Walking through the bustling streets of Valletta, you first visit the Barrakka Gardens and witness a bird’s eye view of the Grand Harbour. We then visit St John’s co-cathedral, Malta’s greatest treasure! Admire the cathedral adorned in sculptures and riches dating back to the Knights of Malta. Time spent to appreciate the world famous painting of Caravaggio displayed in the Oratory. The Grand Master’s Palace which now houses the House of Parliament is visited.

Three cities tour

On the other side of the Capital City lies the historical area of the Three Cities, Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea. These cities are well known for their narrow meandering streets shaded by many historical buildings and churches. From the old quay we board a typical fregatina and tour the famous creeks on this natural harbour. We walk on to Senglea to enjoy views from the vedette which overlooks the centre of the Grand Harbour.


Whether one visits Mdina in the morning, afternoon or evening, you will certainly notice its richness with every step you take. A gentle walk through the silent city finds us looking upon stately homes, palaces and churches. As you look down from the Bastions, you will see almost a third of the island beneath you, impressive at daytime, astounding at night! Some tours include a visit to Dingli Cliffs and San Anton Gardens.
