Monument / Landmark
“Ramla Bay is one of the best-known beaches of Gozo and therefore it is a must if you travel to this island. It is easily accessible, since a public bus will leave you five minutes away from it. Ramla Bay is well known for its red sand and because of that, many call it the red beach. Tip: Also, we recommend that from Ramla Bay you go to the Calipso Cave, the views will leave you speechless.”

City
“Valletta is Malta's capital and is definitely one of the must visit places on the island. The city is very walkable and easily accessible by bus. It's a historic city with rich architecture, amazing harbour views, and fantastic bars and restaurants. Some must see sights for me are the Triton Fountain, the New Parliament building and the City Gate, the Grandmaster's Palace (Old Parliament Building), Upper and Lower Barrakka Gardens, and St. John's Cathedral. Some of my favourite restaurants in Valletta are Rubino and Ġuże (both of which serve traditional Maltese dishes), Taproon, Noni, Trabuxu (wine bar), Vecchia Taranto (Napolitan pizzeria), Porticello (sea food), and the Harbour Club (fine dining).”
