Malta and Gozo                         
February 20 - March 06, 2025   

Located in the Mediterranean between Sicily and North Africa, the Maltese islands enjoy a moderate winter climate with an average high of 17C, ideal for walking and exploring. Known as the sunniest place in Europe, Malta is a winter escape where you can relax, dabble your toes in the sea and experience a culture with a blend of British, Arabic, Italian and French influences. Having been invaded by many countries over the years, Malta has more historic sites per sq mile than anywhere in Europe. If you are both a history buff and a rambler, Malta is heavenly. Gozo, its sister island, is a hidden gem, a hideaway where both history enthusiasts and nature lovers can find bliss. The waters are blue, the crowds are thin and the history is deep.
