Jam-packed and comprehensive,

This review is from: Malta and Gozo (Bradt Travel Guides) (Paperback)
This guide seems to have everything: cultural, culinary, historical, political, social - and most vitally, sound practical advice. Clearly the writer knows and loves her subject, and provides many useful tips and insights based on close personal experience and understanding. The style is lively and down to earth; the enthusiam obvious but intelligently deployed. There are copious photos and maps, and the format is neat and easy to handle. If you are seeking sun & sand and the bistro scene, then this is fine. But the guide offers so much more - for families, children, individuals, young and old; for history buffs, lovers of art and architecture - and, of course, for those obsessed with megaliths and pre-historic temples! Whether on the hoof or in an arm chair with a glass of wine, this is a guide to be savoured and enjoyed.
