The archipelago of the Maltese islands is made up of Malta, Gozo, Commino and Filfla. They lie between North Africa and Italy, only 90km south of Sicily. We are a European Member State with a population of over 400,000 people, having our own unique language which is Maltese.
The islands are well known for the prehistorical temples dating back to 3600 BC. Over the decades, we have been colonized and inhabited by various nations, leaving imprints on our culture, architecture, customs, language and cuisine.
The majority of the population can speak English and Italian, facilitating communications for the visitors. One can easily reach the Maltese islands either by sea or air.
