  • Truly perfect place to stay!

    "I dint usually take the time to writer reviews after holidays but felt this was needed. Stayed 3 nights with my boyfriend and another couple. The owner is great, when we arrived he showed us round the local area and where the best local Italian resturants were to eat and these are non tourist restaurants so they are authentic Italian food and they were really good! I would recommend eating at the local resturants they are really worth it and a lot cheaper. They are only a 5 minuet walk from the apartment. He also gave us guidance on how to get around, what buses,tram or metro to use. He also took us on a free night tour of Rome which lasted about 2 1/2 - 3 hours, which showed us the main sites and some other great spots which we probably wouldn't have seen unless he had taken us there. The apartment is great it has wifi, very clean and modern, air con, coffee machine, sky. He also have us a complimentary bottle of prosecco on arrival, lovely warm welcome to Italy. We also had a late flight on the way home and he kindly let us leave our luggage there past 12 so we didn't have to drag luggage round on the last day before leaving. The area is slightly out of the city centre but it's only a 5 minuet tram ride to pizza del popolo and you can get the metro from there, or there's a bus which takes you directly to the Vatican. The Hot tub was great in the evening after a long day of sight seeing and it's based below the apartment in a private garden area. This place is great, I would come back again to stay. It's all as good as it sounds:). Get booking!!"

  • serene haven in central Italy

    "Having visited Todi and the surrounding area on several prior occasions, we can state unequivocally that Casa del Gelso is the finest, most comfortable and peaceful place to stay anywhere in Umbria or Tuscany. Its location allows travel throughout the central regions of Italy, always returning to a quiet scenic vista. It is an easy walk up the hill to the ancient city of Todi where people-watching, dining and exploring are unlimited."

Malta Travel Tips

Getting to Malta Vacation Rentals

Malta's international airport is located between the villages of Luga and Gudja on Malta Island. In terms of travel distance, the airport is a 10-kilometer drive from Valletta. To get to and from the airport you can make use of the efficient public bus transportation system. Taxis are also available for private transfers. The best way to get around the islands is by using the buses and ferries that make up the public transport system. The ferries connect the islands of Malta so you can go on day excursions and hop across to the other islands. One of the best ways to see the island's attractions is to hire a scooter or bicycle from one of the local tour operators.

Visitors to Malta Lodging

Malta is a popular European vacation destination because it offers a warm climate and is easily accessible. It is a destination for sun lovers and people who enjoy a wide variety of water sports. It is also a treasure trove for those with an interest in ancient history and culture.

Malta Travel Attractions

The surrounding warm Mediterranean seas provide many great water sport activities. For scuba diving enthusiasts, there are many excellent reefs and wrecks to explore. For almost all dive sites, you need a permit to dive so it's preferable to arrange your diving through a local dive charter company. Other popular water sports activities include sailing, snorkeling and Jet Skiing. If you want to explore the island's interior, take a horseback riding excursion that will take you to see ancient and historic sites. The Marsa Sports Club has an 18-hole golf course as well as tennis courts, squash courts, saunas and steam rooms. Many of the resorts have windsurfs and boats that you can hire.

Malta has a deep and detailed history, and many international conflicts have taken place here through the ages. Today, the island is a wonderful blend of varied cultures and traditions. The many local museums host interesting exhibits. Many of the museums and historic sites really bring the history to life. Every Sunday at the War Museum at Fort Elmo, the locals dress in period costumes and perform a military parade. At In Guardia and Alarme, you can see similar historical reenactments which are both interesting and entertaining. If you have an interest in archeology, then a must-see is The Museum of Archeology which has exhibits of artifacts that are believed to date back to pre-historic times. The entire island has recently been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site because of the many ancient ruins and historical sites. At St. Paul's and St. Agatha's churches, you can visit the ancient catacombs. The most impressive of the sites are the 7,000-year-old megalithic temples. The Ggantija Temple is believed to be the oldest freestanding temple in the world.

Seasons to Visit Malta

Malta is known for its many sunshine hours throughout the year. The peak travel season coincides with the European summer vacation time which is during July and August. Even though this is the hottest time of year in Malta, visitors can be seen out on the beaches enjoying the warm weather. The weather remains warm from May through October so if you want to avoid the crowds, you can travel earlier or later in season. As the season starts to turn, strong winds from North Africa which are known as the Sirocco winds tend to increase the temperatures and humidity levels, keeping the weather unusually warm. Most of the rainfall occurs during the winter months and the temperatures remain mild. This is generally the low travel season.
