Itinerary and Duration

 

  • Valletta (in Maltese, Il-Belt Valletta) (2 hr)

Malta’s capital city, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since the 80s, and the Capital of Culture for 2018. You can explore the Waterfront on foot before a drive through the outskirts of Valletta. The driver can stop you at the Upper Barrakka Gardens for some photos and a coffee. For those who are a little bit more adventurous, can go down the Barrakka Lift and get a ferry to the 3 cities.

Take note of lift & ferry fees below. 

 

Note: Valletta is a pedestrian city and hence this tour is not focused on the highlights of the capital city for this reason. If you wish to visit Valletta only, we can offer transfers to and from Valletta and you can spend as much time as you want here.

 

  • Cospicua (in Maltese, Bormla) (15 mins)

If you cross over by ferry, the driver will collect you from Cospicua where the ferry stops and take you to Senglea. If you don’t opt for the ferry ride to the 3 cities, then the driver will continue his route to Senglea and you will pass through Cospicua on the way to Vittoriosa.  Cospicua is mainly known for the docks which provided a living for the local people since the Phoenician times, but also leaving the locals vulnerable when Malta's rulers were at war. One of the main docks in Cospicua was renovated and a University is currently being built in the area.

 

  • Senglea (in Maltese, L-Isla) (1 hr)

Senglea got its name after Claude De La Sengle, the grandmaster who built it. The narrow streets hold a number of beautiful aged buildings. The driver will take you to Gnien il-Gardjola. This is a look-out garden standing at the edge of Senglea Point, giving you a magnificent view of Valletta and the Grand Harbour and the nearby dockyard. If you wish, the driver can also take you to visit the highly revered and miraculous statue of Christ the Redeemer which is located in the Senglea Basilica.

 

  • Vittoriosa (in Maltese, Il-Birgu) (2 hr)

Vittoriosa, named by Grand Master La Valette as the ‘Victorious Town’ was the first home of the Knights when they arrived in 1530. It contains many important architectural riches. The Knights `auberges' (inns of residence), palaces and churches here are older than those in Valletta.  Highlights include the Church of St Lawrence, the Inquisitor's PalaceFort St. Angelo and the Maritime Museum. The driver will allow a few hours for you to roam freely through the winding alleys of this medieval town. Apart from the highlights mentioned, you can also have lunch at the Waterfront or enjoy a train ride around the three cities.
