About Malta

The Maltese archipelago lies virtually at the centre of the Mediterranean, 93 km south of Sicily and 288 km north of Africa. The archipelago consists of three islands: Malta, Gozo and Comino with a total population of over 400,000 inhabitants occupying an area of 316 square kilometers.

Malta is the largest island and the cultural, commercial and administrative centre.

Gozo is the second largest island and is more rural, characterised by fishing, tourism, crafts and agriculture.

Comino, the smallest of the trio, has one hotel and is largely uninhabited.

In the Maltese archipelago you can span the millennia with an astonishing array of things to discover. And wherever you go, the scenery and architecture provide a spectacular backdrop. The colours are striking, honey-coloured stone against the deepest of Mediterranean blues.

Malta has been described as one big open-air museum. What makes it unique is that so much of the past is visible today. Delve into the island's mysterious prehistory, retrace the footsteps of St. Paul or see where the Knights of St. John fought their most famous battles.

Malta is holidaying as the mood takes you. And with near year-round sun, you can indulge in outdoor living at its best.

Malta Bridge

This event will encompass bridge seminars followed by the opportunity to play set hands with the assistance of the experienced team. There will be duplicate bridge sessions every evening as well as some afternoon sessions fitting around the excursions, all played in a friendly atmosphere.

Malta Tours

Away from the Bridge Table

As well as the bridge programme, there is time to relax by the pools or at the beach and there are a number of optional tours available.

Tours

Valletta and the Malta Experience

Valletta is the island’s capital – a tiny walled city founded by the Knights of St John after the Great Siege of 1565, with many museums, historic buildings and Baroque churches, including St John’s Co-Cathedral, home to Caravaggio’s Beheading of John the Baptist. The ‘Malta Experience’ is a 45-minute audio-visual presentation of the islands’ 7,000-year history.
Half day • £45 per person

The ‘Silent City’ of Mdina

The fortified city of Mdina was the capital of the islands until medieval times, and one of the best examples of a walled city in Europe. Known as the ‘Silent City’, it has recently doubled for King’s Landing in the landmark television series Game of Thrones.
Half day • £31 per person

Highlights of Gozo with lunch

21 islands comprise the Maltese archipelago and Gozo is the second largest, after Malta itself. It is more rural than Malta, known for its Neolithic temples and other prehistoric remains. This full day excursion includes ferry transport and lunch.
Full day • £71 per person
