The Maltese Islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino bask in sunshine at the heart of the Mediterranean, between Sicily and Africa. History has ensured that the islands have been left with a colourful and complex history and heritage, from the Neolithic and the Medieval to the present day. Malta may be known as a popular tourist destination, but they also offer plenty of historic walks, stunningly beautiful and dramatic architecture, and a good amount of excellent scenery, especially around the cliffs and coastlines.
The guide offers 33 walks round the three islands. They range from heritage trails round historic cities and towns to coastal walks, and also include the exploration of inland areas.
The introduction to the guide provides practical information on getting to and around the islands, accommodation and language. There is also useful background information on Maltese history, geography, and flora and fauna.
