“The timing for acceptance in Virtuoso could not be better,” said Michelle Buttigieg. “Destination Malta is riding a wave of popularity in the U.S. It has recently been featured on several high-profile ‘places to go’ lists in 2016 and 2017, including The New York Times and National Geographic Traveler. Malta itself is now resonate with festive celebrations as it gears up to Valletta 2018, when this historic port and Malta’s capital will have the designation of European Capital of Culture. It is a great time for Virtuoso advisors to be offering their clients a new, vibrant, diverse destination to explore.”

Malta joins Virtuoso’s collection of the luxury hotels, resorts, cruise lines, airlines, tour operators and other suppliers worldwide.

“Adding Malta to our family of Virtuoso preferred destinations creates new opportunities for our affiliated travel advisors,” said Angela Roditi, vice president, Alliances at Virtuoso. “European travelers are well acquainted with Malta’s unique historical, cultural and scenic appeal, and now Virtuoso advisors in 42 countries will have access to information and training that will encourage their clients to experience it. Sophisticated travelers are always seeking out exciting destinations to discover, so we look forward to elevating Malta’s profile among our worldwide network of luxury travel agencies.”
