Gozo is a Mediterranean island located in the Maltese archipelago. It has long been associated with being the home of nymph Calypso, the mythological character from Homer’s Odyssey; the slow-paced lifestyle of this island makes it a tranquil haven for those seeking total relaxation. Known for its scenic hills and marvellous coastal landscapes, the countryside is dotted with Baroque churches, old stone farmhouses and hidden ancient sites. Explore the Citadel in Victoria – a small bastion city with rich history – admire the striking coastline, and visit the impressive megalithic temple complex of the Ggantija. Situated between Malta and Gozo is the smaller car-free and almost uninhabited island of Comino. Once a hideout for pirates, this is an unspoilt island famous for the crystal azure water and awe-inspiring caves of The Blue Lagoon. With beautiful natural landscapes and fascinating local history, Gozo and Comino are excellent choices for your exploration of Malta.
