'''Gozo''' is an island of the [[Malta|Maltese archipelago]] in the Mediterranean Sea. Smaller, more remote and less built-up than Malta itself, it is a popular destination in its own right, particularly for more mature British and German couples. With pretty if unspectacular countryside, and interesting churches alongside historic fortifications and megalithic temples it makes a good excursion from Malta and an even better destination for a relaxed short break.
==Get in==
There is the [ ferry] from [[Ċirkewwa]] on Malta to [[Mġarr]], Gozo's main harbor. It departs every 45 minutes in the summer and almost as often in the winter. The trip there is free, but going back to Malta costs €4.65. Bus stop is stops are outside the ferry terminalterminals, and it is synchronized with the ferry arrivals and departures .The bus ride to [[Victoria (Malta)|Victoria]] takes around 20 minutes. On the Malta side, buses run from Valetta's bus terminus to Cirkewwa taking about 75 minutes. There are plans to build a small airport on the beautiful and unspoilt Ta' Cenc cliffs of this tiny island, but hopefully someone will realize that the main airport, which already stretches across almost a quarter of Malta itself, is more than enough.
