[AcceSs to MALTA]
Our guided tour will take you to the lively streets of our capital city of Valletta. Our first stop will be the Barracca Gardens which are built atop the defensive bastions that surround this majestic city. These gardens, built by the Knights of St.John, command breathtaking views of the Grand Harbour and the fortified Three Cities. Next we go to St John`s Co-Cathedral that brimms in riches with its contrasting decorated interior and also holds an impressive display of Baroque art, including the acclaimed Caravaggio painting that is on display in the Oratory of this opulent Cathedral. We also visit the Church Museum which has on display beautiful Flemish tapestries. We then proceed with an interesting walk where we can appreciate the capital`s buildings of historical importance including the Grand Master`s Palace.
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.
The cliffs propose a majestic sight, particularly if viewed from a boat while cruising, but also from the top - the views are breathtaking, overlooking the small terraced fields below, the open sea, and Filfla, the small uninhabited island just across. The cliffs can be seen as natural forts, since no attacker can approach the island from the West given their impressive height.
