Malta: Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea Tour with Boat Trip

1. 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. During the whole tour knowledgeable and experienced guides will be providing you with riveting information and enhance your experience through narration and engaging storytelling.

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

Brilliant tour! Tour guide was amazing. I did skip the lunch to have extra time in Mdina though

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