DISCOVER THE BEAUTIES OF MALTA & GOZO We are excited to introduce a new itinerary for our 2014/2015 portfolio of unique small group tours, Malta and Gozo “Legendary Islands" . Travel to Malta & Gozo with their amazing climate, dramatic vistas and hearty cuisine that embodies all things Maltese. Many were those who occupied the islands in the course of their lengthy history (Phoneticians, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spanish, French and English) leaving behind an artistic and cultural heritage. On this small group journey, you'll begin your exploration of Malta, examining the imprints of history left by many civilizations, as you circle the island from west to east, north and south. Enjoy the contrasts of everyday life in these very different islands corners as you mingle with the locals during exclusive meals, wine tasting in Gozo Island, boat trips and similar experiences to enjoy. As early as prehistoric times, large temples were built indicating a highly developed and sophisticated civilization. It was, however, under the order of the Knights of St John that Malta developed culturally, artistically and the island was enhanced with beautiful palaces, churches, fortifications and work of art. With their mild climate, clear sea, impressive cliffs and the bright colours of the Mediterranean shrubs, Malta and Gozo are a true paradise and an ideal destination for holidays of all kinds. Our land tour to Malta can be combined with a pre-trip to Southern Italy or embark yourselves on a fabulous trip to discover the wonderful island of Sicily.
