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.
