Malta is an island unlike no other. At the beating heart of the Mediterranean, it has an eclectic mix of influences passed down through millennia - from the Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Sicilians to the French British and even the Knights of St. John. These influences have left an indelible mark on Malta, its language, culture and customs. Very few places have such a unique charm as this ancient island nation...
With a unique language (with significant North African and Arabic influences), cuisine from Sicily and all sorts of historical quirks passed on from the varied inhabitants of this island, few European countries have such concentrated history, architecture and of course beaches in such a small area.
