5 days in Malta: pearl of Mediterranean

Why visit Malta?

If you are wondering what are the reasons to visit Malta by car, read my itinerary about what I think are the main stops of the tour "Malta road trip".

A tour of Malta by car will allow you to admire the pearl of the Mediterranean, an archipelago with its strong Arab imprint evident in the architecture and style of the buildings in a context of a former British colony.

March to November is the best time to visit Malta.
