Tuesday 17 September 2019: Optional Walking Tour of Valletta & Dinner at the Waterfront

Price per person:  EUR 45 including professional guide and transport back to hotel.

The tour consists of a walk through the streets of Valletta, embellished with spectacular Baroque façades which date back to the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries. Built by the Order of St John after the Great Siege of 1565, the city was intended to serve as headquarters for the Order and new capital of the country. In fact it is still the main administrative centre of the Island, home to the Maltese Parliament and the Offices of the President and the Prime Minister. 

The walk proceeds to the Barrakka Gardens, the ideal spot for all photography enthusiasts as it offers a commanding view of the whole Grand Harbour. The view spans from the industrial area of Corradino and Marsa to the Knights’ fortifications of the Three Cities (Senglea, Vittoriosa and Cospicua) and the breakwater built during the British Era. Such a view highlights some of the most significant developments in the history of the Maltese people. 

The walk is followed by dinner at the Valletta Waterfront, originally built as warehouses by the Order of St John and recently converted into a colourful dining and leisure area.

For logistical purposes please indicate the no. of persons attending this optional event on the Online Registration Form.
