The Maltese Archipelago is located 93km south of Sicily. It consists of three islands, namely Malta, Gozo and Comino. A vast history left many marks on these tiny islands including Megaliths, archaic artifacts, Calypso’s Cave; and many more. Moreover the countryside is sprinkled with medieval towers, wayside chapels and some the oldest known human structures in the world. Due to this richness in history, the Islands are compared to an open air museum. The Islands are positively mythic and every island offers something different and unique. The Grand Hotel Excelsior is located on the largest island – Malta. It isknown as the cultural, administrative and commercial centre. Gozo, the second island is rather typical of rural lifestyle and activities. The smallest island Comino is uninhabited, however it boasts a stunning Blue Lagoon, a popular site to visit. Malta offers more than 300 days of sunshine, great beaches, 7000 years of history and a varied nightlife.The Islands have great connectivity to major European cities and most flights have a duration of approximately 2.5 hours.
where the past underlines the present...
Your lap of luxury is on the doorstep of Valletta, a UNESCO World Heritage City. Malta’s capital city is inextricably linked to the history of the military and charitable Order of St. John of Jerusalem. Valletta’s sites and attractions include the Palace, the Co-Cathedral, the auberges, the museums, the art galleries, the Manoel Theatre, shopping and nightlife, and cover an area of only 55 hectares. This makes Valletta one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world. In October 2012 Valletta was awarded the prestigous title of European Capital of Culture 2018.
