Head south to the Mediterranean for this winter-warming festive break on the historic island of Malta. Blessed year round with an agreeable climate, Malta puts on a wonderful festive cloak at Christmas, combining the very best traditional celebrations and some glittering illuminations.
Fly to Malta, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your chosen hotel in Qawra.
Rest and relax in the hotel, getting to know this delightful area, which throws itself into the Christmas festivities every year, with its bars and cafes that fringe the sandy bay all dressed for the season.
On the first of our included excursions you'll explore Valletta. Visit the award-winning Malta Experience, where an audio-visual presentation will reveal the history of the island and its capital; the Lascaris War Rooms; the Upper Barracca Gardens; and the Auberge de Castille - former home to the Knights of St John.
This afternoon's optional excursion will take you to Sliema to board a cruiser for a fascinating tour of Valletta's spectacular Grand Harbour. The scale of the massive fortifications, wharves and waterside buildings becomes all the more apparent when seen from the water.
Today brings an opportunity for some last minute Christmas shopping, as well as an included excursion taking us on a journey back in time, as we cross Valletta's Grand Harbour to reach the three medieval 'cities' of Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea.
Day Five (Christmas Eve)
