4 Hour Private Shore Excursion of Malta's Capital City ( May be combined with the Birgu Walking Tour )

Valletta has been Malta's new de facto capital city since its inception in the 1570s. It is primarily the legacy of the Knights Hospitaller with a few later buildings, some of which still bear scars of WWll.

Valletta is one kilometre long with streets intersecting in a grid pattern. The upper part contains most of the shops, museums and administrative buildings, while the lower third is almost all residential. Maltese architecture is a mixture of styles, the earliest being austere while the Baroque buildings exude pomp and beauty.

At the end of the tour, you may stay on shopping or for solo sightseeing in the City and make your own way to the ship.

Site entrances are not included and some official buildings or churches might close due to official services.


The tour starts at 09:00 (or earlier if you can make it) and head straight up to Valletta which is perched on a ridge. We visit the Upper Barrakka Gardens, walk to the former Church of the Knights Hospitaller (definitely worth visiting - entrance extra. NOTE:Closed on Saturday afternoons and Sundays) and on to Palace Square.

We have time to add another museum such as as Casa Rocca Piccola, the Palace and/or Knights' Armoury, War or Archaeology Museums.
