Malta – the very name conjures up thoughts of St George's Cross and enough historical sights to keep you busy for a month. But there’s so much more to this little beauty than a fascinating past. These days you’re just as likely to hear about its film locations and nightlife as you are its history and culture. The Hollywood swords ‘n’ sandals epics Troy, Gladiator and Alexander were all filmed on the island’s sunny shores. And world famous DJs are flocking here to spin some discs at the up-and-coming hotspots. But though Malta’s image is changing fast, its breathtaking beauty remains one of the key things that draws people back year after year. Wherever you go, the island’s eye-popping scenery provides a sigh-inducing backdrop. And as for all that history, with so much of the past still visible today, there’s no wonder it’s known as an open-air museum. Travel back in time to discover Malta’s mysterious prehistory. Retrace the footsteps of St Paul. Or see where the Knights of St John defended Christendom. But Malta is no regular museum. Here life is lived to the full, so be prepared to get stuck into the Mediterranean way of life. Throw yourself into carnivals and make the most of the island’s packed calendar of events. If you’re looking for a destination that offers more than just a suntan, Malta’s a first class choice.
