Private Malta Experience Group Tour

Proceed by air-conditioned motorcoach for your drive to the Three Cities area. They can rightly claim to be the cradle of Maltese history, as Vittoriosa, Senglea, and Cospicua have provided a home and fortress to almost every people who settled on the Islands.

In Vittoriosa, you will stop by the Church of Saint Lawrence, and a short stroll along the Vittoriosa Marina will take you past the Maritime Museum and give you an ideal opportunity for photographs.

Proceed to Marsaxlokk, Malta's largest fishing village and the best place to see the colorful traditional Maltese fishing boats, the Luzzus, with the mythical eye painted on their prows. The village is the islands' main fishing harbor; its Sunday fish market provides a fascinating insight into local life and a traditional industry. Marsaxlokk, with its sheltered harbor, was an easy landing place for pirates and the Ottoman Turks. It was here that the Ottoman Turks landed for an attack that ended in the Great Siege of 1565. Napoleon's army landed here in 1798, and in recent times, the harbor was the scene of the Bush-Gorbachev 1989 summit. Here you will have some free time for personal explorations before continuing to Valletta.

On arrival in Valletta, you will be taken to view the Malta Experience, an acclaimed audio-visual presentation that features the fascinating history of Malta. This state-of-the-art multi-vision technology highlights 7,000 years of regional drama in approximately 45 minutes. Afterward, you will return directly to the ship.

Please Note: The order in which the sites are visited may change according to the logistical needs of the day.
