Alas, this is my final post from the tiny island nation of Malta. Although I was only here for six days on an Adventures Abroad trip led by Victor Romagnoli in October 2021 during a respite in the Covid pandemic, I saw and experienced enough to write fourteen separate posts. In the last two posts, our group began exploring Gozo, Malta’s tinier sister island beginning with the natural attractions at Dwejra and then moving on to the megalithic temples of Ggantija. In this post, we’ll move on to Victoria, the largest city on Gozo and after walking the medieval streets and stopping for lunch, we’ll visit the Cittadella Gozo which I found to be one of the real highlights of a country that has more than its share. Please join us one more time in Malta. Continue reading
