Enough or Too Much of Malta?

Task 1

Read this post asking for advice taken from Trip Advisor.

Hi guys, need your advice :)

I'm thinking about a trip to Malta in June. As it's quite a small island, would a week be too much or will I find something to do everyday day? I'm travelling with my girlfriend, so we have quite a big range of things we're into - historical monuments, scenery, nature, beaches and snorkelling... :)

So what do you think, 7 days would be ok or make it, like, 3 or so and save time off for something else? :)

Task 2

How would you answer the post in Task 1?

Task 3

Read and see whether you agree with Graham's answer.

If you enjoy heritage and history I can assure you that seven days are not nearly enough. In that time you will only just begin to scratch the surface of this little island`s thousands of years of history. You could spend four or five days just wandering around and exploring Valletta and the Three Cities. Spend at least a week and then return later to see some more,
