Day 3 Historical Towns - Valletta and Birgu Day Tour

Today head out on a day tour of Valletta and Birgu. Malta’s capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site, Valletta is nothing short of an open-air museum. Throughout the years, the city has welcomed emperors, heads of state, artists and poets and is now the permanent seat of the Maltese government. Draped with baroque architecture left behind by the Knights of St John, Valletta is a historic jewel.

Dotted with quaint cafes and wine bars, the city is today one of Malta’s main tourist attractions. During the tour the guide will walk you around Valletta to see the following sites: Upper Barrakka, Saluting Battery, Auberge de Castille, and St John’s Co-Cathedral. After you may enjoy some free time for lunch (not included).

After lunch you will then head down to the waterfront to board the Maltese Dghajsa (traditional water taxi) and enjoy a 30-minute harbour cruise before docking in one of Malta’s famous fortified Three Cities, Birgu. The Three Cities is a collective description of the three fortified cities of Birgu, Senglea and Cospicua in Malta. The oldest of the Three Cities is Birgu, which has existed since the Middle Ages. The other two cities, Senglea and Cospicua, were both founded by the Order of Saint John in the 16th and 17th centuries. The Three Cities are enclosed by the Cottonera Lines, along with several other fortifications. On arrival in Birgu, enjoy a walking tour of this ancient town, before transferring back to your hotel at the end of the day for an evening at leisure.

At the bottom of the hill, only 500m away, lies another remarkable temple site, Mnajdra, found above the Southern cliffs. The surrounding landscape is typical Mediterranean scrubland - spectacular in its starkness and isolation. The next stop is the Blue Grotto, which are several sea caverns on the southern coast of Malta, west of the Wied iz-Żurrieq harbor. It is located right across the small uninhabited islet of Filfla. Every day from sunrise until about 13:00 a unique sight can be observed here. The location of the cave, combined with the sunlight, lead to the water mirroring showing numerous shades of blue. Several caverns mirror the brilliant phosphorescent colours of the underwater flora; other caverns show a deep dark shade of blue. The Blue Grotto is a popular destination for tourists on the island of Malta. It was also used for a scene of the 2004 film Troy, starring Brad Pitt. You will have the opportunity to take a boat trip around the caves (subject to weather conditions) which is not included and costs approx. €10 per person.

The island of Gozo has long been associated with Ogygia, the island home of the nymph Calypso in Homer's Odyssey. In that story, Calypso, possessed of great supernatural powers, and in love with Odysseus, holds him captive for several years, until finally releasing him to continue his journey home.

This morning you will be collected from your hotel and transferred to the ferry terminal to board the boat to Gozo (approx. 20 min sailing).

Day 6 Malta Free Day

Optional Activity: Mdina City Tour - $180 per person
Approximately 10km from Valletta, Mdina is the old capital of Malta whose earliest inhabitants date back to 4000 BC. The fortified and walled town is known as the ‘Silent City’ due to its quiet and narrow streets. Commanding a magnificent view of the Island, Mdina maintained a strategic position due to its central location, the highest point on the island, and its distance from the sea. Currently only city residents are allowed to bring their cars within the city gates, which lead to the calming effect described by many visitors. Mdina is a pedestrian’s paradise.

Enjoy a guided walk through the city and visit its most famous site, the iconic St. Paul's Cathedral. The Metropolitan Cathedral of Saint Paul is a Roman Catholic cathedral, dedicated to St. Paul the Apostle. The cathedral was founded in the 12th century, and according to tradition it stands on the site of where Roman governor Publius met Saint Paul following his shipwreck on Malta. The original cathedral was severely damaged in the 1693 Sicily earthquake; it was dismantled and rebuilt in the Baroque style to a design of the Maltese architect Lorenzo Gafà between 1696 and 1705. The cathedral is regarded as Gafà's masterpiece.

Its remains and the finds from the excavations there have thrown much light on the evolution of human society in this key region. Since only part of the site has been excavated, it forms an exceptional archaeological reserve for future study.

Phinikoudes Beach is situated in the centre of the coastal promenade in Larnaca and was named after the small palm trees (phinikoudes) which were planted there in 1922 and which now days have grown into big trees. The palm trees are spread throughout the main road and contribute to the already beautiful scenery. The area is very popular for its cafes, bars, restaurants and is in front of the main shopping centre of Larnaca. Then visit, St. Lazaros church. Located in its own square in the town centre, the magnificent stone church of Agios Lazaros is one of the most remarkable examples of Byzantine architecture in Cyprus and lies over the tomb of the saint.

To walk through the old city is to step backwards in time.

Visa rules may have changed since Covid-19. 
Some countries and airlines may also require you to obtain an additional visa prior to arrival. Please check with the nearest embassy, consulate or immigration department of the destination you're entering.
Please note: Passengers who are not Australian citizens must also check with the respective consulate or visa agency to determine what their visa requirements are and what personal identification is required.
It is also important to note that some areas of employment such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations may have additional restrictions in applying for Visas. This may in turn affect the type of application required.
