A stay of one week will be more than enough to visit the main sights of the country. As the distances are short, the order of the following days can of course be modified according to your calendar. Nothing obviously prevents you from staying more than a week in the archipelago. This makes it possible to spend more time in Gozo, especially for those who do not have a vehicle. And it is also an opportunity to visit forgotten places such as the Marfa Peninsula, the cliffs of Gozo, the south coast of Malta and its paths that plunge down to the sea, the many small villages in the centre (Qrendi, Siggiewi, Mgarr...). This allows you to take your time and enjoy local events (sports, religious festivals, cultural events).

Details of the stay: Discovery of Malta - 7 days

Day 1 : Visit to Valletta

A day will allow you to get to know the city well. In the evening, dinner in a trendy restaurant in the centre.

Day 2 : The Three Cities and the surrounding area

Ferry crossing from Valletta to visit the city's three historic cities in the morning: Vittoriosa (Birgu), Copiscua (Bormla) and Senglea (Isla). In the afternoon, pass by Tarxien just behind the Three Cities, to visit the Neolithic temple that is there, the hypoglyph is no longer available for an indefinite visit.

Day 3 : Centre of the island

It can be seen in a day, including Mdina, the old capital, Mosta and its gigantic dome, the San Anton gardens. If you have a vehicle, you can also visit in addition to the charming small villages of the centre (Naxxar, Siggiewi).

Day 4 : Nature in the heart of the island

By bus, you can combine cultural visits with the pleasures of the sea by going to the blue cave (to the south) and visiting the prehistoric temples of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra nearby. With a vehicle, you can spend the day on the small wild roads of the south and west coasts of the island with these three key visits, but also the cliffs of Dingli, the beaches of Golden Bay or Paradise Bay.

Day 5 : Visit to Gozo

You can reach this island by bus or car very easily (25 minutes crossing from Cirkewwa). Visit of Victoria, its small streets and its renovated citadel. In the afternoon, head to San Lawrenz and Dwejra Point for a spectacular sunset. If you are in a vehicle, take a walk in the small coastal villages such as San Andrea or rest on the eastern beaches, nearby Ramla Bay and San Blas Bay. Overnight in a typical farmhouse on the island.

Day 6 : Return to Malta

On the way, stop in the pretty villages on the north coast: St Paul's Bay, Bugibba and Qawra. Stop on the beautiful beach of Mellieha and detour to the Neolithic site of Skorda, the oldest in Europe. In the evening, you can go out in St Julian's and Paceville like all Maltese people. On the agenda: restaurants and night fever.

Day 7 : Last day on the island

Sunday morning market in Marsaxlokkk, a pretty little fishing village with many fish restaurants in the south of the island. Relaxation by the waterfront in St Thomas Bay or at Peter's Pool. Return to Valletta for a last shopping tour and visit of the museums we missed. Departure for the airport
