Knights, Salt & Towers: Family Friendly Malta

A rich and varied history created by the influence of so many nations on one island makes Malta one of Europe’s most historically rich outposts. This ‘Jewel of the Mediterranean’ has been occupied since the earliest days of civilisation, and with a fascinating mixture of cultural legacies and architectural styles there really is something here for everyone. Last year, Sarah took her family for a week’s holiday on the island to see what this historically diverse island could offer families.
