Full description
Take part in a city tour of Valletta, Malta's capital city. Valletta is known for its vast and varied history, and contains buildings from the 16th Century onwards that were built during the rule of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem.

The city is essentially Baroque in character, with elements of Mannerist, Neo-Classical, and modern architecture, though World War II left major scars on the city.

Now you can visit this beautiful historic city as you explore the Baroque palaces, gardens, and churches that led to the ruling houses of Europe to give the city its nickname Superbissima – meaning most proud.

During the tour you will walk through the bustling streets leading towards Barracca Gardens. Here you can experience breathtaking panorama of the Grand Harbour. You will then visit St. John's Co-Cathedral, where you will see the painting 'The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist' by Caravaggio, considered one of Caravaggio's masterpieces and the only painting signed by the painter.

You will then watch the Malta Experience Show, which will help you discover the Island and learn about Malta's amazing history. Free time will be available for shopping.
