What photo takes you right back to Malta?
There were so many historic highlights of our trip to Malta, but our morning of touring the northern coast of Gozo on Segways was so much fun that we’ll always remember it!
Summarise Malta in three words.
- Historic – From the oldest structures built by man, to the fortifications and cathedrals built by the Knights Hospitaller, and its pivotal role during World War II, there’s so much interesting history to explore
- Limestone – The main building material of the islands gives the villages and towns a uniform sandy colour with Gozo having a slightly rosier tint. Venturing into the countryside we saw quarries with huge slices cut out of the land
- Fortress – The Knights Hospitaller, or Order of St John were the ones who really started fortifying these islands with high walls and watchtowers that exist to this day
You really know you’re in Malta when…
… you can see the Mediterranean Sea no matter where you are, and in a few higher places on the islands it’s possible to see the sea in all directions!
What one item should you definitely pack when going to Malta?
A torch for when you visit all of the underground caves, catacombs, and wartime bunkers
