Malta Quick Travel Guide
With a travel rating of 60%, Malta is nearly off the charts when it comes to historical options for PlanetHoppers! Chief among these is the Hypogeum Temple, the world's only prehistoric underground temple. After returning to the surface, you can continue your explorations with a visit to both the old capital of Mdina and new capital of Valletta. This will provide you with a fairly comprehensive insight into the Maltese psyche - so much so that, depending on how long you stay, you're bound to start feeling like a local. This friendliness speaks volume for the place and makes it easy to "come for a week and stay for a month", as the saying goes. But as even the most die-hard "urbanite" knows, eventually you have to get out of the city and Malta certainly doesn't disappoint. With a coastline that includes the Blue Grotto - which was featured prominently in the movie Troy - you will get a fairly good view of the natural beauty on display. Let's be honest, if nothing else, Hollywood certainly knows how to pick the best locations.
