Malta’s Scenic Tour-Palazzo Parisio-Clapham Junction-Dingli Cliffs-Buskett Gardens with Entrance fees
Malta’s Scenic Tour visiting Palazzo Parisio, Clapham Junction, Dingli Cliffs & Buskett Gardens - duration 4h
This tour will take you to view some of the most notable Maltese sights, including the Palazzo Parisio, Clapham Junction, and Buskett Gardens, on a beautiful vintage bus.
Your first stop will be the Palazzo in the heart of Naxxar. The Palazzo Parisio is truly magical, and the tour will give you the opportunity to learn more about the intricate history of Malta’s nobility. You will have the opportunity to gain new insight into the nobility’s way of life, and marvel at the Grand Ballroom, the family chapel, and the stunning walled gardens.
Your next stop is Clapham Junction. The strange grooves in the rock here have puzzled historians for centuries, but some believe that they may have been ancient roadways. They are not known to be connected to the famous megaliths of Malta, but criss-cross the island on high and rocky surfaces, apparently at random. All knowledge of their builders has faded into the mists of prehistory, and modern man is left to guess at their original purpose.
Your third stop for the day will be the Buskett Gardens in the Wied-il-Luq valley. At their best when viewed in the spring, the gardens are nevertheless cool in summer and tranquil in winter. The Verdala Palace, the official residence of the President of Malta, is situated on the edge of the gardens. You can take advantage of a coffee break here to sample traditional pastizzi.
The final stop on this tour is the Dingli Cliffs, near Dingli Village. These cliffs reach as high as 220 metres and remain the highest point on the island. Here, you will find the isolated St. Mary Magdalene’s Chapel with its scenic views of the uninhabited island of Filfla.
