Gozo-Malta – 2018

2018 – Malta .We catch Bus 222 from Sliema the the ferry and we were jammed with people. Took about an hour to arrive to the ferry and 460 Euro return. The Ferry crossing took about 25 minutes. Fabulous views of the coast along the way. The Bus is there as soon as we dock. Our hour drive to the Temples gave us a chance to see much of the island.

At the Visitor Center we see many displays of artifacts dating back to around 3000 to 2400 BC. The information describes this as a second oldest archeological ruin on Earth.

Xaghra Stone Circle-We follow the trail through the stone walled farmland to the Circle of Stone (not an actual stone circle). We learn it is actually a see prehistoric burial site.

Ggantija TemplesThe ancient stone rooms and they are an unusual covered cave like areas. Very interesting. It became the UNESCO World Heritage site have an extraordinary history. Built between 3600 and 3200 B.C, they fell into disuse around 2500BC and were not fully revealed to the modern eye until the nineteenth century.


  1. How nice to see images from Malta where I lived for more than 20 years before moving to Cyprus.
    But 460 Euro return!!! I guess I missed something there 😁

  2. The first views of Gozo as the ferry comes into the harbour must have been quite fabulous 🙂

    I always wanted to visit Malta and take a day trip to Gozo island to visit Popeye’s Village. But from what I hear it has now been transformed into a theme park of sorts with plastic trampolines floating on the bay. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx
