Malta packs glorious variety into its small archipelago. You’ll find prehistoric temples, stunning cliffs, pristine beaches, thrilling scuba diving and a history of remarkable intensity!
If you look at one of the brightly painted Maltese fishing boats, you will be sure to notice a pair of eyes carved or painted on the front. This traditional boat, called luzzu, is usually brightly decorated in shades of yellow, red, green and blue. Luzzus have existed since the ancient times. The eyes on the bow, originating from the time of the Phoenicans, are sometimes referred to as the Eye of Horus or of Osiris. They are said to protect the fishermen while at sea.
These colourful boats can be spotted at Marsaxlokk Harbour. The fishing village of Marsaxlokk is also known for one of the most popular markets in Malta, where locals buy fresh fish and seafood caught during the same morning. Originally a fish market, it has developed, and now it also sells local products like honey, fruit jams, wine, souvenirs and clothes. The biggest market is held on Sundays, from early morning until around 12:30. Arriving early is recommended.
Sardinia, due to its various landscapes characterized by a mountainous interior and especially a coastline with turquoise waters and wonderful beaches, attracts throngs of holiday-makers every year. Besides the naturalistic heritage, Sardinia will enchant you with its intriguing history and interesting archaeological sites. In fact, due to its position, was on Mediterranean trading routes and consequently subjected to the influence of many civilizations including the Phoenicians, Romans and Byzantines and later Spanish domination.
“To have seen Italy without having seen Sicily is not to have seen Italy at all, for Sicily is the clue to everything”, wrote Goethe. Warm weather, astonishing beaches, ancient ruins and great food – that is what you will find in the largest of the Italian islands. This suggestive island, in the past crossed and ruled by many civilizations, can praise a huge historic and cultural patrimony summed to an incredible amount of natural attractions! The best option would be to rent a car and explore all of them: Riserva dello Zingaro, San Vito Lo Capo, the Favignana Island, Palermo, Cefalù, the Valley of Temples on the west; Catania, an excursion on the Etna Volcano, Taormina, Siracusa, Noto, Alcantara Gorges on the east!
