This holiday will take you all across the Maltese Islands and their surrounding waters, as well as a one-day trip to Sicily and its main attractions. Megaliths, medieval dungeons and Calypso's Cave, the Maltese Islands are absolutely magical. The narrow meandering streets of their towns and villages lead to the main square, which is invariably dominated by the huge baroque church. As the countryside is dotted with medieval towers, wayside chapels and the oldest known human structures in the world, the Islands have rightly been described as an open-air museum.
Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative center. Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterized by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture. Comino, the smallest of the trio, has one hotel and is largely uninhabited. Gozo boasts of more greenery than Malta with its hilly landscape and picturesque countryside, making it an island full of charm, waiting to be discovered.
In Sicily, you will arrive in Pozzallo, where you can truly feel the charm and beauty of this wonderful island. From there, you will drive through the busy streets of Catania, all the way up to Mount Etna and its Sylvester Craters. Your last stop will be in Taormina, where you can admire the views, overlooking Giardini Naxos.

Malta’s history and geography had an important influence on its cuisines. Having to import most of its foodstuffs, being positioned along important trade routes, and having to cater for the resident foreign powers who ruled the islands, opened Maltese cuisine to many outside influences from very early on. Foreign dishes and tastes were absorbed, transformed and adapted. Italian (specifically Sicilian), Middle Eastern and Arabic foods have a strong influence here, but the presence in Malta of the Knights of St John and more recently, the British brought elements from further afield. Aljotta for example (a fish broth with plenty of garlic herbs and tomatoes), is the Maltese adaption of Bouillabaisse. The Knights contacts and wealth brought also food from the New World. It has been suggested that Malta may have been one of the first countries in Europe (after Spain) where chocolate was first tasted.
