A cruise to Malta, the largest of the three islands of the Maltese archipelago, is the perfect place to spend your vacation discovering the ancient civilizations of Mare Nostrum.
In Malta, there is no shortage of beautiful sandy beaches that overlook the turquoise sea and with exciting caves to explore, but the greater charm are the ancient stories of the Knights of Malta. Right from the port of Valetta, where we will doc on our Costa Cruise, the legendary Knights of Malta leave to fight against the Ottoman Empire. The co-cathedral of St. John, the Grandmaster's Palace with the magnificent Hall of tapestries and the narrow streets leading down to the sixteenth-century Fort St Elmo are the places where history resonates. The whole city of Valletta has been declared a world heritage site by UNESCO.
