  • A very interesting itinerary shows beautiful landscapes and views of Malta. The road goes uphill, sometimes down to the sea, which is unreal turquoise color, there are ancient structures destroyed. Interestingly, in principle, go easy, but you need to stock up on water and wear comfortable shoes. Images look exceptional!
