The island of Malta sits at the strategically important narrowing of the Mediterranean between Sicily and Tunisia, with the consequence that for millennia the island has been coveted, colonised, invaded and defended by everyone from bronze age tribes and Phoenicians to the Romans, the Moors, Crusader knightly orders, the French and eventually the British. The result? An island with virtually unparalleled
history and an extraordinarily rich cultural blend (the Maltese language, for example, is part Arabic, part medieval Sicilian Italian and part English) which is especially prominent in the capital city Valletta, a World Heritage site described by UNESCO as 'one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world.'
