The tour of Mosta, Ta’ Qali Crafts Village and Mdina, the Noble City with Transportation
The tour of Mosta, Ta’ Qali Crafts Village and Mdina, the Noble City! - duration 4h
This exiting tour will allow you to experience first-hand the sights of Mosta, Ta’Qali and the Silent City of Mdina.
Your first stop will be Mosta, a Roman-inspired church boasting the third-largest unsupported dome in the world. This 18th-century structure became famous during World War II, when a bomb dropped against it failed to explode, sparing the lives of at least three hundred people. Your second stop will be the former World War II outpost of Ta’Qali. After the war, this British outpost was converted to a village specializing in local handicrafts. Here, you will be able to witness local artisans at work. The artists here create magnificent works of art through the mediums of glass, stone, or silver. Ta’Qali is an excellent place to buy souvenirs as a reminder of your trip.
The final stop in this tour is the ancient capital of Mdina. This many-named city, which may be better-known to Shakespeare enthusiasts as Medina, is also known as the Silent City. The air of serenity that this hilltop city exudes is unmatched anywhere in the world, and the only way to truly explore Mdina, getting the full effect of its narrow streets and rambling byways, is on foot. Mdina is not only a jewel of a city, but the ancient walled city remains one of the most well-preserved examples of medieval fortifications remaining in the world. Said fortifications offer an unmatched view of the island itself.
