one week in malta

The small country of Malta is a nice destination for those who want to escape the winter.  We visited Malta in early March 2023 and the weather was cool in the shade, perfect under the sun and windy about ⅔ of the time.  Though a small country, it offers enough things to do for a full week and maybe even more depending on what you are inclined to do.  For one week, we visited the cities/towns of Gozo, Rabat, Mdina and Valletta and the rest were devoted to doing hikes to see beautiful places.  We also rented a car and took public transportation.
