Trip Report Quick Trip Report - MALTA/FRANKFURT

Jump to last reply

I’ll work up a full trip report later, but thought I’d put my initial thoughts together while I had the chance.
My wife and I spent 8 days in Malta and a 2 night layover in Frankfurt on the way back. It was a great trip (lots of good food!) and I’d recommend a similar itinerary to anyone.
Malta is a neat place. It’s very compact and I was amused that every time I put a location into my GPS (more on that later) and it said it was under 20 minutes away. It combines a wide variety of things and everyone should find something of interest. These include ancient temples, baroque churches, WWII history, hiking and swimming/snorkeling/scuba.
As for Frankfurt, it doesn’t deserve it’s ‘not a tourist destination’ reputation. While I wouldn’t spend a week there, it’s an interesting place and if you get the chance to spend a day or two there, I’d jump on it.

Now the details…

The itinerary was:
• 3 Nights in Valletta, Malta
• 3 Nights in Ghasri, Gozo (including a trip to Comino)
• 2 Nights in Rabat, Malta
• 2 Nights in Frankfurt, Germany
• We used a cab to get from MLA to Valletta and then back to MLA to pick up a rental car to get to Gozo (via the ferry). In Germany, we used the train to get from FRA into the city and back.
