Inhabited for thousands of years, Gozo shows evidence of historic immigration and is an island in the Mediterranean Sea, one of 21 that make up the Maltese archipelago, ruled by the Phoenicians, Romans, Arabs, Sicilians, French and British, among others. It’s known for its Neolithic Ġgantija Temple ruins, rural hiking paths, beaches and scuba-diving sites.
When to visit
If your main focus is exploring the Maltese islands, your best bet is basically any month apart from July/August. December, January and February are usually the coldest and wettest months of the year.
