a 3 hour stroll around Malta's Capital City


Let us walk around Malta's capital city, which is a recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. We will see among other things the Upper Barrakka Gardens, where we can appreciate the spectacular views of the Grand Harbor.

We will explore the City of the Knights Of Malta, and discover their unique story, an extraordinary past that still stands witness within the fortification walls of the City. We will walk past some of their magnificent buildings - churches and palaces. Passing by Auberge of Castille, todays Prime Minister's office, and other residences of the knights, including the Law courts, picturesque baroque churches and squares, you will hear their stories, adventures and all about the heritage they left behind.

You may wish to enter some of these sites (entrance fee paid direct) like the Co-Cathedral of St. John which houses the famous paintings of one of the old masters Caravaggio. The Museum of Archaeology, and the Grand Master's Palace Armoury are also of particular interest within the City.

A Recent Review of this tour

Trudy made my Valletta stay so much more rewarding because of her insightful tour. Her enthusiasm, passion and knowledge of Malta's history brought historic sights to life. Trudy also has a wonderful sense of humor, even though we got caught in late afternoon torrential rains. Definitely a 5 star experience.
