Check in at centuries old churches and amble through ancient tombs. We've got your Malta itinerary sorted.

The Church of Miracles

You're spoilt for steeples and pews to peruse while in Malta, and each religious building has a unique history of its own. The Basilica of Ta' Pinu was due to be demolished back in 1575 until the first blow to the beautiful building caused a worker to break his arm. The sanctuary was saved and the rest is history. Head to the small island of Gozo to see it for yourself.

Popeye Village

Robin Williams' stint as the world's most famous spinach-lover may be a distant memory for some but the comic's depiction of Popeye is very much alive in this corner of Malta. The original purpose-built film set is open to the public as an open-air museum and seaside resort complete with shows, rides and play houses dedicated to the sailor with the largest forearms in history.

Hypogeum of Hal Saflieni

Picture an ancient cemetery dug three floors deep using primitive tools and antlers and you've got the right idea. The underground chambers in Paola are incredibly well preserved and make up the only subterranean labyrinth in Europe dating back up to 6,000 years. The skeletons have moved on but the sense of wonder remains.

Blue lagoon

Serious snorkellers and daytripping divers often head to the small island of Comino, between Malta and Gozo, to swim its crystal clear waters. The car-free island is mostly uninhabited and features just the one hotel, but it's the Blue Lagoon that proves the main draw. Get your goggles at the ready and prepare for a tentacled spectacle.

Marsaxlokk Harbour

Tucked away on the south of the island and away from the bustling capital, Marsaxlokk is a quaint fishing village that wouldn't look out of place on your followers' Instagram feed. Expect some of the best seafood in the country and keep an eye out for the brightly coloured fishing boats. That's if they don't catch sight of you first - the 'luzzus' as they're often known, are decorated with glaring eyes to ward off evil spirits.
