We're in the process of planning a trip of 7 to 10 days in Malta. We've never been to Malta before - these are some of the resources and (really) basic information I've got together so far.
Offline, we're using the Lonely Planet guide to Malta & Gozo to help plan our trip. It's a fairly short book - but my impression is that it gives a good overview of the sights and attractions available in Malta. That said, I'd like to have read a bit more about the history of Malta - but given the richness of Maltese history, I suspect that may have changed the balance of the book quite substantially.
I picked the Lonely Planet. after flicking through it at the book store, but these are a couple of possible alternatives
Malta has sea links with Italy and Tunis.
Virtu Ferries runs catamaran services to/from Pozzallo and Catania in Sicily.
Grandi Navi Veloci run services between Livorno, Genoa, Palermo and Tunis to Malta.
Grimaldi Ferries refer to sailings from Genoa, Catania and civitavecchia on their website - but don't seem to have any actual sailings which I can book at around the times were want to go.
