Discover the magic of Valletta, Malta´s capital and World Heritage site, with fine examples of Baroque architecture and surprises around every corner, it´s easy to see why it´s often described as an open-air museum. Perched on a hill, this fortified city has welcomed emperors, heads of state, artists and poets and is now the permanent seat of the Maltese government.
Explore shaded narrow alleyways and bustling streets and take in the breathtaking panorama of the Grand Harbour from the tranquil Barracca Gardens. Visit the jaw dropping gem of the city, St. John's Co-Cathedral, home to one of the most internationally recognised works by Caravaggio, ‘The Beheading of St John the Baptist’ (1608).
Afterwards, we take a seat for a must see audio-visual treat, The Malta Experience, a gripping and informative show, which tells the dramatic story of the islands’ 7000 year turbulent history.

Delight in the intriguing history of medieval Mdina and its surrounding area, while enjoying the silence of this entirely pedestrianised walled city, taking in the views from the imposing bastions before visiting the catacombs. It is suggested to wear comfortable shoes as there is lots to be admired.
After lunch, lose yourself in the Botanic Gardens of San Anton and ensure your knees and shoulders are covered before entering the sacred Dome of Mosta’s Parish Church.
If you have energy remaining, there is time at the end of this jam packed excursion to enjoy the local goods and shop at the Ta´Qali crafts centre.
Start Time: 10:00am

Between Malta and Gozo lies the sister island of Comino, indeed a paradise for swimmers, snorkellers, divers and walkers. It is the perfect place to escape from the heavily commuted ports of Malta.
We depart from Sliema ferries and cruise north, passing by Sliema promenade, St. Julian’s Bay, St. George’s Bay, Qawra Bay, St. Paul’s Bay, St. Paul’s Island and Mellieħa Bay to the enchanting Island of Comino.
Stop inside Comino’s Blue Lagoon for swimming, snorkelling and some sunbathing. On our return back to Sliema, we will see some beautiful Caves of Comino.
