Tour North Malta by private taxi
St Pauls Catacombs
Mosta Rotunda

Tour Overview

This tour focuses mainly on the northern part of the island. It includes a bit of everything; local heritage, the roots of Christianity in Malta and also a little bit of medieval Malta.



Itinerary and Duration


  • Mosta Rotunda – Mosta (30 mins)

The Mosta Dome is the third largest rotunda dome in the world. This church is famous for its survival during the Second World War when a 200kg bomb fell through the dome without exploding. All the 300 people attending morning mass were left unharmed. The original bomb was removed and a replica is now on display inside the church as a famous tourist attraction.


  • San Anton Palace & Garden – Attard (30 mins)

San Anton Palace is the residence of the Maltese President and is surrounded by one of the most beautiful gardens in Malta with a large variety of beautiful flowers and plants. The palace can be viewed from the garden.


  • Ta Qali Crafts Village – Ta’ Qali (1 hr)

Here you can find different kinds of crafts and beautiful artefacts created by local experts. You can watch the craftsmen blowing and forming glass, visit the goldsmith’s filigree and beautiful jewellery and have a look at the beautiful sculptures and lace. Find that special souvenir to take back home to remember your holiday in Malta.


  • St Paul’s Grotto & St Paul’s & St Agatha’s Catacombs – Rabat (1 hr)

The largest and earliest archaeological evidence of Christianity in Malta. These were used in Roman times to lay the dead to rest, as the Romans thought it unhygienic to bury the dead in the city. According to tradition, St Paul stayed here during his three months in Malta, when he was shipwrecked on the island in 60 AD. The martyr St Agatha is said to have hidden in these catacombs during the persecution of the Christians by the Roman Emperor Decius in 249 AD. From the Grotto you can also take a set of stairs leading under the road to the Second World War air raid shelters and Wignacourt Museum.  Take some time to visit the Church of St Paul that is built on top of the grotto. Visit to the grotto is not applicable to tours booked on a Sunday.

Take note of entrance fees below.


  • The Silent City – Mdina (1.5 hr)

The old capital of Malta, nicknamed as the ‘Silent City’ for the silence one can find in this pedestrian fortified city. You have two hours to roam freely and get lost in the maze of alleys. There are a number of attractions one can find here such as the Cathedral and the 360 degree view from the bastions.
