Traveling from Amsterdam to Malta. Recommendations and lodging info in Malta needed. Is 4 full days sufficient, and is side trip to Sicily good idea to expand time in Malta?

Sicily is such a large island with so many historical sites and sights, so much to do, so much to see there, that "a side trip" wouldn't even nearly do justice. Where would you want to start, what would be THE single one thing to visit on that day trip? The value, the experience, the excitement of Sicily is the entirety of all the sights. So, in a nutshell, if you want to do a side trip from Malta, do Gozo island.

Thanks for your reply. However, I wasn't thinking of a day trip to Sicily when I said side trip. I was thinking about 3-4 days. Your other suggestion to visit Gozo is already under consideration. Do you have any info about lodging in Malta? Thanks

Our son just spent 10 days in Malta. If you're interested in this history and culture, 4 days is not enough.
