Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso’s Cave - Malta is positively mythic. The narrow cobblestone streets of its towns are crowded with Renaissance cathedrals and Baroque palaces. The neighbouring island of Gozo has a distinct character all of its own. Here, the colourful countryside is prettier, the pace is slower and there are fewer tourists. One of the joys of these two islands is that, no matter where you are, you’re never far from one of the many beaches or secluded little coves.
