Moreover, with a maximum capacity of only 12 guests per tour, our guides ensure that you always have the opportunity to seek clarification from them regarding any inquiries that may arise during the tour.

About Malta

The Maltese Archipelago comprising of Malta, Gozo and Comino lie just 90 kilometres south of Sicily and 350 kilometres north of the African coast. They offer little natural resources but possess natural, deep and well-protected harbours and it was precisely for this reason why the different Mediterranean powers, whether for trade or for control, always desired to occupy these islands. The earliest settlement of the islands is believed to be around 5200BC, evidence of which can be found in natural caves such as Ghar Dalam (meaning Dark Cave), Skorba and Ta’Hagrat which where actually open air villages. Around 3600BC early man started to erect megalithic structures which brought about an incredible Temple building period. The main temples include Hagar Qim and Mnajdra, Tarxien and of course the largest free standing megalithic structure in the world, Ggantija. Other unique structures including the Hypogeum and the Xaghra Stone Circle indicate large necropolises catering for area communities. The Temple Culture came to an end around 2500BC. Throughout the years our islands have been occupied by a number of different civilisations. One of the earliest were the Phoenicians from Lebanon (Syria), traders who made good use of Malta’s excellent harbours. The Phoenicians were followed by the Carthaginians and during the Second Punic War 218BC Malta was taken over by the Romans. The most important event during the Roman period was the shipwreck of St Paul the Apostle as told in the Acts of the Apostles 27 and 28. Traditionally it is believed St Paul introduced Christianity into Malta. The main sites connected with the saint's visit include St Paul’s Grotto, San Pawl Milqi (Roman Villa), St Paul’s Shipwreck Church and St Paul’s Cathedral & Museum in Mdina. Other interesting sites related to Roman period include large complexes of tombs, ‘catacombs’ which were used by religious communities. Worth visiting are St Paul’s Catacombs and St Agatha’s Catacombs both in Rabat. The long Roman occupation lasted until 535AD when it finally fell under Byzantine rule, later under Arab rule and then Aragonese rule until the 16th century. In 1530 the Order of St John arrived in Malta, this was the start to a 268 year rule by the Military and Hospitaller Order of St John. During their time the Knights offered the islands security, medication and jobs. This was the start of a Golden era for the Maltese Islands. The Order settled in the harbour, in a small seaside village called Birgu. They built a magnificent line of fortifications to provide adequate defence in case of attacks such as the Great Siege of 1565 when the mighty Turkish Armada was defeated. They continued to fortify the harbour and on 28th March 1566 the foundation stone of the new city of Valletta was laid. They added magnificent palaces, theatres, churches and gardens all of which you can see today. Do not miss St. John's Co. Cathedral which was the conventual church of the Order, the Grand Masters Palace and the beautiful Upper Barraka Gardens from where you can admire stunning views of the spectacular harbour. Under the Order’s rule the Maltese Islands flourished however this came to an end in 1798 when in June of that year Napoleon’s fleet cast anchor off the islands and launched an invasion. In a few hours the Order capitulated and Napoleon entered Valletta. During his short sojourn of 6 days he issued rules and regulations which the Maltese were not happy with. In fact after a few months the Maltese rose up in revolt and asked the British for help. The French troops were blockaded inside Valletta. Two years siege followed until the French capitulated and the British took over Malta. The British took the islands into the 20th century, during which time there were two world wars, independence, formation of a republic and the closure of the British bases. The largest natural harbour in the Mediterranean was excellent for the needs of the British fleet so much so that it became its home port and major modern developments took shape. During the First World War Malta was nicknamed “nurse of the Mediterranean” but the Second World War was to be a completely different story. The day after Mussolini declared war on Britain and its allies in June 1940, Malta had suffered its first attack from the air. 16,000 tons of bombs fell on the island during the war, with a loss of 35,000 buildings and over 6000 casualties. In 1942 Malta and its people were awarded the George Cross by King George VI as an official recognition of the island’s courage. This cross is part of the national flag. After the war, the political situation changed drastically. The Maltese were asking for more representational government and a much more liberal constitution. This political work was to lead to the granting of independence from Britain on 21st September 1964. On 13th December 1974 Malta was declared a republic within the Commonwealth, thus retaining the connection with Britain. Five years later, on 31st March 1979, there was the final closure of the British base in Malta. Finally, for the very first time, no foreign troops were stationed on the islands.  Malta is a member of the United Nations and also of the Commonwealth. Moreover, in May 2004 it joined the European Union.

