The excursion continues with a walk along the Senglea promenade with views of Fort Saint Angelo and the sprawling yacht marina serving as a showcase for all kinds of boats, from super luxury yachts to small traditional boats.
The Three Cities are connected by a bridge as we cross to Cospicua on foot in the direction of Vittoriosa, another charming town surrounded by fortifications.
Stroll through the streets of Vittoriosa, heading down to Freedom Monument before boarding a traditional Maltese boat for a 30-minute harbour cruise. Gaze upward to admire the sheer size and architectural precision of the imposing fortifications as the traditional dgħajsa inches its way through the marina towards Kalkara and Valletta before returning to Vittoriosa.
