Short trip with the family? Planning a long weekend? Want to head south? What are you waiting for?

Walk in the footsteps of knights
Located at the crossroads of civilisations, Malta's very essence is marked by a millenarian and cosmopolitan heritage that can be discovered by strolling through the streets of its capital, Valletta. A must-visit monument? The Palace of the Grand Master of the famous knights of the Order of Malta, one of the island's architectural masterpieces, is now home to the president.
Admire the views from where the Azure Window once stood
Located on Gozo Island, the second largest island in the archipelago, the "Azure Window" was one of the most remarkable natural arches on the planet. The result of erosion, this astonishing limestone formation, which collapsed in March 2017, was the wonder of walkers and divers, many of whom tried to reach the "Blue Hole".
Stroll through the Marsaxlokk fish market
Marsaxlokk, founded by the Phoenicians in the 9th century BC, is the largest fishing port on the island of Malta. The site, which is home to a Sunday fish market and multicoloured "luzzijiet" (traditional Maltese fishing boats), is one of the most picturesque locations on the island.
Go back in time through the ruins of Hagar Qim
Like the prehistoric Ghar Dalam cave, the ruins of Hagar Qim take you on a breathtaking journey through the ages. These ruins of the four temples built between the 4th and 3rd century BC, classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1992, are located in the south of the island, near the village of Qrendi.
Become a hero in Game of Thrones
Rocky outcrops between sea and sky, imbued with a deep-rooted medieval heritage, the Maltese archipelago is one of the favourite filming locations of the producers of the successful Game of Thrones series, from the rock faces of Mtahleb to San Anton Gardens, from the streets of Mdina to the gate of the Red Keep.
