The main highlights include;

Castille, Valletta
Valletta which was built by the Knights of St. John in 1565. The bus will stop at Castille place from where you visit Barraka Gardens which offer stunning views of the Grand Harbour and magnificent fortifications. Every day at noon the 'Noon Gun Salut' is fired from the lower part of the gardens, a spectacle worth seeing. If you intend staying in Valletta take a walk down Merchants and Republic Streets where you can admire numerous historical buildings built by the Knights including the Auberges, the Grand Masters Palace and the St. John's Co. 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.
