flew from nice to malta and spent 5 days there last week. We stayed in the gorgeous Westin Dragonara. It is a 10 min walk from chabad. Other hotels in the area are the Intercontinental and the Le Meridien. There is a kosher meat restaurant in the chabad house. Shabbos was nice. Most of the tourists were European, not many Americans go. On Shabbos morning, they daven in a shul around 30 min walk away. It is hot and there is no eruv there. We toured M'dina and Valetta. also went to see the fish market in Marsaxlokk. The blue grotto is quite pretty. I would definitely skip the the Blue Lagoon. It is an overrated crowded tourist trap.
Thanks

Awaiting the full TR with Pics...

Hi,
I'm thinking of going to Gozo in November, but got a bit nervous when I saw how close it is to Libya. Did you experience any antisemitism?
Thank you!

If we go for a week is the unlimited bus pass worthwhile.  We tend to walk or take buses, never taxis.

We arrived at the Maltaferry terminal. (last year) From there we wanted to take the boat to Gozo.  We couldn't enter, as there was a bomb alarm in Gozo.  So we went back to Malta.
