capital Valletta, a UNESCO world Heritage site, is also a major draw for visitors.

  2. Arzella - A family-owned restaurant located in the resort town of Marsalforn, where many Maltese go to spend the summer months, on the island of Gozo. It is known for its seafood dishes.
