Is Gozo Island worth visiting in Malta?

edited June 2013 in Europe
On a holiday in Malta is Gozo Island worth visiting or are most of the tourist attractions on Malta? What is worth seeing on Gozo and how long would we need to put aside to explore it? All advice welcome!

    Hi Sally,
    Gozo is definitely worth a visit, even if it is only for a day, though I would recommend longer. The coastline is really beautiful, great for scenic walks and swims, with unique rock formations. Gozo is a peaceful, sleepy island but there are some amazing historical attractions in the Citadel, in Victoria, and some prehistoric temple ruins to explore. Ferries leave from Malta Island regularly and it is easy to hop over to Gozo for a day or two.

    Here's a link to a good Gozo travel guide.
  • Gozo is peaceful and unspoilt and well worth a visit. you can always make the short trip back to Malta to take a tour around Valletta
