Do & See
There are various places of interest in Malta, and most locations are easily reachable by public transport via Valletta. Plenty of different events are continuously held around the island, especially during the summer months. One of the most spectacular ones is the annual Malta Fireworks Festival in Valletta in the end of April - for three days, different countries and firework suppliers compete in putting on the best firework show; almost every weekend, the different villages hosts religious Festas. For an entire week, they celebrate their saint with church bells, processions, confetti and (at the weekend) they end the folk festival with an outstanding firework show.

Gozo

The sister island, Gozo, is well worth a visit on its own. Hire a car or book one of the day jeep safari trips that are offered by multiple tour operators. Upon disembarking, you will immediately notice the difference between the islands. Gozo has a more tranquil atmosphere and is packed with lush farms. While you are here don't miss the Citadel in Victoria, the Saltpans, the Inland Sea and the cliff where the Azure Window (formerly one of the most famous landmarks of Malta) once stood before its collapse in early 2017.
