Get away from the main island of Malta in search of sea and sunshine on this tour from Bugibba. Visit the Crystal Lagoon (if traveling in June-October), followed by the Blue Lagoon on Comino for swimming and snorkeling. From here, continue to Gozo Island, where you have the choice of enjoying free time at your leisure or taking a tour of the island's historic sites before cruising back to Bugibba via the Santa Maria pirate caves.

Within the walls of the citadel, you'll find a gunpowder magazine used in the 18th century. There's also an impressive silos used for the storage of grain in the 17th century. The shelter is the "newest" - it was one of 20 built in Rabat during WWII. There are five tiny rooms and were used by some local families. When you get out from the corridor where the shelters are located, you reach a balcony with a view - former lower battery of the citadel. Generally, it's an interesting exhibit with good explanation. As I remember it was free to visit.

This was an unexpected find while wandering the Citadel. The exhibit is immersive and informative. The video and exhibits are helpful to provide context and information about the magazine, the battery, cisterns and the unofficial shelters. Worth checking out if you're in the area and there is not an additional charge to see it. If you aren't afraid of close quarters and want a unique view, enter the cisterns. Images can't capture the experience.

This doesn't seem advertised much but you will stumble across it as you wander the Cittadella. It isn't very big but has so much interesting things. The gun battery stuck out on a platform from the Cittadella...the narrow passages and old WW2 refuges...and then the walk through to the silos. So very interesting and what's more....it's free.

This is an excellent place to go as it's enjoyable and free. A young employee Preistley, who was very knowledgeable and friendly, personally told us all about the history and showed us around. His passion towards the history and the area made it interesting. I recommend! However, to reach the place you have to walk up a steep hill and loads of steps.

The silos were awesome. Like a cave with echoes but so weird in a lovel way. Definitely worth to visit.The shelters are so tiny I couldn`t imagine to stay there.
