Malta is very diverse. The history is still evident today and dates back as far as the Neolithic period. Many temples are scattered around the island and “Ggantija” is said to be one of the oldest surviving, free-standing monuments in the world, predating Stonehenge by around 1,000 years! Thanks to their strategic position in the Med, the Maltese islands have played a crucial role in the making of history too, including the wars between Rome and Carthage, the Second World War and the Cold War, but it was perhaps the period of the Crusades which left the biggest impression. When the Knights Hospitaller of St John were driven out of Rhodes and handed Malta by Charles V, they bequeathed palaces, forts, cathedrals, an abundance of art and, of course, the Maltese Cross. Malta is also a very exciting destination. You can enjoy boat rentals and plenty of beach activities. If you’re a movie buff “The Da Vinci Code” and “Troy” with Brad Pitt along with many others were filmed here. You can take a full day tour of the sets for the series “Game of Thrones”.
