The autumn and spring seasons can produce excellent walking weather in these southerly latitudes, and Malta offers, a rich variety of country walking and ancient buildings.

Its central position in the Mediterranean has made the island a hub of history, from the landing of St Paul, through the times of the Knights of St John to the modern epic of Gallant Malta. The plaque awarding the island the George Cross, and the list of sunken ships in Fort Angelo can be seen in Valletta, whose Grand Harbour is indeed grand.

The cultural mix makes Malta unique: its language is based on Arabic, but English is widely spoken and you will feel oddly at home in this strange land with its traditional buildings, generous melange of Victorian frontages and other British touches.
