What to Expect
This city sightseeing bus tour will help you to discover Gozo – one of the most untouched islands in the Mediterranean. Explore its picturesque and tranquil towns and villages, where life has barely changed for hundreds of years and many traditions are still upheld.
This new open-top bus tour of Gozo starts from the picture postcard Mgarr Harbor. The route takes about 2 hours with 10 stops, visiting all the major attractions that this beautiful island has to offer. Hop on and off at your leisure at conveniently located stops along the route. On one side of Mgarr Harbor is Fort Chambray, built by the Knights of St. John in 1749, which majestically and defiantly guards the harbor from its vantage point, while the church dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes is a prominent landmark overlooking the harbor.
Enjoy 360 degree panoramic views from the top deck of an open top bus. Hop off at the capital of Victoria, with its famous Citadel which has been at the heart of the island’s activities since Neolithic times and has been aptly called the crown of Gozo. Lying precisely in the center of the island, Victoria is the island’s most populated area. Tide the bus to Republic Street, the main street flanked by shops, banks, and restaurants. Here you can dine, watch a performance in one of the theaters, or take the opportunity to buy souvenirs. Take timeout at the Bishop’s Chancery, Il-Mall, or Rundle Gardens, an oasis of peace in the center of the busy town that houses a variety of local and imported trees.
The sightseeing bus tour of Gozo visits the fascinating and ancient Ggantuja Temples and Fungus Rock. Hop off at Dwejra and experience the most popular attraction – the Azure Window. This is a monumental limestone archway created by thousands of years of sea erosion. For such a small island, Gozo has a high concentration of churches including the famed Xewkija Rotunda Church, which has a capacity of 3000 – enough to hold the entire population of Xewkija village.