15 Best Day Trips from Malta

Malta is a small archipelago of beautiful islands found amongst the rolling waves of the Mediterranean Sea. It’s a unique nation to visit because the country’s geographical location between North Africa and Italy has given the islands here a diversity that’s hardly matched anywhere else in Europe.

There are influences from across the neighboring regions that all collide to produce a culture and history that is more intriguing than you would ever imagine possible, given the small size of Malta.

Equally as diverse is the spectacular scenery that’s awaiting visitors to Malta, from the dramatic coastline and colorful bays to the rustic villages and rolling countryside. In Malta, there are countless day trip opportunities across the islands that make up this Mediterranean country.

Explore the medieval streets of the capital Valletta, visit ancient temples, snorkel in clear waters, and enjoy beautiful, golden beaches in the sunshine.

It’s a great place to visit – to help you plan your trip, here are the best day trips in Malta.

1. Valletta

Valletta, Malta

Any trip to Malta needs to begin with a trip to the nation’s capital of Valletta. This small city is a spectacular mixture of architecture that encompasses many of the historical eras of Malta – from the medieval buildings of the Knights Hospitallier through to more modern defenses built by the British during World War II.

It’s an incredibly historic place and you can spend hours simply wandering through these old streets admiring the sights and attractions of the city.

Explore the city walls, visit St John’s Cathedral, and call in at the many museums strung throughout Valletta. The two harbors found on either side of the city are wonderful areas to explore too, and you can be sure you will be mesmerized by all you find in the city.

Available tour :  Valletta and 3 Cities Private 4-Hour Shore Excursion

2. The Three Cities

Cospicua, Malta

The Three Cities make for an intriguing day trip that takes in three of Malta’s most historic sites – the medieval areas of Cospicua, Senglea, and Vittoriosa.

These three cities are found close to Valletta, to the south-east of the Grand Harbor that the capital is built around. You can take a boat or ferry across from Valletta to truly experience these spectacular cities, arriving in the shadow of the huge walls and fortifications that have long protected them from invasion.

The Three Cities date back to medieval times and some areas are in fact older than Valletta itself. You can easily spend the day exploring the narrow alleyways and historic sites that are found within the Three Cities.

3. Palazzo Parisio

Palazzo Parisio, Malta

The Palazzo Parisio is found in the village of Naxxar on the island of Malta and dates back to the 18th century. At first, this was just a simple hunting lodge in the countryside, but in the early 20th century, a grand palace was built by a Marquis – and he didn’t hold back on its elegant design.

It’s a wonderfully lavish estate to visit and the sheer quantity of chandeliers alone will astound you.

There are stately rooms, corridors covered in paintings and portraits, and extensive, well-curated grounds to walk through.

4. Marsovin Cellars

Marsovin Cellars

Found in the Paulo region of Malta, on the southeastern side of the Grand Harbor, the Marsovin Cellars are a fantastic place to visit for those interested in learning more about the country’s flourishing wine culture.

The cellars are extensive; over the years, a vast collection of over 100,000 different bottles of wine has been collected and curated to be stored here.

The cellars themselves are historic, having been built by the Knights of St John centuries ago. Today, you can enjoy a wine tasting experience like no other in these medieval surroundings.

You can sample the local tastes, which are all produced from grapes grown on the island before being aged in barrels on site.

5. St Julians

St Julians, Malta

St Julians is a district of Malta that’s found along the coast to the north of Valletta. Here you can find colorful bays that quite literally start on the edge of town; while the beaches are rocky, they are still beautiful in their own way.

St Julians, while having a number of historic and natural attractions, is perhaps more famous for its nightlife than for anything else these days.

It’s a popular resort area where you can find many restaurants and an even greater number of bars catering to holidaymakers.

It’s a good place to let your hair down and enjoy a few drinks in the evening – and perhaps even a few more drinks into the early hours of the morning.

6. Marsaxlokk

Marsaxlokk, Malta

Marsaxlokk is a small village that is one of the longest continually inhabited settlements in Malta. Located in the southeast, this is a charming fishing port that can trace its origins back thousands of years.

There are several ancient temples to visit in the area, and, as well as this Neolithic era history, it’s a great place to explore authentic Maltese livelihoods.

Many of the residents are still traditional fishermen, and every weekend the village becomes the scene of a huge fish market, as buyers and sellers arrive from all over the island on their colorful boats.

7. Golden Bay

Golden Bay, Malta

One of the most beautiful beaches in all of Malta can be found at Golden Bay. This small, sheltered cove has some of the finest sand in the country and has become a firm favorite amongst travelers and holidaymakers.

