Spotlight on Malta

Group Tour | Spotlight tour 7 Days & 6 Nights Lead-in price: £1425 Current prices from: £1425

Malta might be one of the smallest nations in Europe, but its strategic position at the crossroads of the Mediterranean has allowed it to cultivate a rich culture over thousands of years. This centre-based tour goes beyond the seaside resorts for which the island is most famous, exploring instead the exciting history of the capital, Valletta; the three cities of Birgu, Senglea and Bormla; as well as the historic sites of the Hagar Qim temples and Marsaxlokk village. Highlights include driving your own electric buggy though the narrow streets, and a tuk-tuk tour of Gozo island.
