The Maltese Islands’ historical and cultural heritage by far exceeds their modest geographical dimensions, thus making Malta one of the most history-rich countries in the world. Through the ages, Malta enjoyed several external and long-lasting influences that left their traces on our islands. With Neolithic temples older than the pyramids, and later conquered by the Phoenicians, Carthaginians, Romans and Byzantine, Malta had become a unique cocktail of cultures. Without a doubt, the Arab and British rule both left their mark on our language and lifestyle; and our carefully selected list of excursions will give you a good insight into Malta’s journey through the ages.
