Plenty of sunshine, fascinating history, and the worlds largest manmade structure are just a few delights awaiting visitors to the tiny Mediterranean island of Malta. Several European cities fly to Malta International Airport each day, and the airport also serves as the main Malta car hire pick-up point.
Cheap Malta car hire is the most ideal way to explore the country, especially since many Malta attractions are accessible only by car. Maltas largest city, Valletta, is just five kilometres from the airport and the ideal place to begin exploring Malta by car hire. Valletta itself is easily walkable, almost completely surrounded by water, and filled with historic buildings such as St John's Co-Cathedral and Museum, the Auberge de Castille, and the Palace of the Grand Masters. The most spectacular Valletta views can be seen from the Upper Barrakka Gardens while the 500-year-old Fort Elmo is also worth exploring.
Baroque and Norman buildings line the cobblestone streets of Mdina, a 3,000-year-old city located not far from Valletta by Malta hire car. Malta hire car may also transport visitors to the 4,400-year-old Hypogeum cave network, filled with tunnels, rooms, and intricate rock carvings, and the three ancient maritime cities forming the area of Cospicuam.
However, Maltas oldest structures of all are the sacrificial altars, intricate carvings, and towering megaliths forming the Hagar Qim Temples. Dating from 3,800 BC, these temples are not only the oldest structures in Malta, but the oldest manmade structures in the world. Only 500m away lies another impressive temple and World Heritage site, Mnajdra.
