With over 7,000 years of history, Malta has a rich culture, beautiful cities and delicious food. The Islands have also played host to the Phoenicians, the Romans, the Knights of St. John, Napoleon and the British Empire, and the architecture reflects this. Today, Maltese culture has many rich and colourful festivals and local people are known for their hospitality.

Malta is also home to clear water, good diving and the occasional sandy beach, making it a wonderful destination for a summer break. Being home to an abundance of outstanding produce, a sea brimming with delicious seafood, and recipes dating back centuries, food and drink are the very essence of Maltese Culture.
