Your Itinerary

Day One

Fly to Malta, meet your Tour Manager and transfer to your chosen hotel in Qawra. Perhaps enjoy a stroll before dinner at the hotel.

Day Two

The first of your included excursions explores island capital Valletta. Take in the award-winning Malta Experience, as well as major sights like Auberge de Castille - the former home to the Knights of St John - and the Upper Barrakka Gardens, from where the Grand Harbour can be viewed.

Day Three

Join today's optional excursion to Malta's smaller, greener, sister isle Gozo. In sharp contrast to its bustling neighbour, Gozo, which is dotted with ancient temples and mid-millennia churches, including Ta' Pinu's great shrine, presents a sleepy, timeless face to the modern world. Highlights include Calypso's Cave overlooking sandy Ramla Bay, Dwerja's Inland Sea, the delightful coastal resort of Xlendi and the fortified island capital, Victoria.

Day Four (New Year's Eve)

A hugely enjoyable day begins with a journey inland to Mosta's famous church, the vast unsupported dome of which survived a direct hit during WWII. The tour also includes visits to Rabat, famous for its subterranean catacombs, and Mdina, the ancient, fortified former capital, with its beautiful 'silent city' of narrow streets lined by stone-built houses.

This evening, celebrate in style with dinner and live entertainment at the hotel, and be outside at midnight to view the island's traditional fireworks.

Day Five (New Year's Day)

Enjoy a day of rest, relaxation and celebration in the hotel and its surroundings.

Day Six

Return to the airport for the flight home, at the end of a wonderful celebratory break.

Dolmen Resort Hotel and Spa ★★★★

Extensively refurbished in 2009, the four-star Dolmen Resort Hotel is beautifully located at the water's edge, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea and St Paul's islands. The resort of Qawra is a pleasant five-minute stroll from the hotel grounds.

The Santana Hotel ★★★

This excellent hotel is centrally located a short stroll from the resort's promenade and beach. There is a vast array of shops, bars and restaurants in the immediate vicinity, and the casino and the bus station that connects Qawra to the rest of the island are very close by.
