The Maltese Islands of Malta, Gozo and Comino bask in sunshine at the heart of the Mediterranean, between Europe and Africa. That location has ensured that the islands have been colonised time and time again, leaving them with a colourful and complex history and heritage, from the neolithic to the present day. The islands are a popular tourist destination. They offer plenty of historic walks, stunningly beautiful and dramatic architecture, and a good amount of excellent scenery, especially around the cliffs and coastlines. The guide offers 33 walks round the three islands. They range from heritage trails round historic cities and towns to coastal walks, and also include the exploration of inland areas. The introduction to the guide provides practical information on getting to and around the islands, accommodation and language. There is also useful background information on Maltese history, geography, and flora and fauna.
