Mosta-Crafts Village-Mdina and Valletta-Full Day Tour with Transportation and 5D Show
Mosta, Crafts Village, Mdina & Valletta-Full Day Tour - duration 8h
You will visit Mosta first on this day-tour, which is a central town known for its Rotunda church. The Rotunda, commonly known as the Mosta Dome, is the third largest unsupported dome on earth boasting an internal diameter of 37.2 metres and walls nearly 9.1 metres thick. Built in the 18th Century, the church became famous all over the country when a dropped bomb didn't to explode during World War II in 1942 sparing the lives of some 300 people.
Next up is Ta’Qali, a nearby town. Once a British WWII outpost, it has since been converted into a village for local handicrafts. Here you can watch local artisans at work, blowing elaborate glass art pieces and assembling intricate original silver filigree jewellery, among other things. This is the best place to obtain souvenirs as reminders of Malta. Next, you will visit Mdina. Built on a plateau at the centre of the island, the city’s old Baroque buildings, cathedral and splendid bastion walls dominate the rural skyline. Once the Maltese capital city, Mdina had many names including Melita during the Roman Occupation, Medina during the Arabic Occupation, Citta’ Nobile given by the Knights of St. John, and Citta Vecchia after Valletta was built. Today it is also referred to as the Silent City. There's only one way to truly experience and enjoy this city and it is on foot. Discover the charming alleys, narrow streets, old buildings and spectacular vast views from the high bastion walls.
Lastly, visit UNESCO World Heritage Site and Malta’s capital city, Valletta. Valletta boasts buildings from the 16th century onwards, built during the Order of St. John of Jerusalem's rule. Walk through the busy streets and beautiful Barracca Gardens for an arresting view of the Grand Harbour. You will have some free time to grab lunch here. Finally, you will visit St. John’s Co-Cathedral and see the painting considered one of Caravaggio’s masterpieces and the only painting signed by the painter: The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist.
During the tour you will watch the 'Malta 5D Show' and learn about the history of the islands in an unorthodox and entertaining way.
