Malta: Highlights of Malta & Mdina Full Day Tour with Lunch

1. Malta: Highlights of Malta & Mdina Full Day Tour with Lunch

Experience some of Malta's most interesting highlights in just one day on a guided group tour. Discover the medieval city of Mdina, St. Cataldus Catacombs, and Mosta Rotunda. Stroll through the San Anton Botanical Gardens, take in sea views from Dingli Cliffs, and buy glass from local craftspeople. After hotel pickup, start your tour with the ancient city of Mdina, renowned for its opulent palaces, fortifications, architecture, and ancient heritage. Stroll through the narrow streets of the island's old capital, taking in one of Europe's finest examples of an ancient walled/fortified city. Take a journey back in time, as the streets have not changed much in the last 1,000 years. Admire the magnificent palazzos and churches in the city's unique mix of medieval and Baroque styles, as well as the spectacular panoramas from the high bastion walls. Leave Mdina through the Greeks Gate. Head to St. Cataldus Catacombs, in Rabat, on the outskirts of Mdina. Discover the catacombs, which were originally a Punic burial shaft, and some of the earliest archaeological evidence of Christianity in Malta. See graves that are beautiful examples of canopied tombs and others hewn in the rocks. Continue to Dingli Cliffs, off the village of Dingli on Malta's western coast, the highest point of the Maltese island at around 253m above sea level. Enjoy breathtaking views over the terraced fields underneath and the panorama of the vast open seas with the small uninhabited island of Filfla. After lunch, visit the San Anton Botanical Gardens, built in the early 17th century by Grand Master Antoine de Paule to complement his summer residence: San Anton Palace, located at the perimeter of the gardens, now serving as the residence of the Maltese President. Next, stop at the Ta' Qali Craft Village, a former British Royal Air Forces wartime airfield restored into a local artisan hub. Watch local craftsmen form elaborate glass art using ancient glassblowing techniques. Get some genuine locally made mementos to remind you of your visit to Malta. End your tour with Malta's largest church, the Sanctuary Basilica of the Assumption of Our Lady, commonly known as the Mosta Rotunda or Mosta Dome. Built between 1833 and the 1860s to Neoclassical designs, the present church is based on the Pantheon in Rome. Discover its dome, the third largest unsupported dome in the world. Finally, return to your hotel.

What people are saying about Mosta

This is the second time that I booked this activity. The pick up was smooth. The tour was nicely organized in order to make sure that the tourists are at ease. The coordination from pick ups, transfer to speed boats, to the cars, back to speed boats and then drop off to the hotel was perfect! The lunch that was served as a part of the tour was also nice [except for the vegetarian option - please serve something better than just potatoes and salad ;)]. The person who drove us around Gozo (Mr. Goe Keegne - apologies if the name is incorrect) was very nice and helpful. He showed us around the places and told us some history about Gozo. One of the best ways to cover Gozo in a day from Malta.

fantastic tour of Gozo with an exceptional company. very friendly and everything is so organised. We had great fun our trip was brilliant because of our driver Joe Keegan. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. very friendly a credit to your tours thanks Joe.

Great trip. Everything was smooth. People were nice. Lunch was ok. Guide was great, car also. In winter take your windjacket with you. Superb way to explore the Gozo island. Definetly buy the boat trip, 4 euro per person, to cliffs with pink coralls

We had a great day exploring Gozo! Lovely lunch, knowledgeable guides and a nice group!
