Historic Gems of Malta
Day 1 UK - Valletta - St Julian’s
Titan’s VIP door-to-door travel service collects you from home for your flight to Malta. On arrival we transfer to your hotel in St Julian’s.
Day 2 Valletta
On our included half-day tour, we introduce you to Valletta, the attractive 16th-century capital of the island and home to a grand harbour. We take in St John’s Cathedral, filled with magnificent gifts from the Knights of St John. We’ll also visit Fort St Elmo, the National War Museum and Upper Barrakka Gardens.
Day 3 St Julian’s
Today you are at leisure to make your own explorations of this charming island; or, alternatively, join an optional guided half-day harbour cruise.
Day 4 St Julian’s
Today is free or you can choose an optional excursion - ‘Times of Malta’. This full-day guided tour will include the original historic entrance of Vittoriosa, the oldest of the Three Cities; the Malta at War Museum, with an exhibition on Malta’s role in World War II and an original wartime documentary; Dingli Cliffs, the highest point on Malta; a handicrafts village with free time for shopping; and the Botanical Gardens.
Day 5 Hagar Qim - Wied iz-Zurrieq
We have included a guided half-day excursion to Hagar Qim today. The megalithic temple complex dates back to 3600-3200 BC and is UNESCO World Heritage-listed. Following our tour, we’ll head to the tiny harbour of Wied iz-Zurrieq for time to explore.
Day 6 Gozo
We’ll make a visit to the legendary island of the Goddess Calypso and Malta’s sister island - Gozo - on a guided tour. Only a short ferry crossing away, Gozo has a character entirely of its own - it is rich in varied landscapes, natural sights and historical features, with the citadel in the chief town of Victoria dating back to Carthaginian and Roman times. Lunch is included and we’ll also visit the citadel in Victoria, the Bay of Xlendi, and the Ggantija Temples - the earliest Megalithic temples in Malta that date back earlier than the pyramids of Egypt.
Day 7 Mosta - Rabat - Mdina
Enjoy an included guided half-day sightseeing tour of Mosta, famous for its Rotunda church; Rabat, where St Paul is said to have lived, and Mdina. This walled city has a unique atmosphere and, passing through the narrow streets, we admire the magnificent cathedral and the imposing bastions.
Day 8 St Julian’s - Valletta - UK
We transfer to the airport for your return flight to the UK. Upon arrival, your Titan vehicle will be waiting for the journey home.
