Your Itinerary

HIDE FULL ITINERARY

DAY 1 UK/St Paul’s Bay

You'll depart on your flight to Malta today, where you'll be met by your Local Representative and transferred to your hotel in picturesque St Paul's Bay. On arrival you'll be greeted with a welcome drink as you take in spectacular views across the bay. Your hotel faces a private beach, and there's time for a stroll before dinner this evening.

DAY 2 Valletta

After breakfast, you'll get to know Malta's capital, Valetta, on a half-day tour. Your first stop is The Malta Experience, where an audio-visual show tells the story of the island's 7,000-year history. Moving seats, water sprays and air blasts come together to give you a truly unique experience.
Next you'll head to the Barrakka Gardens, which are laid out on part of the city's old fortifications and offer magnificent views of the famous Grand Harbour. From this viewpoint, watch the saluting battery, when eight replica cannons are fired.
You'll also have time today to visit St Paul's Church, whose interior dates from the 16th century and houses many historic treasures including a gilded statue of Saint Paul and a vessel said to hold fragments of his wrist bone.

DAY 3 Mdina and Mosta Village

You can enjoy a lazy day, or head to Mdina on an optional excursion. Heading to the west of the island, your first stop will be Mosta Village and its church, which was modelled on Rome's Pantheon. The church became famous during the Second World War when a bomb crashed through its dome, but miraculously failed to explode. Step inside to see the damaged tiles and a replica of the 200kg bomb.
Your tour continues to Ta'Qali craft village, where you can watch the art of glass-blowing. You'll also have time to shop for souvenirs before we reach Mdina, where you can stroll through the narrow streets to St Paul's Cathedral. After an included lunch, you'll explore St Paul's Grotto and San Anton Gardens.

DAY 4 Gozo

Today you've the chance to explore Malta's sister island, Gozo, on an optional tour. This day out begins with a short ferry crossing, and highlights include its capital Victoria with its fortified Citadel and the clifftop church of Ta'Pinu. You're also going to visit a traditional market and explore the fascinating Ggantija Temples, which date back to about 3600BC.

DAY 5 St Paul’s Bay

The excellent facilities at your hotel, including a choice of swimming pools, a spa and tennis courts will keep you entertained on this free day. However, the resort of St Paul's Bay is a great place to explore, and your hotel is also right on the beach.

DAY 6 Marsaxlokk and Blue Grotto

You've another chance to simply relax at your hotel today but if you'd like to see more of Malta, come with us on an optional trip. We're heading to the picturesque fishing town of Marsaxlokk, where lunch with inviting sea views is one highlight. After a stroll, we'll head to the Blue Grotto caves, a stunning natural wonder surrounded by azure waters. You'll have plenty of free time here to take in the lovely views, or you can choose to take an optional cruise into the caves themselves.

DAY 7 Three Cities and harbour cruise

A full day of exploration starts with a walking tour of Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea. Collectively known as the Three Cities, they were built and fortified by the Knights of Malta and their narrow streets are home to historic buildings and churches. At Vittoriosa's waterfront you’ll see the former Palace of the General of the Galleys and the Order of St John's Treasury. Then in Senglea you can enjoy spectacular views from the lookout situated in the centre of the Grand Harbour.
Later, we’ll head off on a relaxing cruise around Valletta’s famous harbour. We’ll step ashore in Sliema, where you’ll have time for shopping before we return to the hotel.
This evening we’re going to get together for a farewell dinner at the hotel with traditional food and music.

DAY 8 St Paul's Bay/UK

Today we’ll transfer you to the airport for your flight back to the UK.

Therefore due to the possibility of inadvertent errors we do not guarantee their accuracy. Hotels, airlines used and flight times are subject to change and will be confirmed in your final documents.

Optional Excursions

Experience even more of your destination by adding one or more optional excursions to your holiday before you set off. Right now is the perfect opportunity to do that – with everything booked and paid for you’ll have even more to get excited about and all you’ll need to think about while you’re away is having a great time.

By the way - look out for ‘Optional Excursion Packages’. For some holidays we’ve grouped a selection of excursions into a package which means you can make a saving when you book in advance.

Prices shown may vary according to departure date and are subject to change.  The full range of excursions will be detailed in your holiday information pack, sent approximately 15 weeks prior to departure.
