Ferries from Malta to Italy

About Malta:

Malta is a south European archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea, approximately 80 kilometres south of Italy.

It is one of the world’s smallest and most densely populated islands and its capital, Valletta is under a square kilometre in size. Despite this, Malta is still a popular holiday destination thanks to its warm climate, historical monuments, including nine UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and beautiful beaches and lagoons.

The capital city oozes 16th Century charm and was described by UNESCO as ‘one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world’. A stroll through the centre will take you past magnificent palaces and churches, a cathedral and various fascinating museums.

Malta’s main port can be found in Valletta, where you can sail across the Mediterranean Sea to Sicily. With frequent crossings to choose from, Malta is a useful departure point for one of Italy’s most beautiful islands.

About Italy:

Italy is a boot-shaped peninsula situated in the Mediterranean Sea at the bottom of Western Europe, with the Tyrrhenian Sea to the West, Ionian Sea to the South and Adriatic Sea to the East.

Italy is the fifth most visited country in the world and contains more World Heritage Sites than any other country. Although Rome, Milan, Venice and Florence are the top tourist destinations in Italy, the country’s rich collections of art, culture and literature from many different periods and regions make it impossible to judge on where the most interesting location is.

With around four thousand miles of coastline, with countless gulfs, inlets, and long sandy beaches, Italy is truly adapted to the holiday lovers every need. Coastal cities with their sea resorts and awesome beaches are easily reachable by car with a variety of ferries and vessels large and small ready to sail you there.
