about

Now in its third edition, Bradt's Malta has built a reputation as being the guide to have if you are really interested in discovering this island nation beyond the beaches. Updated throughout, this new edition delves into Malta's temples more comprehensively than any other guidebook. Packed with historical and archaeological facts from the Stone Age to the Romans, the Knights Hospitaller to World War II, it also showcases the islands' wildlife (and bird-watching opportunities), summer festas, and the less commercialised islands of Gozo and Comino. It also includes details of developments for the 2018 Valletta European Capital of Culture. Malta has long been known for package holidays but this island nation has 7,000 years of fascinating and visible history. With new hotels opening across the islands the guide includes greater coverage of accommodation and restaurants. There is more to the island than sun and sea and this guide will help you to discover the Malta beyond the tourist resorts.

Editorial Reviews

Juliet Rix makes a compelling case for the idea that Malta, which has languished under the lucrative, if unappealing, blanket of mass tourism, should be recognised as an important destination for the traveller seeking a solid sense of history, and even prehistory, and the cultural artefacts and fascinating sites history bequeaths.
