Where is Malta?
Just south of Sicily in the Mediterranean.
Are they their own country?
Yes. They used to be under British rule, but they have been independent since 1964. They also drive on the left.
What language do they speak?
Everyone speaks English; locals also speak Maltese, which sounds like a cross between Arabic and Italian.
What is the currency?
The euro. Malta is the smallest country in the European Union.
How do you get there?
You can take the 90-minute ferry from Catania, Sicily, but it’s faster and cheaper to fly. Air Malta and several budget airlines fly to Malta from all over Europe. You’ll find the most flights from the UK and Italy.
