Explore the architectural elegance of this archipelago

 

Malta is located in the central Mediterranean between Sicily and the North African coast. The country is a combination of islands, which creates a great place for sea, sun, and plenty of culture and attractions. The country is so picturesque, that it has been used as the set for Gladiator, Troy and King’s Landing in Game of Thrones.

Rubinsohn Travel has you covered with the best spots to explore while in Malta.

Valletta

 Valetta is the capital of Malta. Although the city is very small, there is plenty to see. You can enter Valetta by walking through the famous City Gate, designed by Renzo Piano. Once in the city, the visitors can visit the newly finished Parliament Building, which is designed to look like two massive volumes of stone, suspended in the air. Right by the entrance to Valetta, tourists can spot the beautiful Royal Opera House, which has been brought back to life in 2013, after being damaged during the World War II. The outskirts of Valetta are worth visiting as well, especially Hal Saflieni Hypogeum.

Blue Lagoon

 This slice of paradise is located in the smallest inhabited island- Comino. It has become one of the most popular spots to visit, due to the turquoise, shallow waters, golden rocks, and stunning coastline. Blue Lagoon offers top-notch swimming and snorkeling. This beach is a must-see for everyone visiting Malta!

Vittoriosa

Similar to every other city in Malta, Vittoriosa is not a massive landscape, so you can take your time exploring. Just walking through the city is extravagant, as it’s filled with stunning views. Fort St Angelo, on the tip of Vittoriosa’s peninsula, has been recently restored and is now open to public. Fort St Angelo now serves as a historical museum, and the building spreads across the water, creating a beautiful site. At night, the museum is nicely lit up, which makes a scenic reflection on the water.

Gozo Island

 This beautiful island is filled with landscapes, quiet towns, and pristine beaches. It is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing vacation. For those interested in history, the island has a medieval city – Victoria, occupied by several different museums and basilicas. Ggantija-temples date back to 3500 BC with loads of interesting history. For those interested more in visiting the beaches, one of the favorite spots in Gozo Island is the Ramala Bay. The beach has wide, sandy shores and gentle waters that are safe for swimming. This island is easily accessible from the Island of Malta by a ferry.
