I shall be visiting the island of Malta this summer for two weeks. Whenever I visit a country, I don't just want to lie on the beach or sit by the pool every day. I wish to get out and about to see the country and its people.
I plan on visiting the capital Valletta. I have been told the Blue Lagoon on the island of Comino is worth a visit. As I shall be staying in the north of the island, close to the ferry terminal, I also plan to visit the island of Gozo. If anyone has experience of Malta and its islands (which I am aware is very popular with British and Italian tourists, amongst other Europeans), further guidance with regards to churches, museums, palaces, town and villages with historical context (if any) that may be visited either in the capital or the rest of the island(s) would be much appreciated.
(I know that Malta, in particular its island of Gozo is famous for deep-sea diving, I won't be partaking in that).
