Before all else I invite you to explore one of my favourite cities on the Island, Valletta – the capital city. An open air museum, baroque design and art at it very best, a network of passages leading down to creeks. The peninsula – Valletta is set between two natural harbours Marsamxetto and the Grand Harbour. We visit the Upper ‘Barrakka’ Gardens, commanding a view of the Grand Harbour. Next we stroll fown to St.John’s Co. Cathedral, whereby we also admire the world famous work of Caravaggio. A lunch break follows before we can drive to the Three Cities, Vittoriosa, Caspicua and Senglea. We walk around Birgu/Vittoriosa through the old narrow winding streets browsing through the city which was lived in by the Knights when they came to Malta in 1530 and before Valletta was built up. Subsequently we make our way to the quaint fishing village of Marsaxlokk the place where villagers sell their daily catch of fresh fish in markets stalls or to restaurants specialising in Mediterranean cuisine.
Another enticing tour would be a visit to the silent city, Mdina. Guarded by the majestic walls, the dominating features of this charming city, are beautiful palaces, doors, door knockers, balconies, and the Slculo-Normano windows, ending our walk at the Basiton walls, enjoying a unique view of the island. We drive off to Dingli Cliffs, for a short photo stop, continuing our trip to the North part of the island visiting a couple of Sandy Beaches, Gnejna and Golden Sands. This gives us the opportunity to see a rural part of Malta, where we get to see our local produce.
Various other options include a visit to Hagar Qim Temple down in the South part of the island, which was built 3,600 B.C. The temples of Malta are the oldest free-stranding man-made structures of the precision as to perfectly frame/gage all four seasons. We can end our morning, visiting the Blue Grotto making use of typical Maltese boats knows locally as ‘Dghajsa’. Gozo, the sister island, is some 20 minutes away by ferry from the North part of Malta. In the beauty and tranquillity of Gozo, I will show you around Ggantija Temples, 3600yrs B.C., the Calpyso Cave, then The Citadel, which is the old fortified City, Dwejra/ the Inland Sea where you can enjoy a boat ride, then we can stop in Xlendi for lunch, proceeding to Ta’ Pinu Church, and finishing our day at Qala village to get a beautiful view of Comino and Cominetto, the smaller islands between Malta and Gozo.
