Art and Corsairing during Knights Period in 8 hours


A must for Maritime History Enthusiasts. The Three Cities offer an intriguing insight into Malta and its history. Left largely unvisited, these cities are a slice of authentic life as well as a glimpse into Malta's maritime fortunes.

We shall start off with the high lights of Valletta, the Convent City of the Knights. Cross over by gondola boats to the hub of maritime activity.

The harbour inlets have been in use since Phoenician times: the docks always providing a living for local people, but also leaving them vulnerable when Malta's rulers were at war. As the first home to the Knights of St. John, the Three Cities' palaces, churches, forts and bastions are far older than Valletta's.
