Tour description

Your tour guide will be waiting for you at the agreed meeting point and will take you on your shore excursion in Malta. Today, explore the historic region of Malta, known as the “Three Cities”: Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea.

Let’s start with the panoramic bus passing Cospicua (Bormla) and heading towards Vittoriosa (Birgu). The peninsula is bounded northwest by Kalkara Creek and to the southeast by Dockyard Creek. Here you can take a guided walk through the many narrow streets in the shade of numerous impressive historic buildings and churches.

The next destination of the excursion is Senglea (L’Isla). This peninsula is located south of Valetta in the Great Harbor. It was founded in 1551 and named after the Grand Master of the Order of Malta, Claude de la Sengle. Today shipyards are settled here and there are many docks with imposing port facilities and a lot of maritime scenery.

At the extreme tip of the peninsula there is a military vantage point – the so-called Vedette. From here you have a wonderful view of the Three Cities and Valetta. From the old pier, you will then take a typical “Fregantina“, a small harbor boat and take a tour of the famous bays.

At the end of the tour, you will travel back to your cruise ship with your tour guide. Alternatively, you also have the opportunity to stay on your own in Valletta and later return to the ship independently.

We wish you an impressive shore excursion in Malta!
