Malta by Prestige Holidays

The island is not large, 17 miles by nine, so you are never from the sea. Malta was a British Colony for over 160 years until independence in 1964. English is spoken almost everywhere and the hospitality to visitors from the 'old country' is both warm and genuine.

History abounds in Malta from Roman catacombs to the relatively recent Grand Harbour, originally fortified by the Knights of St John.

Car hire is inexpensive and the Maltese claim to drive on the left! However. Bus services are excellent and very cheap.
