See the Three Cities and the Tarxien Temples during this four hour tour. You meet your private guide at the cruise port or your accommodation with private adapted vehicle, and together you make your way to Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea.
Today’s tour heads to the Southern part of the island. The part where you discover the historical area known as the Three Cities: Vittoriosa, Cospicua & Senglea. Three villages with the picturesque narrow streets and stunning views. A must-see when visiting Malta.
A short and scening drive past Cospicua brings you to Vittoriosa. Also called Birgu. The city of Birgu was used as a base by the Knights of the Order of Malta when they arrived to the Island in the year 1530. The name Birgu comes from the word Borgo, which is Italian for “village”. In the town, you will explore the various narrow streets shaded by many historic buildings and churches.
The area around Fort St. Angelo, on the Vittoriosa Wharf, houses the Victualing Yard Complex and its ancillary Navy Bakery. The Bakery used to store wheat for the garrison’s bread and other wheat products. After the war, the building converted into the Maritime Museum. It preserves relics from the past and new acquisitions connected to the maritime traditions of the Maltese Islands.
Leaving the Three Cities behind you, your next site visit will be the famous Tarxien Temples. A group of three temples, which portray the skill and artistic abilities of the Italian ancestors. And all UNESCO heritage. The temple is accessible for wheelchair users by means of ramps and lifts.
At the end of the day, your guide brings you back to the cruise port or your accommodation again.
