The tour begins on the south-western coast of Malta, and the first stop is at Blue Grotto, which is located not far from Wied iż-Żurrieq and is known for its entrancing waters. If the weather cooperates, visitors can take part in a traditional boat ride that lasts for 15 minutes and costs a nominal fee. After that, we go on to the magnificent Dingli Cliffs, which offer a sweeping view of the Mediterranean Sea as well as the minuscule deserted islet of Filfla, which is located approximately 5 kilometres off the coast of Malta. After that, we make our way up the hill to the ancient town of Rabat, which is known for its historic churches, Roman catacombs, and winding labyrinthine streets. A trip to the fortified mediaeval city of Mdina, which served as the capital of Malta in times past, is also scheduled. The 'Silent City,' as it is more commonly known, has a population of barely 250 people today, yet it is home to some of the most magnificent palaces on the island, which are owned by ancient noble families. If you are interested, we will have ample time here to try some of the local specialties, including the food and the wine. We make our way inland to see the Ta' Qali Crafts Village and National Park. This area is home to some of the finest examples of Maltese handicrafts, including  ceramics, glass-blowing, and work with filigree and semiprecious stones. This is your opportunity to purchase some handcrafted trinkets of high quality. The tour comes to a close in the town of Mosta, which is famous for its basilica. The basilica is also referred to as 'The Rotunda,' and it features one of the largest unsupported domes in the world. It is included to pick you up and drop you off at your hotel or location.
