After saying it as a standard phrase like teenagers do when answering their parents' quests/orders ("yes, yes aha, ok, hm, bye") we finally booked flights to go and visit our friend in Malta. We are not fully satisfied with the southern weather which makes us sweat 24/7 that we go somewhere even hotter with a deadly scorching weather...in August (we are naturals at suffering).
With not a lot of idea about what we can do, see, etc. there - N and I started searching first for pictures of the dreamy beaches and then some info about the islands. To my surprise I discovered Malta has been used for the setting of lots of films, such as Gladiator, Munich or Troy. But other than filmography, I was interested in everything related to history this country has to offer:
Culture & Heritage
Mediterranean legacy is the main character of the island. History is visible in buildings and fortresses. I don't think we will have time for museums but I'm sure visiting different places around will do, since architecture in general gives a hint of the course of the 7.000 years this place has. Malta's archaeological sites look great and I'm already thinking of the amount of pictures I will take (and outfits I will wear!): Roman villas, labyrinths, temples, monuments, dolmens etc. will leave us speechless I'm sure.
