This city is the capital of Malta, surrounded by perfectly conserved walls dating back to the 6th century. The streets of this city were carefully designed in order to channel inwards the fresh breeze coming from the harbor. It is a throbbing and vibrant city, in ferment, which represents the commercial and administrative heart of the archipelago.
Walk the streets of this medieval town today known as the ‘silent city’ whilst your guide unravels its rich history. Be shown its secretive narrow winding streets to discover its dwarfed doorways, till you reach the city’s bastions from where a stunning almost 360 degrees panoramic view of the island can be seen. The tour continues with a visit to the Dingli cliffs, known as the highest cliffs on the island. From here you can look out to the island of Filfla. Our final stop will be to the botanic gardens of San Anton, these originally being walled gardens for a palace which once served as a leisure residence for the Grand Master. A truly relaxing half day excursion in and around the old capital of Malta.
