Overview
Explore the wonders of Malta on this incredible tour, taking you from the capital through historically rich towns. Imagine a picturesque harbour, cheese and wine tastings and plenty of time to visit the hidden coves and beaches of this charming archipelago.

Day 1 - St Julian's - Valletta - St Julian's
A guided tour through Malta's bustling capital will help you to find your bearings and get acquainted with this picturesque city. With a visit to the Upper Barracca Gardens, St John's Co-Cathedral and Grandmaster's Palace state rooms, you won't be short of entertainment today. For lunch, it's time to roll up your sleeves for a pizza making class on the waterfront before sitting down to enjoy your creation. In the evening, we return to the hotel where the evening is yours to explore. (L,D)
