This citadel sits up on the hill, you can't miss it. Entry is free I to the citadel itself though there are entry fees for some of the sights inside. Great views over the entire area from the walls.

The views and architecture were breath-taking. Unfortunately, so, too, were the ramps--for a very different reason. They exceeded the 10% grade that is considered safe--and did so more times than we'd care to remember. The cathedral is accessible for wheelchair users by way of a...More

Yes, you can walk around the citadel at night, in fact it is a lovely time to see it, as there are no tourists around. The lights of various towns can be seen on Gozo which is also great to see. We wandered up there after... More

Reference should be ok but check with the agent. He should have given you a phone number. Or ask your hotel to check.
