An historical island, Malta
An historical island, Malta. Everywhere you go, a unique historic sight awaits.
Favorable climate, magnificent beaches, majestic churches and century-old culture – Malta offers plenty of ways to enjoy yourself. Its three islands are so different that you could easily find entertainment.
The smallest island is Comino – an idyllic place, banned for cars, with one single hotel. Gozo is the second biggest island where a significant part of the Game of Thrones episodes were filmed. The main island of Malta is home to the capital Valletta.
Temples, palaces, cathedrals, and forts provide a living history you can almost touch. Sound plays an important part in the life of the Islands. The mix of fireworks and village band marches transforms a summer night into a special memory. The advantage of a stay on the Maltese Islands is that you can experience several holidays in one.
With 7,000 years of history, the Maltese Islands are steeped in culture and heritage. The arts have always played a large role in Maltese culture and continue to do so with cultural events occurring frequently.
Maltese cuisine is the result of a long relationship between the Islanders and the many civilisations who occupied the Maltese Islands over the centuries. This marriage of tastes has given Malta an eclectic mix of Mediterranean cooking. Although the restaurant scene is a mix of speciality restaurants, there are many eateries that offer or specialise in local fare, serving their own versions of specialities.
Malta was a British colony for over 160 years, This historical legacy explains why English is one of the two official languages spoken in Malta. This, together with an excellent climate and the option to turn learning into a holiday, make Malta an ideal place for studying English.
You'll have two holidays in one: language learning and a Mediterranean experience. Here, you'll find that warm, southern hospitality blends perfectly with Anglo-Saxon traditions to create a charm unique to these Islands.
To experience all this, you won't have to travel far. Just a few hours flying time away from most European cities, the Islands are serviced by direct scheduled flights operated by the national carrier Air Malta, international airlines and various low-cost carriers.
