Malta lies 50 miles south of Italy and is one of the smallest countries with a population of 412,000. The landscape offers a mixture of rocky stretches of coastline and sheltered bays with clear waters and golden sand. Although the country is staunchly Roman Catholic, there is an interesting mixture of cultures. This is reflected in the traditional Maltese cuisine on offer, a delicious mixture of Sicilian and Middle Eastern.
