    What to Expect
    Leave your selected hotel on the island of Malta by air-conditioned coach and travel to Vittoriosa, the historic town originally known as Birgu. In the 16th century, Birgu and the neighboring towns Bormla and Isla defended the island when it was attacked by the Ottoman Empire. The battle was subsequently called the Great Siege of 1565, and the three towns were honored with new names, Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea, by Malta’s Knights of St. John. Today, the towns are collectively referred to as the Three Cities.

    Walk around the center of Vittoriosa with your guide, and learn about the town’s history. After exploring the streets and old battlements, visit St. Lawrence’s Church. Reputedly one of the oldest churches in Malta, the imposing place of worship is said to have been given as a gift from the Normans in the 11th century. Head inside to marvel at its ornate Baroque interior and pink-tinted marble columns.

    Then, weather permitting, take a harbor boat for a tour along the Vittoriosa waterfront.

    Afterward, travel the short journey to the neighboring town of Senglea by coach. The town is popular for its views over Malta’s main harbor, Valletta’s peninsula. Take a walk along the seafront and gaze at the old fortifications that line the waterside.

    Having explored Senglea, head back to your coach and finish your tour with a hotel drop-off.
