See many historic buildings and churches that have preserved their 16th century charm. From Vittoriosa’s harbor board a traditional “fregatina” or fishing boat and tour the famous creeks for the next 30 minutes. Disembark at Senglea for around 40 minutes where you will view the majestic “vedette,” or sentry outpost at the center of the Grand Harbor.
