Begin with pickup from your Malta hotel (selected hotels only), and then travel in a climate-controlled coach to the port. Here, board a ferry for the crossing to the pretty island of Gozo.
On arrival, travel south to Xagħra by coach, where the majestic Ġgantija Temples await you. These UNESCO World Heritage–listed temples are among the oldest megalithic monuments in the world, predating even the Giza pyramids in Egypt and England’s Stonehenge.
Explore the site with your guide and hear about the temples’ history as you wander. Many researchers believe that this site was dedicated to the Great Earth Mother, a goddess of fertility.
Continue to Xlendi Bay, an inlet encased by cliffs, before heading to Gozo’s capital of Victoria. Stop for lunch and a glass of wine at a local restaurant before visiting the hilltop citadel.
When the time comes, return to the port and catch the ferry back to Malta. Your tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
