Tour Overview
The first stop is at VITTORIOSA, one of the three cities and the place where the Knights of St. John first set foot when they arrived in Malta in 1530. This old fortified city lies on the south east of the Grand Harbour and is also house to Fort St. Angelo. The tour continues to the cave of Ghar Dalam, (Cave of Darkness) a prehistoric site renowned for its Palaeontology, archaeology and ecology importance. The animal bones found within are evident proof that Malta was once linked to Sicily and to mainland Europe by a land bridge. Marsaxlokk, a quaint village with colourful boats, active fishermen and an open market concludes this tour.
