Description

Leaving Valletta, we’ll head to Cirkewwa where we’ll catch a ferry for Gozo. Although it is part of Malta, this island is more rural and is known for its scenic hills. We’ll arrive in Mgarr Harbor and head towards Xaghra, home to the Ggantija megalithic temples. These two giant temples are the oldest of the temples of Malta, and date back to between 3600-2500 BCE, making them older than both Stonehenge and the pyramids of Egypt. We’ll then visit the laid-back city of Victoria—also known as Rabat to the locals—and its gorgeous cathedral (exteriors only) dominating the view on the hill. We’ll enjoy lunch during our excursion. After, we’ll discover remains of the Azure Window, a 92-foot (28 m) limestone natural arch that collapsed completely in March 2017, as well as the bay of Xlendi. We’ll return to the large island of Malta by ferry.
