Overview

Experience the greenery of Gozo on this historic tour of the island adjacent to Malta. Home of the rich Temples of Ggantija, the oldest free standing structures in the world, Gozo triumphs. Its rolling green hills and ancient buildings make it a terrific getaway from Malta. Take the opportunity to celebrate many of Gozo’s military victories at the Citadel of Victoria. Don’t forget to snap a photo at the stunning Azur Window at Dwerja, an impressive rock formation that continues to endure despite the sea lapping at its base. Finally, shop for some of the beautiful woolen goods for which Gozo is known.

Itinerary

The tour begins with you being picked up at your hotel by an air-conditioned luxury coach. A multi-lingual guide with knowledge of English, German, French, Spanish, Russian, Italian and Scandinavian will accompany you.

After a twenty-minute ride you will arrive at Gozo. There, you will eat a traditional lunch in a Gozitan village comprising of either a salad, pasta or soup for a starter, chicken or fish in main course, fruit or ice cream for desert and a glass of wine.

In Gozo you also get to see a multi-vision show depicting the local culture. From the banks of Gozo, we will drive to the Temples of Ggantija by air-conditioned luxury coach. These temples are renowned for being the world’s oldest free-standing structures.

Then we will travel to the sprawling Citadel of Victoria. Its austere stone architecture and canon laced interior will certainly provide an inspiring contrast to Gozo’s greenery.

Then travel to the landlocked Bay of Xlendi which has historically served as a small fishing port.

Also view the Azur Window at Dwerja. This rock and ocean structure provides a magnificent view.

Finally take some time for shopping in area markets. Don’t forget to look for the woolen goods and handmade lace for which Gozo is known.

The tour will conclude with you being dropped off at your hotel in Malta by air-conditioned luxury coach.
