Valletta, Malta’s capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site, has been described as an open-air museum with its baroque architecture. The city is today one of Malta’s main tourist attractions with its bastion walls, dense clusters of worn limestone buildings, timber balconies and imposing churches. The architecture of Valletta's streets and piazzas ranges from mid-16th century Baroque to Modern. The city is the island's principal cultural centre and has a unique collection of churches, palaces and museums.

On your Valletta stopover, you will have two days of sightseeing. First up is the city itself. Enjoy a tour through the bustling streets. Visit the Barracca Gardens that have an amazing panoramic view of the Grand Harbour, St. John's Co-Cathedral, with the world famous Caravaggio painting that is on display in the oratory of this cathedral and the Grand Master's Palace and other buildings of historical importance. Before the tour ends, attend the Malta Experience, a multi-vision show that depicts Malta's history throughout the ages

The second day of sightseeing is to the island of Gozo. This is conducted as Jeep Safari on arrival at Gozo by ferry from Valletta. . Drive through beautiful countryside and valleys to the village of Qala and then on to Nadur, down to the sandy beach of Ramly Hamra and then to the quaint village of Xaghra. From here, head to Victoria, the capital city of Gozo, and stop for lunch. After lunch, visit Marsalforn which is a very popular tourist resort. From Marsalforn you head through the fishing village of Xlendi and then back to the Ferry.
