Geography Now! Malta

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

It's Catholic, Arabic, French and Italian—in short, Malta's identity is a complex amalgamation of its historical influences. The island archipelago off the coast of Italy is so scenic, it's regularly used for filming television shows and movies. UNESCO says it's the most concentrated historical area of the world. A video resource showcases all of the country as it explores the nation's culture, language, and geographical features.
