Michelle Buttigieg, North American Representative for the Malta Tourism Authority, said: “Malta has once again been showcased as the number one destination for LGBTQ travelers in Europe. The Maltese, known for their warm Mediterranean hospitality, welcome all visitors including the LGBTQ travelers. Malta is especially attractive to the LGBTQ travelers because in addition to its 7000 years of history, it is known for its diverse culinary experiences, beaches, water sports and great nightlife.”

About Malta

The sunny islands of Malta, in the middle of the Mediterranean Sea, are home to a most remarkable concentration of intact built heritage, including the highest density of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in any nation-state anywhere.  Valletta built by the proud Knights of St. John is one of the UNESCO sites and the European Capital of Culture for 2018. Malta’s patrimony in stone ranges from the oldest free-standing stone architecture in the world, to one of the British Empire’s most formidable defensive systems, and includes a rich mix of domestic, religious and military architecture from the ancient, medieval and early modern periods. With superbly sunny weather, attractive beaches, a thriving nightlife and 7,000 years of intriguing history, there is a great deal to see and do.
