Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Malta, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your chosen hotel in Qawra.

Day Two

Rest and relax in the hotel, getting to know this delightful area, which throws itself into the Christmas festivities every year, with its bars and cafes that fringe the sandy bay all dressed for the season.

Day Three

On the first of our included excursions you'll explore Valletta. Visit the award-winning Malta Experience, where an audio-visual presentation will reveal the history of the island and its capital; the Lascaris War Rooms; the Upper Barracca Gardens; and the Auberge de Castille - former home to the Knights of St John.

Day Four

This afternoon's optional excursion will take you to Sliema to board a cruiser for a fascinating tour of Valletta's spectacular Grand Harbour. The scale of the massive fortifications, wharves and waterside buildings becomes all the more apparent when seen from the water.

Day Five (Christmas Eve)

Today brings an opportunity for some last minute Christmas shopping, as well as an included excursion taking us on a journey back in time, as we cross Valletta's Grand Harbour to reach the three medieval 'cities' of Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea.

This evening, begin your Christmas celebrations with dinner and live entertainment at the hotel.

Day Six (Christmas Day)

Enjoy a perfect Christmas day of rest, relaxation and celebration in the hotel and its surroundings, including traditional Christmas Dinner and live entertainment.

Day Seven (Boxing Day)

Enjoy a restful day, or perhaps join the optional excursion to delightful Gozo. Board the ferry for a crossing to the quaint port of Mgarr, and visit the island's fortified capital, Victoria, picturesque Marsalforn, famous Calypso's Cave overlooking sandy Ramla Bay and the fascinating 'Inland Sea' at Dwerja.

Spend a last evening in the hotel, reliving the highlights of a special Christmas.

Day Eight

Return to the airport to check in for your flight home.
