Starting off with a drive around the impressive fortifications shielding Valletta, built on a peninsula, we will then head to the Three Cities (Senglea, Cospicua and Vittoriosa), all dating back to the period of the Knights of St John.
Next on the itinerary is a drive to Marsaxlokk, the picturesque fishing village in the southeast of the island, brimming with colourful fishing boats. Prominent among these is the traditional Maltese luzzu with its vibrant colours. Marsaxlokk is renowned for its fish and seafood restaurants – we will have time for lunch here (optional).
Another seaside town awaits as we make our way to Wied iż-Żurrieq, famous for the Blue Grotto cave, very popular with scuba divers due to the excellent visibility underwater. The caves are accessible by boat which depart regularly from the quay, weather-permitting.
The route to Mdina offers panoramic seaviews as we drive along Dingli Cliffs en route to Malta’s former capital city for a photo opportunity before returning to the pickup location where the excursion ends.
