Tuesday 4 July 2017: Optional Valletta Evening Tour, starting from Valletta Campus at 18:45
Price: EUR 40 per person (minimum number of pax 17)
The tour consists of a one hour 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 as the 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, an ideal spot for all photography enthusiasts as it offers a commanding view of the whole Grand Harbour. This 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. This view highlights some of the most significant developments in the history of the Maltese people. The walk is followed by dinner at a restaurant serving traditional Maltese food. At the end, transport to hotels will be provided for those who are not staying in Valletta.
