Island Hopping in Malta

Posted: 22/05/2013 10:17

The trio of tiny islands that make up the Maltese Archipelago of Malta, Gozo and Comino lie in the middle of the Mediterranean ocean, just south of Sicily and above North Africa, drawing inspiration from all sides. The sun drenched islands are renowned for their colourful harbours, beautiful sandstone architecture, rich culture and history, Italian and Arabic influenced cuisine and of course their friendly residents that give the islands much of their character. It goes without saying that we at Black Tomato are major fans of the Maltese islands and can't wait to show you some of the best it has to offer.

Malta’s beautiful old city lies atop the ancient bastions on Malta’s hills and its breath-taking views across the coastline and landscape are well worth the detour. Its narrow sandstone streets are home to countless grand palaces showcasing splendid feats of architecture that have given the capital its name as ‘The Noble City’. Steeped in history, its maze of streets and alleys make for a fascinating stroll whereby you are guaranteed to stumble across a Cathedral or Museum worth exploring. The Domus Romana is particularly noteworthy, with its magnificent mosaics and impressive collection of Roman artefacts. A harbour cruise is a great way of seeing the island, whilst the city’s streets are literally paved with traditional bakeries, restaurants and cafes that won’t need much to tempt you in.
