Embark on a scenic drive to Malta’s old capital, Mdina, one of the world’s finest examples of a living medieval city.

Once in the heart of the ‘Silent City’, your guide will host you on a walking tour through the narrow, winding medieval streets. Soak up the atmosphere of this old Arab capital, where the squares and houses are characterised by their Norman architecture. Admire the stunning views from the bastions, over the valley and the surrounding areas.

Your next stop is the present day capital, Valletta. Continuing through the historic streets you’ll pass by St John’s Co-Cathedral (exterior view only). Have your camera at the ready, as you pass the Grand Master’s Palace and President’s Office. From the highest point of the 16th century bastion walls that the Knights of St John built to protect the city are the Barrakka Gardens. From the vantage point, enjoy splendid views of the Three Cities and the Grand Harbour.
