On your next trip to the island of Gozo make sure to consider employing our Gozo car hire services in order to explore as many of the island’s attractions as possible. Gozo is part of the Maltese archipelago but it differs from Malta by the fact that it is smaller and less developed than Malta. It is a tourist destination of its own featuring many ancient fortifications as well as old churches and megalithic ruins and temples, it is definitely worth a visit.
Considering the size of the island and the proximity of Malta, Gozo doesn’t have an airport serving it but you can reach it very easily with the help of the ferry service between the islands. Either way you can reach it either with a rental car from one of our Malta car rental offices or pick one up from one of our Gozo car rental offices.
Once on the island, you’ll find that despite its relative small dimensions it packs quite a lot of interesting attractions and sights, and quite a number of settlements, the biggest of them all being Victoria which is also known as Rabat. This is Gozo’s capital and basically the only true urban settlement on the island, the rest of the places that you will be visiting are mainly villages.
Gozo shares much of Malta’s history as you might think considering their close proximity, you will find the same megalithic ruins on Gozo but what Gozo has that Malta doesn’t is the Ggantija temples which are the oldest structure on the planet.
Other points of interest are the rotunda church which was built to honor St. John the Baptist can be seen in the village of Xeqkija and it is the largest church on the island.
Some less religious attractions include the many fortifications built throughout the centuries on the island which include citadels, bastions, as well as grain silos and raid shelters.
These are of course only a few of the many things that you can see and do while on the island of Gozo so make sure you employ our Gozo car hire services in order to experience as much of what it has to offer as possible.
