Malta also includes the islands of Gozo and Comino; this archipelago in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea lies between Sicily, Tunisia and Libya. Old Latin customs, a well-established European culture, the joviality and patience of the east blend harmoniously with the Anglo-Saxon rigour of nearly 150 years of British Empire legacy. That is the spirit of this place! In the smallest European country, modernity and island identity mix. There are some fabulous places for diving and numerous wild coves to discover.
