Gozo

Gozo is the sister island of Malta. The island lies only a few kilometers away from Malta. Despite being similar the island has a different flair from Malta, besides the island more vegetation, therefore much greener than Malta.

A few characteristic comparing Malta and Gozo:

  Malta Gozo
Population: approx. 385,000 approx. 27,000
Size: 316 square kilometres 67 square kilometers
Capital: Valletta Victoria (Rabat)


Why visit Gozo?


Gozo has something to offer which Malta does not have. For example on one hand the Azure Window, a naturally formed arch on the coast. On the other hand the capital Victoria with the small romantic lanes and the large bastions, from which one has an excellent view of the whole of Gozo and parts of Malta and Comino. Then there is the beautiful beach, the Ramla Bay, and the historical temples of Ggantija. In addition the flair of the island and the inhabitants is a completely different one than in Malta.

Ferry to and from Malta

Ferry to and from Malta

One can reach Gozo easily from Malta with the ferry. There are two operating routes from Malta to Gozo. The first and most commonly used is from Cirkewwa (Malta) to Mgarr (Gozo) and the second is from Sa Maison (near Valletta/Malta) to Mgarr (Gozo). Both routes are operated by the enterprise: Gozo Channel Ltd. The routes operate once per hour and the crossing lasts only 20 - 30 minutes. ... more

Sights in Vittoriosa (Birgu)

There is so much to see in Vittoriosa - the whole city is an open-air museum. The city is surrounded by an incredible flair of history, culture and modernity. The structure of the city equals that of a triangle. On the side facing to the inland there is a big city-wall with two gates. The most interesting way to enter the city is through the Couvre Porte. The side directed to the harbor entrance is also fortified. On the fortification, high above the sea, there is a nice promenade. From there you have a nice view on Valletta, the harbor gate and Kalkara. On the tip of the city is the Fort St. Angelo. The fort is stunning. The last side of the triangle, the side facing the Dockyard Creek/Senglea, has no fortification. There you can find the Casino de Venezia, Maritime Museum, St. Lawrence Church and a luxury hotel. In the city itself something is awaiting you around every corner. In the centre lies the Victory-Square - the square got his name after the Great Siege 1565 of the Turkish. It is said that the Grandmaster La Vallette was wounded during the siege on a fight at the fortification ’Poste de Castille’. The Turkish were already inside the city when the Grandmaster counterattacked them together with his personal body-guards.

Paceville

Paceville is the party-spot number one in Malta - especially in summer (from June to September), when the big parties start to happen. During the low season, in the winter months it’s less a party city, but more mellow, with fewer people hanging out, except for the weekend!

Mdina - the old capital

Mdina is the old capital city of Malta and lies on the south-western part of the island. You could say only a little bit in the outback. Beside it is Rabat. The population of Mdina is around 400 people. It is quite impossible that the population can increase, because the whole city resembles more a castle or fort then a city. The city lies 190mtrs above sea level (that’s quite high for Maltese landscape) and is surrounded with slopes on three sides. The city has almost the form of a square and is very strong fortified.
