After our tour of the capital we will then visit the south west of the island where the ancient Hagar Qim Temple site stands. Tour in Valletta.

Our final stop during this tour will be to Mdina.

Mdina, once the capital of Malta until the modern city of Valletta was built had many names including Melita (Roman occupation), Medina (Arabic occupation), Citta Notabile (Knights of St. John) and Citta Vecchia (after Valletta was built). Today it is also referred as the Silent City since it inspires tranquillity at any time of the day or night. Excursion with private guide in Valletta.
