Malta highlights: atmospheric, welcoming, ancient
Amazing weather and photogenic beaches aside, Malta has a rich culture, drawing on its eclectic history. Arabian, Sicilian, French and British influences combine and conspire to draw you back again and again.
Home to prehistoric sites such as the famous Hal Saflieni Hypogeum – an underground necropolis reported to date back 5,000 years, Malta’s more recent history is fascinating too.
On your Malta cruise, we’ll take you to the capital, Valletta. Visit the popular Café Pregor with its original 1950s furniture and the Lascaris War Rooms, a warren of secret tunnels and chambers, integral to WW2 operations. Or take a guided tour of Casa Rocca Piccola, the museum home of the Marquis de Piro, where your guide is the Marquis himself!
And when you fancy a pit stop, sit back with a rich coffee, refreshing aperitif, or some tasty Maltese cuisine at one of the many cafes, hotels, restaurants and bars.
