The most isolated archipelago in the Mediterranean: Malta, made up of 7 small islands, the most famous ones of Gozo and Comino are inhabited, while the others can be visited during the day.
Malta obtained its independence only in 1964 from the English, you can still drive on the left!
You won't need very long holidays, because in a week you will be able to visit most of this wonderful land. Just think that Valletta is the smallest capital of Europe.
A curiosity: two clocks have been placed on the Churches of Malta, but only one shows the right time: the second is used to confuse the devil, allowing you to get to the end of religious services without "disturbing".
Also from the gastronomic point of view Malta is full of curiosities to taste, such as pastizzi, puff pastry with ricotta cheese or mashed peas inside, or the hobz biz-zej, bread with olive oil, rubbed with cherry tomatoes, stuffed with capers, onion, tuna and garlic, a delicacy!
Those who love fish will be satisfied with Lampuki Pie (fish cake) or Aljotta (fish soup).
The best place to stock up on fresh fish is the Marsaxlokk market, held on Sunday mornings.
Speaking of fishermen, another Maltese curiosity: the typical local boats called Iuzzus are very colourful and on each side you can see the design of the eye of Osiris, to protect the fishermen and keep the evil eye away.
At the end of a meal or for a snack, enjoy the Kannoli of Sicilian influence and a taste of Ħelwa tat-Tork a crunchy almond crushed cake.
It is well known that the best wine producers in Europe are Italy, France, Germany and Spain, but do not underestimate Malta, because if you take part in a visit to the various wineries on the island you will be surprised by the variety and genuine taste of its grapes.
A small archipelago to discover is waiting for you. What are you waiting for? Look for your flight to Malta and organize your next holiday!
