Day 1: Malta - Sliema
Welcome to the Island of Malta. Transfer in private vehicle with English speaking driver from the Airport to your hotel for overnight.

Malta is a land of ancient battles and historical defeats, with stunning sites that hint of former glory days. Surrounded by sparkling waters and unreservedly generous in its striking display of natural beauty, Malta is one of Europe"s best-kept secrets. Warmed by the population"s welcoming spirit and profound cheerfulness, Malta will surely become your home away from home.

Between June and September every village in Malta holds its main event of the year - the village festa! It is a mixture of folklore and religion and is held in honour of the patron saint of the village. This tour includes a guided explanation of the parish which is especially decorated for the event. Then we offer you the opportunity to watch the climax of this festa when the statue of the patron saint, which has been carried in procession during the evening, will be brought back to the church. The statue is accompanied by the village band while aerial fireworks are let off, thus bringing to an end the week-long festivities. The village streets are decorated with banners, fairy lights and statues. This is also a good opportunity to meet and miingle with the villagers in celebration. It is an event not to be missed!

Today, get ready for a tour of Malta's sister island of Gozo! After a twenty-minute ferry crossing to Gozo, take in the uniqueness of the island, which has similar history with Malta but astoundingly different natural characteristics. Gozo, a three-hilled island, is greener and more picturesque than Malta as a result of its verdant landscape. It is an Island where time stands still, where old traditions and customs form part of the daily life of the Islanders. At first glimpse, one is sure to notice that progress and the daily routine maintains a slow pace as most of the population still follow their forefather"s trades of farmers and fishermen.

During this excursion, visit the Temples of Ggantija, (The place of Giants), the only major prehistoric site on the Island of Gozo and among the oldest & best preserved temples in the world. You will also visit the Azure Window at Dwejra, being a formation at the sea-end of the Cliff. Next, head to Ta' Pinu Church, Xlendi Bay and the Citadella in Victoria. Lunch is included with your tour organized in a local restaurant with the afternoon left free time to explore this island at your own pace.
