Historic Gems of Malta Overview

Merhba - or welcome - to Malta, the island of enchantment. Echoes of a long and glorious history abound in this sun-soaked Mediterranean gem, from the medieval walled city of Mdina to the splendid capital city, Valletta, built by the Knights of St John both as a fortress and a spectacular architectural celebration of their defeat of the besieging Ottoman Turks in 1565. 

Historic Gems of Malta Itinerary

Day 1 London - Valletta - St Julian’s

Titan’s VIP Home Departure Service® collects you from home, for your journey to London Gatwick or Heathrow Airport and a direct, scheduled Air Malta flight to Malta. On arrival we will be transferred to your hotel in St Julian’s - the Radisson Blu (5T).

Day 2 Valletta

On your first day we introduce you to Valletta, the attractive 16th century capital of the island and home to a grand harbour. On our included half-day tour, we take in St John’s Cathedral.

Day 3 St Julian’s

Today you are at leisure to make your own explorations of this charming island; or, alternatively, join an optional guided half-day harbour cruise.

Day 4 St Julian’s

Another day at leisure; or join an optional guided full-day tour to the Island of Gozo - the legendary island of the Goddess Calypso and Malta’s sister island. Only a short ferry crossing away, Gozo has a character entirely of its own - it is rich in varied landscapes, natural sights and historical features, with the citadel in the chief town of Victoria dating back to Carthaginian and Roman times. This full-day excursion, including lunch, will visit the Azure Window at Dwejra, the citadel in Victoria and the Bay of Xlendi.

Day 5 Hagar Qim - Blue Grotto

We have included a guided half-day excursion to Hagar Qim and Blue Grotto viewpoint today. The megalithic temple complex of Hagar Qim dates back to 3600-3200 BC and is UNESCO World Heritage-listed. At the Blue Grotto viewpoint we see the collection of sea caverns which, at certain times of the day, mirror the phosphorescent colours of the underwater flora or show a deep dark shade of blue.

Day 6 Mosta - Rabat - Mdina

Enjoy an included guided half-day sightseeing tour of Mosta, Rabat and Mdina, this morning. The walled city of Mdina has a unique atmosphere and, passing through the narrow streets, we admire the magnificent cathedral and the imposing bastions. This afternoon there is an optional guided visit to St Paul’s catacombs and Roman Domus.

Day 7 St Julian’s

Today remains free, or there is a further optional full-day guided excursion - ‘Times of Malta’; visit the original historic entrance of Vittoriosa, the older from the Three Cities; the Malta at War Museum combines an attractive exhibition about the Second World War in Malta along with the viewing of an original wartime documentary; make a visit to the Handicrafts Village, with free time for shopping, followed by the Botanical Gardens and a drive along Dingli Cliffs, the highest point on Malta, for spectacular views of the south-western coast of the island.

Day 8 St Julian’s - Valletta - London

We transfer to Malta Airport for a direct, scheduled Air Malta flight to London Gatwick or Heathrow Airport. On arrival you will be met and guided to your Titan vehicle, for the journey home.
