  • A magical week in Rome!!!

    "From the moment I contacted Natalia and Walter about this rental prior to a cruise, I knew it was special. They arranged for pick up at the airport upon our arrival as well as to our cruise port and return to the airport. When we arrived, Natalia stopped by to make sure things were in order and helped us plan our itinerary. She even gave us ideas of additional places to go in the area we would not have known about, and her tips on restaurants in the area were outstanding. Having a cell phone to contact them was also greatly appreciated as was the free wifi access. We traveled with another couple, and the apartment was roomy enough for 4 adults and fully equipped for our stay. The beds were extremely comfortable and the second bath was a plus with four adults. The temperature was warm for October, so having an air conditioner if needed was a great perk. The washer was also great since our visit was prior to a cruise and we could wash clothes. We enjoyed the neighborhood, the feeling of safety where ever we walked, and the easy access to the Colosseum and San Clemente right down the street. We thought a week would be adequate, but wish we had more time in Rome to enjoy the city and the hospitality offered by Natalia and Walter. Thank you for a magical week in Rome!!"

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.
