Malta is a country dotted with Baroque churches, stone cottages, some of the world’s oldest human structures, and enough historical sights to keep you constantly busy. Here you can check out the locations where films like Gladiator, Brad Pitt’s World War Z and Spielberg’s Munich were shot, enjoy the beach and later savour the nightlife.

Indeed, you can do it all… and you can do it without the stress of driving (and trying to park…) in what has become one of the most car-dense countries in Europe. How? Malta’s bus operator Arriva has introduced to the islands a 300-strong fleet of modern air-conditioned buses, with the latest in passenger comfort and safety standards.
