In April/May 2018 I made a longer Mediterranean trip. On this trip I visited Morocco, Malta, Cyprus, and Sicily.

This is the description of the Malta part of the trip.

I flew into Valletta, where I picked up a rental car. I had booked a hotel for four nights through Expedia. I had a GPS with me and had made sure that it contained the maps for Malta. With the GPS it was no problem to find the hotel, and the sites that I wanted to visit.

Malta is a small island, you can drive across the island in about ½ hour to 1 hour, depending on traffic. It was therefore easy to reach all the sites that I wanted to visit.

The descriptions are from entries in Wikipedia.

On the first day I visited the Tarxien Temples, Ħaġar Qim, the Mnajdra Temple, the Skorba Temple, and the Cart Ruts at Misraħ Għar il-Kbir.

The Megalithic Temples of Malta are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. They include Ġgantija, Ħaġar Qim, Mnajdra, Skorba, Ta' Ħaġrat and Tarxien. The Megalithic Temples of Malta are among the most ancient religious sites on Earth, described by the World Heritage Sites committee as "unique architectural masterpieces."

On the second day I visited Mdina, Rabat, the St. Paul's Catacombs, and Valletta.

The City of Valletta is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

On the third day I visited the northern parts of Malta to see some of the De Redin towers and Saint Agatha's Tower. I visited the Għallis Tower and the Madliena Tower of the De Redin Towers.
