This beautifully renovated 18th-century wharf is also the main cruise ship terminal and has an excellent range of restaurants and cafeterias.

Birgu/Vittoriosa
Birgu forms part of the Three Cities and is the oldest fortified city of the Grand Harbour. In 1530 the Knights of St. John first settled in this area. Here you can visit the historical centre of the city which is known as the 'collachio', the area which was occupied by the Knights'.

Tarxien Temples & Hypogeum
Tarxien was the first temple site to be excavated and it offers a unique collection of circa. 3000 BC sanctuaries. Stone idols and tablets, domestic animals carved in relief, altars and screens decorated with spiral designs and other patterns, oracular chambers and riches enhance the attractions of these temples. Located close to Tarxien Temples is the unique Hal Saflieni Hypogeum. This ancient underground monument is 12 metres below street level. It consists of a network of passages, chambers and caves cut on three levels, similar to the interior of a megalithic temple. The most impressive part of the temple is the "Holy of Holies" and one of the most important prehistoric masterpieces known as the "Sleeping Lady" was also found here.

Note! If you intend to visit the Hypogeum you cannot enter this site unless you have prebooked your tickets.

Zejtun
This southern town is a great example of a typical southern lifestyle. The main piazza is dominated by the main church, however, the piazza (centre) is a hive of activity in the morning.

This quaint village which is characterized by low lying buildings and the colourful traditional fishing boats known as the 'luzzu', hundreds of them fill up the bay.

Cathedral. Valletta is also ideal for shopping and lunch. You can also exchange lines at this stop.

San Anton Gardens
These magnificent gardens are located in the grounds of the San Anton Palace – the official residence of the President of Malta. Probably the best known of our public gardens, San Anton was first laid out by Grand Master Antoine de Paule between 1623 and 1636. You can wander along paths and terraces which are lined with enormous trees, hedges, flower beds and old stone pots full of plants to any of five ponds with ducks, fountains and water lilies.

Crafts Village & Mdina Glass
Here can view the local crafts and it is also the ideal place to purchase some gift from a good selection of locally made pottery and ceramics, filigree and jewelery, cane works, wrought iron and much more. Do not miss out on the glassblowers – decorative glass made in the traditional manner by hand and mouth; also etching and crystal cutting.

Mosta Dome Church
The church’s dome is the fourth largest unsupported dome in Europe. Mosta Dome is also popular with visitors as it was at this church the World War II bomb pierced the dome during a service, fell inside the church during a service and failed to explode, this the locals hailed as a miracle.

Rabat
The centre of Rabat is dominated by the imposing St. Paul's Church which overlooks the piazza. Rabat can claim the origins of Maltese Christianity. It was here in AD60 that the Apostle St Paul is said to have stayed after being shipwrecked on the Islands. During this stop, you can visit St. Paul's Grotto and Church, the Wignacourt Museum, catacombs and Romanus Domus which is a typical Roman Townhouse typical of that period.

Medieval City of Mdina
Mdina, once the capital of Malta until the modern city of Valletta was built in 1565 has had many names including Melita (Roman occupation), Medina (Arabic occupation), Citta Notabile (Knights of St. John) and Citta Vecchia (after Valletta was built). Today it is also referred to as the Silent City since it inspires tranquillity at any time of the day or night. The only way to really experience and enjoy this city is on foot, explore the quaint alleys, narrow streets, ancient buildings and magnificent far-reaching views from the high bastion walls.

Mgarr Village
The small town of Mgarr is very popular with locals for its many restaurants specialising in the local food feast of FENKATA (Rabbit meal). There at least seven restaurants in the small piazza.

Golden Bay
Two of the islands most popular beaches; Golden Sands and Ghajn Tuffieha are located in this stunning bay.

St. Paul's Bay
Named after the islands patron saint 'St. Paul'. It was in this bay that St. Paul was shipwrecked in AD60.

Bugibba
Malta's largest tourist resort.

Mediterraneo Marine Park
Situated alongside the sea, at “White Rocks” in Bahar ic-Caghaq, the Malta Marine Park succeeds in combining entertainment with education, offering guests an insight into the underwater world of dolphins & sea lions, the dexterity of tropical birds, and the laid back but alert turtles, frogs, snakes, iguanas and spiders.
