Ideal 6 hour tour

Embark the traditional Maltese 'Dghajsas' (boats) for an approximately 30-minute trip within the harbor.

Stop at the Three Cities and take a glimpse into Malta's maritime fortunes. The Three Cities can rightly claim to be the cradle of Maltese history.

Return back to Valletta by boat for a guided tour of the Capital City. Visit the Upper Baracca Garden and St. John's Co-Cathedral and its famous paintings by Caravaggio.

Discover the Grand Master's Palace or Casa Rocca Piccola, home of the 9th Marquis and Marchioness de Piro where you'll be met by the owners of the house today. The value of Casa Rocca Piccola lies in its ability to provide unique historical evidence into the customs and traditions of the Maltese nobility over the last 400 years. You can also see a collection of furniture, silver and paintings that add to the aesthetic riches of this country.


Embark the traditional Maltese boat for an approximately 30-minute trip within the harbor.

Stop in the city of Vittoriosa for a guided tour of the city. Vittoriosa houses the Malta Maritime Museum and the only remaining Inquistior's Palace which can be both visited.

Embark the boat again to Valletta and take the continue to the Baracca Gardens and St. John's Co-Cathedral. (Visit is optional) No shoulderless tops, stiletto shoes or shorts are allowed inside the Co-Cathedral.

Continue on foot to the Grand Master's Palace or Casa Rocca Picolla. (Visit is optional).

There may be occasions without any prior notice when either the Co-Cathedral or the Magisterial Palace is closed due to official functions. If this should occur, a visit to the Palace Armory and/or the National Museum of Archaeology can be done.

At this stage the tour will end and I can escort you back to the ship. You may choose to remain in Valletta for independent sighseeing. A map highlighting your way back to the ship will be provided.
