Half day Valletta and Mdina

Explore Malta’s historic splendors of Malta in two walled cities. The former capital, Mdina, in the middle of the island, is a medieval town whose heritage dates to the ancient Phoenicians. In Valletta, see landmarks such as the Upper Barracca Gardens, St. John’s Co-Cathedral and the Magisterial Palace.

We will start by travelling back in time and discover the secrets of Mdina, the ancient capital city of Malta. Mdina, rests in a very majestic way, on one of the highest plateaus on the island overlooking breath taking views. Mdina has had many names including Maleth (Pheonician), Melite (Roman), Medina (Arabic), Citta Notabile (Spanish) and Citta Vecchia (Knights Period). Today it is also called the ‘Silent City’ because of its literally quiet and narrow streets that give off a quaint, yet very homely atmosphere.

We will continue to Valletta, the present Capital city of Malta. Valletta, Malta’s capital and Europe’s Capital City of Culture for 2018, is nothing but short of an open-air museum. It is a living experience of Baroque architecture, a monument donated by the Knights of St John nearly five centuries ago. Throughout the years, Valletta has welcomed emperors, heads of state, artists and poets and is now the permanent seat of the Maltese government.

Dotted with quaint cafés and wine bars, this UNESCO city is today one of Malta’s main tourist attractions, hosting among others, Palaces, Auberges, Churches, cathedrals, imposing bastions and a treasure of priceless paintings. It also provides a stunning snapshot of Malta’s Grand Harbour, often described as the most beautiful in the Mediterranean.
