Started our visit with snack in the cafe, stroll through the shop, then viewed the 45 minute history of Malta film, then an engaging professional presentation during the tour of the Knights Infirmary. All very interesting and glad we visited.

Worth a visit to give you an insight into the heroic history of this amazing island. Helps you to appreciate the spectacular fortifications and buildings of this city and country. A good starting point of your visit to Malta.

Although lots of good reviews we were still sceptical about this being as good as it claimed. But in fact it was great. Very informative but quite a slow queue to get in even though it’s only January .

If you are looking for wide sandy beaches then you will be disappointed. Most are small and stoney or off of rocks but the water is crystal clear. Some hotels have small 'artificial' sandy beaches by which I mean they have... More
