Itinerary

  • DAY 1 UK to Malta
  • ​You'll fly to Malta today, and on arrival we'll transfer you to your hotel in the lovely resort of St Paul's Bay.
    Settle in and then get to know your travelling companions over dinner this evening.
  • DAY 2 Christmas Eve Three Cities & harbour cruise
  • ​Today's included excursion takes us to Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea. Collectively known as the Three Cities, all were built and fortified by the Knights of St John and offer a fascinating insight into Malta's history. Sit back and relax as we drive through Cospicua to Vittoriosa, whose waterfront is home to the former Palace of the General of the Galleys and the Order of St John's Treasury. Next, take in spectacular views in Senglea, which sits on a promontory jutting out into the Grand Harbour. We'll end the day with a cruise around Valletta's Grand Harbour to Sliema, where there's free time for some shopping.
  • DAY 3 Christmas Day St Paul's Bay
  • ​It's Christmas Day, so enjoy a relaxed day at your hotel. We'll gather for a festive Christmas lunch with all the trimmings.
  • DAY 4 Boxing Day Gozo
  • We're going to spend Boxing Day on Malta's sister island Gozo, which we'll reach by a short ferry crossing. We'll explore the Citadel, a small fortified city, and visit a crafts village during our tour of its many highlights. We'll also head off on a fun ride on a trackless train and watch a live nativity scene.​
  • DAY 5 Valletta
  • Malta's capital Valletta is all ours to explore on today's included tour. Highlights include the Upper Barracca Gardens and a visit to Malta 5D. This audio-visual show, with moving seats and more surprises, tells the fascinating 7,000-year history of the island.
  • DAY 6 St Paul’s Bay
  • ​You can spend today just as you please. Perhaps you'll head to the hotel's fitness centre, or explore St Paul's Bay in the company of your travelling companions.
  • DAY 7 Mosta & Mdina
  • ​We'll explore the centre of the island today on an included excursion which begins in Mosta village. The church here boasts a spectacular dome modelled on Rome's Pantheon, and it became famous during the Second World War when a bomb crashed through the dome but miraculously failed to explode. Inside you can see the damage caused and even view a replica of the 200kg bomb.
    Next we'll head to the medieval walled town of Mdina, where we'll stroll through its narrow cobbled streets lined with honey-hued stone buildings .​

    Back at the hotel, we'll gather together this evening for a New Year's Eve gala dinner with live entertainment.
