Gozo is an island that is largely unknown to the outside world. The scenery and lifestyle provides a tranquil retreat from the frantic pace of modern life. Thought to be the mythical Isle of Calypso of Homer’s Odyssey, the charm of Gozo is apparent on arrival. The countryside is characterised by its rubble walls and prickly pear hedges bordering terraced fields .
 
Nearly a quarter of the population of Gozo inhabit the capital Victoria, more commonly known as Rabat by the local inhabitants is the main commercial centre of the island. The rest live in the other villages that surround Victoria.
   
Although small, Gozo can offer the tourist an exciting experience. The island boasts a rich history with its medieval architecture, forts and prehistoric temples. Its rural environment provides an ideal backdrop for the majestic Baroque churches and farmhouses that dot the countryside. Gozo also comes complete with a spectacular landscape where one can enjoy magnificent country walks and appreciate the serenity that the island has to offer. Last, but not least is  a  coastline  that possesses lovely sandy beaches and some of the best dive sites in the Mediterranean.

The Citadel dominates the capital and is the main tourist attraction of Gozo. This old fortified city hides behind its bastions a number of fine buildings, museums and the Cathedral Church. From the huge walls of the fortifications a breathtaking panorama unfolds, where all the villages with their dominant church domes can be seen. Situated in the heart of Victoria is the Basilica of St. George just  off the  open  air market in Independence Square. The medieval narrow streets that surround this Basilica instil a feeling of times gone by and are worth a glimpse.

The most popular summer resorts on the island is Marsalforn and Xlendi bay, where one can bask in the sun or enjoy a swim in the crystal blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea. A visit to the golden-reddish sands of Ramla is a must where one finds Roman remains and the famous Calypso Cave referred to by Homer in the Odyssey. Dwejra is home to the Azure Window and Fungus  Rock which  offers a magnificent attraction on the western part of the island.
