Malta’s position in the centre of the Mediterranean meant the island was once a much sought-after strategic trophy, and the consequent melange of ancient residents have each left an indelible mark on the country’s cultural landscape. Malta cultural holidays celebrate the best of this mish-mash, with cuisine that takes inspiration from Sicily and the Middle East, architecture which dates back to Roman times and a language derived from Sicilian, Arabic and English. This cultural melting pot was recognised in 2018, when Valletta – Malta’s pocket-sized capital – was crowned as the European Capital of Culture.
UNESCO endorsed this accolade when they declared the city 'one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world’ and a stay here can include private guided tours of its baroque streets and storied haunts. Beyond Valletta, discover the fortress-like towns of Mdina and Victoria, or explore Malta’s ancient temples (also found on Gozo, its sister island). Hailing from Neolithic times, they represent some of the earliest examples of architecture in the world, while the Hal Saflieni Hypogeum – a 5000 year-old necropolis hidden underground in Paola – is one of the best preserved examples of prehistoric construction.

Seriously you guys are super organised and you really 'get' it. The beaches and reefs were superb, we rented a property for the six of us, which came with its team of cooks all very reasonably priced! The fishermen would come in the morning, and we'd pick the seafood we wanted, then the cooks would cook up a storm in the evening
