SHORE EXCURSION VALLETTA and MDINA

We’ll begin our Valletta shore excursion in the Upper Barrakka Gardens, a beautiful introduction to the Maltese capital. From here we can enjoy a stunning view of the city and of the natural harbor of Malta.

Then we’ll walk downtown to St John’s Co-Cathedral, which was built by the Order of St. John, otherwise known as the famous Knights of Malta. The church itself is considered one of the finest examples of Baroque architecture, and inside houses a number of notable artworks. The most famous of these is The Beheading of Saint John the Baptist by Caravaggio, the only painting which the artist signed.

The next part of the Valletta shore excursion takes in Mdina, a fortified city which was once the island’s capital. We’ll visit the old town, the city walls and St. Paul’s Cathedral.

At the end of the shore excursion we’ll return to the port by bus.
