Are you planning a trip to Malta? The beautiful country has become one of our favorites in Europe! This is the page to find our best Malta travel tips, city guides, and boat tours.

Our first Malta trip was in the summer of 2021. We spent almost two weeks exploring the different islands and neighborhoods, and experiencing the best of Maltese culture. 

As you’ll see in our articles some of our highlights were strolling through the Silent City, swimming at the Blue Lagoon, and trying so much delicious local food. We also took a tour of Gozo Island which we highly recommend on your visit!

Many travelers will start their journey by flying into Malta from nearby Italy, or other popular cities around Europe. From there, you can rent a car or utilize public transportation to get around. 

It was surprising how much there is to see and do in this tiny European country! Check out all our Malta guides for tips, and to hear all about our own experiences.
