    Information on Malta

    Im getting married in Florence in September and looking into a 10 days honeymoon in Malta. I dont know much about the country and most of the websites i have been on have had mixed reviews eg dirty streets, no nice beaches etc..

    Has anyone ever been to Malta and if so what did you think of the place? Any information would be helpful

    Cheers!

    Re: Information on Malta

    I haven't been myself but a friend works with a guy from Malta. He recommends Gozo - the small island off Malta. Its less touristy and were the Maltese go, apparently.

    Married in Florence - that's cool. Was it difficult to organise?

    Found a company on the web based in Florence, two English women who run it. They have co-ordinated most of it for us so its been pretty good. Really looking forward to it. Roll on Sept.

    Cheers for the Malta info!

    Thought I'd better ask and it was a typo - you were getting married to Florence rather than in Florence.

    Italy is far more beautiful. Stay there. Faultless food and wine - lest we forget.

    Re: Information on Malta

    10 years since I was there so who know how it might have changed. I enjoyed it and whilst the beaches weren't fantastic there were plenty of good places to go. I'd recommend getting some transport (scooter/motorbike/open top jeep) and explore the towns away from the tourist traps.

    Gozo is pretty cool, you can find amazing lagoons cut into the rock to chill out in.

    I don't remember the streets being dirty but I recall the local youngsters not being particularly friendly.

    Re: Information on Malta

    I thought malta was ok - standard med-package type gig, minus , for the most part, the union-jack shorts brigade.

    historical stuff to see as well, though i missed most of it cos they're shut in the afternoons and i could never get oot me pit in time

    that said, as others have said before me, if yer getting spliced in italy, why leave?

    Re: Information on Malta

    Its 10 years ish since i was there , the one beach i remember was Paradise Bay i think.
    I'd agree on the streets being a bit dirty , not sure i'd go back as i've been twice and its only a wee place.
    The Blue Lagoon (Comino) between Malta & Gozo is awesome probably the most beautiful place ive ever seen

    Nice one mate where about in Malta are you staying.

    Had a look online dont really fancy Valetta or Sliema. Buggiba looks nice or the Northern part of the island just before Gozo.

    Getting married in Italy but fancied a honeymoon somewhere else, looked at Croatia as its not far from Italy but fancy Malta.

    Firenze is quite simply one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, take in the baptistry, Duomo and the Uffizzi!!!!
    Awesome




    Oh and the ponte vechio also
