In the heart of the Mediterranean Sea, a couple of hours away from Malta, lies a magical island, home to the ancient witch Calypso: the old Ogygia, where Odysseus spent seven years. Still to this day, landing on its shores is like taking a step in a distant past, made of ancient fields and prehistoric archaeological sites.
Gozo is, of course, sea as well: crossing a 50-meter long cave from the open sea you reach the Mare Interno, a lagoon which sea waters are simply charming.
