Malta: Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea Tour with Boat Trip

Malta: Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea Tour with Boat Trip

The Three Cities is a collective description of the three fortified cities of Cospicua, Birgu (Vittoriosa), and Senglea. The oldest of the Three Cities is Vittoriosa, which has existed since prior to the Middle Ages. The other two cities, Senglea and Cospicua, were both founded by the Order of the Knights of Saint John in the 16th and 17th centuries respectively. During this half day tour, you will have the opportunity to appreciate these unique historical fortified cities and admire magnificent churches, traditional piazzas, incredible fortifications, and architectural treasures found all around the Three Cities area. Pieces of living history kept alive by hundreds of years of preservation! We start with a panoramic drive past the city of Cospicua, a double fortified harbour city and the largest of the three cities, to reach the city of Vittoriosa, this glorious city has been inhabited since the time of the Phoenicians, but the current city dates back from the time of the Order of the Knights of Saint John. Vittoriosa was chosen as the capital city of Malta instead of Mdina upon the arrival of the Order in the year 1530. Enjoy a fascinating walking tour through the narrow streets of the city admiring and appreciating all the historical buildings and captivating treasures found at every twist and turn. Upon arrival at the stunning Vittoriosa waterfront, board a traditional Maltese “Frejgatina” (a small, carvel-built fishing boat) for a delightful tour of the colourful harbour creeks. The tour ends at Senglea, named after Claude De La Sengle, the Grand Master who founded the city, Senglea is also known as “Civitas Invicta” a name given to the city for managing to resist the Ottoman invasion during the Great Siege of 1565. The island on which Senglea lies was joined by a land bridge to Cospicua during the time of the Knights of St. John and as a result, it became peninsular in shape. From the Gardjola Gardens located at the tip of the peninsula enjoy a stunning 360° view of the Grand Harbour, including the impressive Fort Sant Angelo, from where the Grand Master Jean Perisot De La Valette led the defence of the island during the Great Siege of 1565.

This tour was an excellent mix of some time to explore at Gozo, viewing the Camino Caves and time to enjoy the stunning Blue Lagoon. Although we probably could have spent a little longer at Gozo, it was starting to get warm by the time we left so a swim in the Blue Lagoon was very welcomed. The powerboat provided a fun and fast way travel between the stops. The pick up point was also very convenient for us, being just a ten minute walk from our hotel. Some of the other tours we looked at work have required us to take an Uber/taxi for 30 minutes each way. Our skipper was excellent. We felt safe, had a fun day and were well entertained. 100% recommend this tour during your visit to Malta and if staying around St Julian.

Wonderful trip. Interesting information about the caves and lagoons from friendly captain George who gave us safe trip by boat. Friendly and helpful support of his assistent. To recommend is to book the food, it is very tasty. Duration is also ok for family with kids. Crystal lagoon worth it. Blue lagoon crowded. Nice boat, not too many people, cool sundeck with music. Great for enjoy the caves from boat, relax and chill out at the sea, wonderful water for snorkling
