Itinerary

Day 1

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

Day 2

Rest and relax in the hotel, getting to know this delightful area, which throws itself into the Christmas festivities every year. If time allows, pay a visit to the bars and cafes that fringe the sandy bay, many of which are sure to be dressed for the season.

Day 3

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 Upper Barracca Gardens; and the Auberge de Castille - former home to the Knights of St John.

Day 4

Today brings you opportunities to relax, explore under your own steam, or fit in some last-minute Christmas shopping.

Day 5

Our second included excursion explores the area across from Valletta's Grand Harbour, where three medieval 'cities' reflect the island's rich history. See one of the earliest Maltese Crosses in Vittoriosa, one of the Mediterranean's oldest dockyards at Cospicua, and Senglea with its waterside houses and steps down to the sea.

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

Day 6

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

Day 7

Enjoy a restful Boxing 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. Later, spend a last evening in the hotel, reliving the highlights of a special Christmas.

Days 8-11

Enjoy a restful few days in and around your hotel today, as you recharge after a few busy days of sightseeing. On Day 10 you'll also have another chance to visit the delightful island of Gozo.

Day 12

A hugely enjoyable day begins with a journey inland to Mosta's famous church, the vast unsupported dome of which survived a direct hit during WWII. The tour also includes visits to Rabat, famous for its subterranean catacombs, and Mdina, the ancient, fortified former capital, with its beautiful 'silent city' of narrow streets lined by stone-built houses.

This evening, celebrate in style with dinner and live entertainment at the hotel.

Day 13

Return to the airport for the flight home, at the end of a wonderful celebratory break. Back to top
