Tuesday 24 March 2015: Mdina Evening Tour

Price: EUR 45 (minimum no. of pax 17)

Mdina, the old capital city of Malta, is the Island’s most picturesque city. The tour starts with a walk through the narrow streets of this small medieval city, which allows the visitors to take in the highly ornate façades of the palazzi belonging to the most important Maltese noble families. The oldest palazzo, Palazzo Santa Sofia, dates back to the 15th century. Dominating the city is the imposing Cathedral built by the famous Maltese architect Lorenzo Gafá. The dome of this sacred building was Gafa’s masterpiece and is now considered as one of the symbols of the city.

The walk leads to the bastions, one of the highest points in the area, from where visitors can admire a panoramic view of the Island. Overlooking the whole area, it is easy to understand why the medieval soldiers used this part of the city as look-out post in order to intervene should there be attacks in the surrounding areas.

The walk is followed by dinner in one of Mdina’s exquisite restaurants.

 

This tour can be booked on the online registration form
