Day 2: Valletta

Enjoy a half day walking tour of Malta's fascinating capital Valletta. Visiting in 1830 a young Benjamin Disraeli declared Valletta 'a city of palaces built by gentlemen for gentlemen.' From the Barakka Gardens with its sweeping views of the Grand Harbour to St John's Co-Cathedral blessed with an incredibly ornate interior and the grandiose Grand Master's Palace displaying antique weaponry and suits of armour, this morning is a great introduction to the treasures that await you on this tour.

Your full day tour today starts with a visit to the Blue Grotto - an area of sea caverns on Malta's south coast with stunning views of the rugged coastline.

Next move on to the 'silent' city of Mdina, whose quiet narrow streets, grand buildings and palaces are protected by impressive ramparts with majestic views of the surroundings.

Said to be the world's second oldest manmade religious structures, the Ggantija Temples dates back to between 3600-2500 BC.
