Malta

This tiny archipelago sits just off the southern tip of Sicily, but despite its size, it's home to a vast array of historical sites, cultural diverse experiences and a superb fusion of middle eastern flavours with Sicilian influence. While its beaches and resorts are a major draw for most tourists, its capital (Valletta) shouldn't be overlooked, offering a wide array of accommodation options from 5* hotels to boutique, family-run guesthouses. Staying away from the beaches means taking advantage of hotel facilities, where you can spend your days lounging by the pool, indulging in the spa but most importantly, relaxing as you put your worries to one side for a week or two.
