Our day continues with a short walk that will take us to the “Upper Barakka” gardens with wonderful panoramic views over the grand harbour and across the 3 cities of Senglea, Vittoriosa and Kalkara. From the Barakka Gardens, the tour proceeds to St. John Cathedral where we will enter this magnificent building and be thrilled with its beauty and history.

We will journey on to Mdina and Rabat where we will visit St Pauls Cathedral. We then take a walking tour inside Mdina – one of Europe’s finest examples of an ancient walled city and extraordinary in its mix of medieval and baroque architecture.

Day at leisure

Today is at our leisure where we can make the most of the facilities at our hotel including the indoor pool and spa or perhaps sitting on the terrace with a cup of coffee watching the world go by! If you fancy getting out and about then the resort of Sliema with its shops, bars and restaurants is on our doorstep.

Gozo 4x4 Adventure

Today is an earlier start as we are travelling over to Gozo. There’s no better way to discover the sights of Gozo than on this off-road adventure!

Seated in the backseat of a 4×4, we’ll explore all four corners of the island, taking in attractions such as the Qala Belvedere, Xlendi Bay, the Inland Sea and the Victoria Citadel among others.

You’ll get the chance to see some of the island’s famous landmarks. The Neolithic Ggantija Temples and the medieval magic of the capital, Victoria. We’ll also visit the salt pans and limestone quarries as well as a craft centre.

Gozo is known for its many natural beauty spots, too, and by 4×4 they’re easy to get to. Spot the steep cliffs in Sannat, Ramla Bay’s red sand beach, the famous Inland Sea lagoon and the mysterious Calypso Cave, which legend says was the setting for part of Homer’s epic Odyssey. This excursion packs a lot into one day!

Three Cities & Marsaxlokk Village

After breakfast we set out on our first excursion beginning with a drive to the famous ‘Cottonera’ region of Malta, known as the ‘3 cities’. We stop at ‘Vittoriosa’, one of the oldest localities on the Maltese islands. After a short walk along the promenade we will enjoy a guided walk through this historical city, past its main square and to the church of ‘St. Lawrence’. From the main square we will also enjoy a guided visit to the famous palace of the ‘Inquisitor’. This ancient building from the period of the Knights was the dreaded holding place for those plotting against the state. Most who entered never came out again!

From ‘Vittoriosa’, we continue further south to the beautiful fishing village of ‘Marsaxlokk, famous for the many multi-coloured Maltese ‘Dhajsa’ fishing boats in the harbour. Stroll around the port of Marsaxlokk and enjoy the free time.

Our last stop before heading back to the hotel will be the Blue Grotto, a complex of seven caves showing the true blue beauty of the area.
