A Description Of The Tour

the medieval city of mdina

Mdina is Malta's silent city, the medieval old capital of the islands of Malta, surrounded with high limestone bastions. It is on top of a ridge with magnificent views of most across the island and sea views for defensive reasons.

With a mix of Norman and Baroque architecture, several palaces with beautiful architecture on the facades, several convents, churches and cathedral dedicated to St. Paul, there is a lot to admire. Even the narrow streets with cobbled stones, it is so quiet in contrast to everyday life in Malta.

dingli cliffs

Dingli Cliffs is actually the highest point of the Maltese islands famous for gigantic cliffs, 253 metres above sea level. A location surrounded with open landscapes and the first quiet village very close by of Dingli. A charming tiny chapel at the cliff edge dedicated to St. Mary Magdalene.

Here is the place where you can experience stunning panoramic coastal views. Many locals come here for quiet walks with fresh blowing in from the sea and sunsets all year round, which are very attractive. Many tourists are attracted here for the blue skies and great food at the two restaurants lining the quiet road.

mosta rotunda

A Roman Catholic church dedicated to the Assumption of Our Lady, built by donations and hard works by its parishioners It has the fourth largest dome in the world, an impressive church to see also from inside which is open for viewing all day.

During the second World War a German 500kg bomb pierced the ceiling, fell to the ground but did not explode. The 9th April 1942 is a remembrance day for many of a great miracle. Today you can see a similar bomb to the original cone at the church’s sacristy museum.

ta' qali

Ta’ Qali Crafts Village is very close to Rabat and Mdina, just downhill in an open large flat space, which was an RAF air-field. Today converted in several entertaining and leisure spaces. Here you find the crafts village offering local artisan works of filigree, jewellery, ceramics, and leather good.

The very popular glass blowers which you can observe being manufactured inside the factory and a shop with a great selection to choose from.

san anton gardens

An attractive garden that was once constructed to compliment the summer residence of the Grand Master of the Knights of St. John. Today the palace, built in 1636, is the official residence of the President of Malta which can been seen from the outside while inside the garden.

It is a very nice garden to visit. It has formal walkways with certain intersections are decorated with ornamental ponds with ducks and swans. A variety of palm trees, cypress, jacarandas, araucarias and exotic plants are planted across the gardens mostly by dignitaries who visited these islands over the years.
