Months we visit: October, April

This tiny island has a great deal to offer. Famous throughout history as one of the most fought over pieces of land in the Mediterranean, Malta's turbulent past has seen it colonized by, among others, the Phoenicians, Romans, Moors, Normans, Knights of St John and the British (Malta finally gained independence from United Kingdom in 1964). All have this has left the island with much to tempt the modern day invader: from the grand palaces and majestic harbour of the capital Valetta to the tranquil beauty of the old town of Medina.
