Marsalforn, Island of Gozo

Marsalforn ©
The busiest vacation resort on the island of Gozo, the small town of Marsalforn offers a pleasant seafront promenade backed by a string of low-rise hotels and apartment complexes.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Mon): admire the masterpieces at Gran Castello Historic House, explore the historical opulence of Citadel, and then steep yourself in history at Ggantija Megalithic Temples.

For other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, read Marsalforn itinerary maker site.

Melbourne, Australia to Marsalforn is an approximately 29-hour combination of flight and car. You'll gain 9 hours traveling from Melbourne to Marsalforn due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Melbourne in December, expect nights in Marsalforn to be about the same, around 13°C, while days are slightly colder, around 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Mon) early enough to travel to Comino.

While it is not the largest island of the Maltese archipelago, Comino serves as an oasis of serenity for many reasons other than its picturesque Mediterranean location.
Start off your visit on the 17th (Tue): explore the activities along Santa Marija Bay and then contemplate the waterfront views at Blue Lagoon.

For more things to do, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read our Comino trip itinerary maker site.

Malta's capital city, Valletta preserves most of its medieval architecture, built in the 16th and 17th centuries by the Knights Hospitaller, once a powerful military order.

There's much more to do: admire the striking features of St. John's Co-Cathedral, take in the waterfront at Valletta Waterfront, explore the ancient world of Mnajdra, and witness the site of a historic battle at Saluting Battery.

To find reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Valletta trip planning tool.
