Things to see in Gozo

Gozo's many attractions can be enjoyed all year round thanks to the island's  Mediterranean climate, with mild winters and 300 days of sunshine each year.

Sporty types can enjoy energetic activities such as rock climbing, water sports, hiking and cycling, while those who want to get a feel for Gozitan life and culture can visit the island's many quaint villages, baroque churches and historic sites such as the Ġgantija temples and the Citadel in Victoria.

Gozo may be a small island in the Mediterranean, but it has a long and fascinating history stretching back 7,000 years. Gozo's vibrant history is flavoured with diverse cultural influences including African, Italian (Sicilian), Arabic, and British.

You can see these influences all over the island - from the megalithic Gġantija temples at Xagħra (among the oldest free-standing structures in the world), to the Maltese language and Arabic place names, to Gozo's delicious Sicilian-inspired cuisine and baroque churches, and even the odd iconic red British telephone box.

In Gozo's capital Victoria (known as Rabat by the locals), you can glimpse Gozo's Medieval past in its maze of narrow alleyways. And from the walls of the fortified Citadella you can gaze out on Gozo's tranquil countryside – standing where the Phoenicians, Romans, and crusading Knights of St John did in times past. All this drama in a small gem of an island – that's Gozo! 


One of the great things about a holiday on Gozo is that getting around Gozo is easy. In fact, when holidaying on Gozo, you have several transportation options: you can rent a car, take a taxi, catch a bus, hire a bicycle or ebike, ride a horse, or take a guided Segway, tuk-tuk, jeep or quad bike tour.  We can organise all these activities for you as part of your Baron Experience.
