The Maltese Archipelago, made up of five islands – Malta, Gozo, and Comino – and two uninhabited islets are situated in the centre of the Mediterranean Sea, half way between Gibraltar and Alexandria, 95km from the Italian island of Sicily and 288k from Tunisia. Malta is probably unique in that no other place of its size offers such an astonishing concentration of cultural and historical attractions including prehistorical temples, archaeological sites, museums, cultural monuments, palaces and other treasures spanning the entire history of mankind.
The prehistoric temples are older than Stonehenge and the Pyramids by over a thousand years. All these sites present a living testimony to 7000 years of civilisation.
The Maltese people are known worldwide for their friendly nature and generosity and welcome visitors with open arms with an eagerness to proudly show them the treasures of their beloved islands.
