Malta promises over 300 days of annual sunshine and pairs this with a fascinating 7,000-year history giving you a unique Escape destination. The sense of historic importance is almost tangible in Valletta, Malta’s UNESCO World Heritage-listed capital city. Giant bastion walls soar over 40 meters high, creating an imposing entrance to the city. Then cobbled-streets, beautiful gardens and ancient buildings entice you to explore on foot. Drop down another gear and take the ferry to Malta’s sister island of Gozo. Here you’ll find the Azure Window – the iconic rock formation that’s surrounded by crystal-clear waters – the crown jewel of Malta. The remarkable clarity of the coastal waters makes Malta one of Europe’s number one scuba diving destinations.
