Malta: Mdina Highlights Full Day Tour
Join morning 8-hours tour to visit the central part of Malta, as we navigate through the narrow streets and mysterious alleyways of Mdina, also known as the `silent city`.
Today`s excursion takes us to the central part of Malta that is dominated by the ancient citadel of Mdina, once the Island`s capital city and steeped in history. Join us as we navigate through the narrow streets and mysterious alleyways of Mdina, also known as the `silent city`, that lead us to the awe-inspiring bastions from which we can take in an almost 360 degree panoramic view of the island. We leave Mdina through the Greek Gate and proceed to the catacombs followed by a drive to the south west of the island to Dingli cliffs which offer us breathtaking views of the open sea and the tiny island of Filfla. After a lovely lunch we then move on to the botanic gardens of San Anton, home to some of the island`s rarest plants and trees and now home of the President of the Republic. Next we visit Mosta and its impressive dome, one of the largest standing unsupported domes in Europe. Our last stop will be to the crafts centre at Ta` Qali where we can see glass blowing, pottery and filigree all at first hand and where we have ample time for shopping for souvenirs. A complete excursion capturing the central highlights of Malta.
