Insider Tip: The best time to visit Malta on a cruise is in the late spring or early fall, when you'll enjoy pleasant weather and fewer crowds. 



Why Malta is a Great Cruising Destination 

Malta offers a strategic location in the Mediterranean, making it a perfect stop on any European cruise itinerary. Its rich history, spanning over 7,000 years, comes alive in its architecture, culture, and the stories of its people.

Insider Tip: Don't miss the historic city of Mdina, known as the "Silent City," a very walkable city that was Malta's capital city until 1530. Parts of Mdina were also featured (as Kings Landing) in the first season of Game of Thrones. 



Attractions and Experiences in Malta 

From UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the magnificent city of Valletta to the prehistoric Hal Saflieni Hypogeum, Malta is a treasure trove for history and culture enthusiasts. For nature lovers, the Blue Grotto and Golden Bay Beach are a must-see, while Gozo Island promises serene beauty.

Insider Tip: Try pastizzi, a traditional Maltese pastry, from Crystal Palace in Rabat, a favorite among locals.
