Mosta, Ta Qali & Mdina

Welcome to the Maltese Islands. An exciting place to visit where the azure color of the Mediterranean Island meets the honey-colored limestone that surrounds it.

You will begin your tour by driving to the city of Mosta where you will be impressed by the architectural beauty of the Mosta Church and see the Mosta Dome, considered one of world's largest, unsupported, and most massive Domes in Europe. Built-in the 18th Century, the Mosta Church is located in the center of the city, and its architecture inspired by Rome's Pantheon.

Once you have absorbed the enchantment of Mosta, you will then proceed to the town of Ta'Qali. This town is located near a former WWII British outpost but was later converted to a village for local craftspeople. Watch the local artisans at work blowing elegant glass art pieces, intricately assembling original silver filigree jewelry, carving the local limestone, and many other crafts. This is the perfect place to pick up treasures that will remind you of your visit to Malta.

Finally, you will visit Mdina, Malta's ancient capital resting on a hilltop at the center of the island. Mdina is also called 'The Silent City' because of its quiet and narrow streets that give off a quaint yet very homey atmosphere. Mdina is not only considered to be one of Malta's precious jewels, but this ancient walled city is one of the best-preserved medieval fortifications. Admire the magnificent views of the entire Maltese landscape as you take some time to relax and enjoy the scenery.

Do not hesitate to book this tour, reserve your place today and be prepared to be blown away with history and beauty.

We really liked this tour. Four languages were spoken: German, English, French and Italian. The cathedral in Mosta was amazing.