Despite its popularity, it has somehow still managed to retain a semblance of its rustic past, and even though there are many hotels and resorts along the coastline here, the hidden bay itself has managed to avoid much direct development.

The scenery here is simply spectacular. You can enjoy a lazy day on the beach and swimming in the shallow, clear, and colorful water.

8. Blue Grotto

Blue Grotto, Malta

Found at the southern end of Malta, the Blue Grotto is an iconic destination to visit. Along the rugged coastline, the weather-beaten rocks of Malta have, over the years, been crafted into a series of unique caverns that are today perfect for exploring.

The best way to experience the arches and caverns is to take a boat along the shore, where you will be instantly amazed by both the scenery and the bright blue hues of the water.

9. Dingli Cliffs

Dingli Cliffs, Malta

The rustic village of Dingli is the scene of some of Malta’s most inspiring coastline. The Dingli Cliffs are a dramatic sight to see and form the highest point on the island, as they rise to just over 200 meters in height.

This is a rural part of the island; the village by the cliffs is a picturesque, pastoral place to visit that harks back to another era long ago.

10. Buskett Gardens

Buskett Gardens, Malta

When you arrive on Malta, you will soon notice that despite its unparalleled natural scenery, the one thing the island does lack is any forest or woodland.

The one area you can find that is full of trees is the Buskett Gardens. This unique area is unusual on Malta and makes for an interesting location to spend the day, strolling in the shade in the beautiful valley.

It’s so nice that even the President of Malta has an official residence on the edge of Buskett Gardens.

11. Hagar Qim and Mnajdra

Hagar Qim

This outstanding UNESCO World Heritage Site protects an ancient temple complex that includes the two expansive religious areas of Hagar Qim and Mnajdra.

Found at the far southern end of the island of Malta, these temples are a relic of a world that existed here long, long ago. They can claim to be one of the oldest known religious sites in the world that are still standing, with their origins believing to date back to at least the 3rd, or perhaps even 4th century BC.

12. Ggantija

Ggantija, Malta

Ggantija is another ancient temple complex found in Malta.

Located on the island of Gozo, in the north of the country, this Neolithic site dates as far back as the 5th century BC and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage Listing that protects the rest of Malta’s prehistoric temples.

Considering their age, the rocks and stones that form this religious site are remarkably well preserved in their original layout.

Mdina, Malta

Mdina is a former capital of Malta and is found in the northern region of the country.

The city can be traced back to the days of Phoenician settlement of the island. For thousands of years, it served as the main capital and is today an important historical site and an excellent place to spend the day exploring.

14. Dwerja Bay

Dwerja Bay, Malta

Dwerja Bay is found on the island of Gozo and is one of the most spectacular natural sites in the country.

This is where the Azure Window could, until very recently, be found. This natural arch was an iconic symbol of Malta, but in a violent storm in 2017, the rock collapsed.

You can still see the humble remains and the rest of the coastline here is equally dramatic and weather-beaten.

Comino, Malta

Compared to the two main islands of Malta and Gozo, Comino is much smaller and far less developed.

It’s a great place to spend the day if you are looking for an untouched part of the country to explore, and it’s every bit as beautiful and dramatic as anywhere else in the archipelago.

Malta Experience 7D/6N

There was an indiscretion of times for one of my tours and so I missed it completely. I tried to contact the number I was given for the person looking after me but received no reply. I then received an email and 2 x separate calls all from different people later that day/the next day to find out why I didn’t attend, but 2/3 of them gave no apologies for the mix up and there was nothing offered to compensate this. I later needed to contact my guide looking after me to confirm my airport pickup time as there was nothing in writing about this and again received no reply. The time difference meant the main office overseas was closed and so I couldn’t get through to anyone. A driver arrived but the lack of communication after attempting to make contact multiple times was disappointing. The tours themselves were interesting but much more directed at people much older than I was so I felt out of place and it wasn’t as enjoyable of an experience as I had hoped. I payed a fair bit of money for this package and my hostel was one of the cheapest in the area - a real budget hostel and in the middle of a heatwave had no air conditioning and was a 20 minute walk up a hill from our daily drop offs. For the amount of money I paid I would have expected a bit more from the accommodation. That said, the hostel I was in was incredibly homely and welcoming and as someone who enjoys making new friends in hostels this suited me perfectly. If it weren’t for the people there (both travellers and staff) I would have requested to move because the heat was almost unbearable (43°C). Overall my trip was okay - the daily guides were informative and the hostel staff friendly. However I don’t feel as though I got any value for money for my package and was disappointed with the communication overall.
