Malta is a group of islands in the Mediterranean between Sicily and North Africa. Its location means that it has been influenced by a variety of cultures, including the Roman, Moors, French, and British. When John and I visit a location for a week or more, we like to mix up our stays. While in Malta we stayed at a beach resort and also city location. The Corinthia Palace Hotel and Spa located in the capital city of Valetta was a wonderful choice.
