A Spanish-speaking guide leads this tour (or a guide with a Spanish interpreter). A limited number of Spanish guides and interpreters are available in this port; book early to avoid disappointment. This is not a bilingual tour; please see Malta's Capitals Old & New for the same tour guided in English.
Take the scenic route to Malta's old capital, Mdina -- one of the world's finest examples of a living medieval city.
Stroll through the city's narrow streets and let your guide introduce you to Mdina's history and provide an orientation to the town itself. From the bastions, enjoy the fantastic view over the valley and the surrounding areas. through the city's narrow streets and let your guide introduce you to Mdina's history and provide an orientation to the town itself.

Take advantage of some free time to visit either the cathedral or another historic site pointed out by your guide. There is also the option of souvenir shopping.
Ride by motor coach to Valletta -- the present-day capital. You'll walk to St John's Co-Cathedral and view this lovely building from the outside. Also, view the Grand Master's Palace from the outside -- it now houses the President's Office.
Use your free time to either visit St John’s Co-Cathedral, or for shopping, or simply relax at one of the sidewalk cafés and watch the world go by, Malta-style.
Walk past the Auberge de Castille -- the office of the Prime Minister -- and your last stop is at the Barrakka Gardens, located on the highest point of the 16th-century walls that the Knights of St John built to protect their city. Take in the splendid view of the Three Cities and Fort Ricasoli.
St John's Co-Cathedral is closed on Saturday afternoons, Sundays and public holidays -- a visit to the National Museum of Archeology will substitute. Use of an audio headset (included) will enhance your tour experience.
