Malta Quick Tour

September 5, 2013

Malta-LocatorThe second stop on our Mediterranean cruise was Malta.

Malta, a small island nation, is situated about 60 miles south of Sicily. We anchored at the capital of the country, Valletta. This was just a quick stop along the way to Greece, but it proved to be interesting.

Malta is known for its warm, dry climate, which our arrival would belie.  A virtual deluge of horizontal rain let lose as we pulled up to the dock. We watched from our stateroom, as dockside vendors and restaurant owners chased down their umbrellas and righted tables that toppled in the gale.

The storm was short-lived, and we did get out in the afternoon for a walk through the interesting and historic town of Valletta.
