Alpine Sterling – Malta
Gem of the Mediterranean
The Maltese Archipelago is the gem of the Mediterranean, with a rich history spanning over 7000 years. The three Islands flaunt picturesque landscapes, dazzling blue seas and the highest density of Blue Flag beaches in Europe. All this including a fantastic climate, boasting 300 days of sunshine throughout the year, and a delectable cuisine.
Strategically located in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, just 60 miles from Sicily, this island was always highly sought-after. Malta attracted many rulers throughout history – from the Phoenicians, the Romans, the Arabs, the Normans and the Knights of St John to the British, who left the Islands in 1964. Today, the Maltese Islands reflect their fascinating heritage, with British influences found around every corner.
Being a small country, transfer times by sea or land are short. Accessibility is easy, with all the large European carriers flying to Malta from major European airports in under three hours. An abundance of historical venues and exquisite palaces are available for events and there are many options for fabulous accommodations, as large hotel chains operate properties locally.
Hospitable and Safe
Well-known for great hospitality and fantastic service, Malta is an incredibly safe destination that offers the possibility of visiting three Islands in one day, all for a great value! With 3 UNESCO World Heritage sites – including prehistoric temples, the Hypogeum and the 450-year-old Capital, Valletta – every stone has its own story to tell.
Official Languages – English and Maltese
The Island is a sovereign republic and member of the Commonwealth and the European Union. Most of the population is of Maltese nationality, and the operating currency is the Euro. The country’s official languages are English and Maltese, which is also the national language.
