Valletta & Mdina Medieval City Tour
4 hour tour

Our first visit during our tour is the capital, Valletta which was built by the Knights of St. John in 1566. Here we include the Barrakka Gardens which offer stunning views of the Grand Harbour and magnificent fortifications, a walk down Triq Repubblika where you can admire numerous historical buildings built by the Knights of St. John including the Auberges, the Grand Master's Palace and the St. John's Co. Cathedral, the Church of the Order and also home to Caravaggio's masterpiece "Beheading of St. John" amongst other treasures.

Our final stop during the tour is the ancient city of Mdina. Mdina is built on a plateau in the centre of the island, the city's old Baroque buildings, Cathedral and magnificent bastion walls dominate the rural skyline. Mdina, once the capital of Malta until the modern city of Valletta was built had many names including Melite (Roman occupation), Medina (Arabic occupation), Citta Notabile (Knights of St. John) and Citta Vecchia (after Valletta was built). Today it is also referred to as the Silent City since it inspires tranquillity at any time of the day or night. The only way to really experience and enjoy this city is on foot, explore the quaint alleys, narrow streets, ancient buildings and magnificent far reaching views from the high bastion walls.

At this stage our tour comes to an end and we make our way back.

!Note The order in which we operate the tour may differ as mentioned above. Certain places of interest such as St. John's Co. Cathedral do not open on Saturday afternoon, Sunday's and Public Holiday's. This will be replaced with an alternative site such as the Grand Master's Palace.

!OPTION If your ship is departing later than the tour end time we can end the tour in Valletta so you can spend more time at leisure and make your own way back to the ship if you like.
