Over the ages, due to Malta's strategic location in the center of the Mediterranean Sea, the tiny island has swapped many rulers along with their varied design influences. Even so, you'll be transported to quaint villages where progress has not left an imprint.

The Limestone Heritage Park serves as your first prehistoric link. This former quarry turned attraction recreates the life and products that builders from the Siggiewi village have been making since the beginning of time. Here, you'll get a true sense of how man made his first enduring structures.

Next, you'll visit the village of Qrendi. If ever there was a structure worthy to be declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it's the elaborate Hagar Qim Temples. Erected in 3600 BC from gigantic slabs of limestone (unearthed in the 19th century), the temples illustrate the inhabitant's understanding of astronomy and dedication to community.

While you marvel at the complex, enjoy the stellar views of the sea crashing into the intricate cliffs on the islet of Filfla. You'll then venture to Wied iz-Zurrieq, a small village with ruins dating back to the Bronze Age. However, the main highlight is the Blue Grotto, a pool of seawater set in the center of the rock formations.

If weather permits, there'll be the opportunity to board a vessel and explore the caves and grottos in the area (boat fee not included). Your adventure through Malta's very foundation is an unforgettable, prehistoric journey for the entire family. Book this Malta tour now for your next great adventure.
