TRAVEL / Malta –

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure to stay in a traditional maltese house in Silema, a walking distance from the sea. Balconies often constitute the main component of facades. Made of wood, they are a bright touch of color on the honey-coloured old stone houses.

Silema bay offers a nice view over Valetta, the capital city of Malta, reachable by boat in 15 minutes.

A 40 minutes bus ride later, welcome to Mdina, a medieval walled town situated on a hill in the centre of the island.

And, although it’s packed with tourists, a boat tour to Comino offers you a stunning view over the blue lagoon’s crystal waters.
