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.
Step back with us through the mists of time as we take you to the fortress of Cottonera which is widely known as the three cities, these being Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea, built and fortified by the Knights of Malta. Our morning starts with an informative drive through Cospicua followed by a visit to Vittoriosa where we navigate the narrow streets and mysterious alleyways shaded by many historic palaces and churches. Then we proceed to the old quay where we take a harbour cruise on a fregatina, which is a traditional Maltese boat, for a tour of the famous harbour creeks, a truly unique way to view the impressive bastions and fortifications that dominate the port. Finally we drive to Senglea where we share the breathtaking view from the beautiful vedette conveniently situated in the centre of the Grand Harbour.
