Malta is an archipelago in the central Mediterranean (in its eastern basin), some 93 km (57.79 mi) south of the Italian island of Sicily across the Malta Channel.
Food in Malta may not rank as gourmet cuisine, but it is very reasonably priced and there are plenty of places to choose from.
Today, the EURO is the Malta currency. The Euro replaced the old currency of Malta (i.e. the Maltese Lira) on the 1st of January 2008.
