Malta, a country composed of three major islands, is located in the Mediterranean Sea, just 58 miles south of Sicily, Italy. The Republic consists of the island of Malta, the islands of Gozo and Comino, as well as the uninhabited islands of Cominotto and Filfla.
Valletta is the capital city and the main port. Other Maltese cities include the old cities of Mdina and Rabat.
The landscape is characterised by low hills with terraced fields. The highest point, which even many locals have no idea how to locate, is the Ta' Dmejrek on Malta Island at 253 m near Dingli.
