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 cafés that fringe the sandy bay all 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 Lascaris War Rooms; the Upper Barracca Gardens; and the Auberge de Castille – former home to the Knights of St John.

Today brings an opportunity for some last-minute Christmas shopping, as well as the chance to enjoy an optional excursion to Mdina, the ancient, fortified former capital, with its beautiful 'silent city' of narrow streets lined by stone-built houses.

Day 5

Our second included excursion, on Christmas Eve, 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 festivities with a Gala Christmas Eve Celebration dinner and live entertainment at your hotel.

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.
