Description

Experience some of Malta’s most interesting highlights in just one day on a guided tour. Start by visiting the medieval city of Mdina, renowned for its palaces and fortifications, medieval and baroque architecture, and ancient heritage. Stroll through its narrow streets, which have not changed much in the last 1000 years. Leaving Mdina through the ‘Greeks Gate’, proceed towards St. Cataldus Catacombs, located in Rabat, on the outskirts of Mdina. This site represents some of the earliest archaeological evidence of Christianity in Malta. Head next to the Dingli Cliffs on Malta’s western coast. At around 253 metres above sea-level, these cliffs are the highest point of the Maltese islands. Admire the views of terraced fields underneath and the panorama of the vast open seas with the uninhabited small island of Filfla as its backdrop. After lunch, visit the San Anton Botanical Gardens in Attard, where the president of Malta has his official residence in the palace. Walk along the pathways surrounded by fountains and ponds which are inhabited by water birds and turtles. See a variety of trees and flowers from around the world The tour then proceeds to the famous crafts village of Ta' Qali. See traditional glass blowers, potters, and jewelers working on their crafts, forming elaborate glass art pieces using the ancient glassblowing technique. Browse a vast selection of authentic goods made by local artisans and craftsmen such as paintings, Maltese lace, gold, silver and filigree jewellery, leather goods, furniture, ceramics, and ornamental glass. This is the perfect place to pick up some high-quality locally-made souvenirs. The tour ends with a visit to the Mosta Church, commonly known as the Rotunda of Mosta or the Mosta Dome. Built in the 19th century and modelled on Rome's Pantheon, it has one of the largest unsupported domes in the world.
