The Maltese Islands – Gozo

11/29/2016

Gozo is the second biggest of the Maltese islands, and a must visit when in Malta. Think of it as a more serene, cleaner version of mainland Malta. There are many sites to see on this island, it is rich in history. You may want to book yourself a room, or villa and spend more than one day on the island.

Places to go  while in Gozo

1.Victoria – The capital. A good place to visit quaint shops with Gozitan crafts and more.

2. Citadella – The fort, originally built by the Romans in the heart of  Victoria then rebuilt by the Knights of St John, now houses a museum, some restaurants and some conference rooms and lovely terraces accessed via narrow ancient streets. The citadel also houses a cathedral built in 1697. If you’re a Game of Thrones fan you’ll want to see the Citadella, some of the GOT scenes were shot here.

3. Dwerja Bay and The Azure Window – supposedly it’s splitting apart slowly over time, you might want to see it before it is a window no more. People like swimming here as well and exploring the caves. The popular diving spot, Blue Hole, is located here. The Inland Sea, Il-Qawra, great for swimming, is also located in this area.
