Choose a start time that’s convenient for your schedule, then meet a guide by the main entrance to Vittoriosa. As you walk, start with an overview of Vittoriosa history: it’s the oldest settlement near Grand Harbour, and has been occupied since prehistoric times.
Stroll through the fortification of the Couvre Porte, then see the Dominican Priory and the Church of the Annunciation. Continue to the Inquisitor’s Palace, where the Maltese inquisition was held until the beginning of French occupation, take in the Colacchio, and pass the Auberge of England, once the home of knights.
Throughout your time together, the guide will share stories about Maltese history and culture, helping to bring Vittoriosa’s fascinating past to life. Enjoy time to chat as you head to the former Sacra Infermeria, a hospital established by the Order of the Knights of Malta, and see Victory Square, a parish church, the Freedom Monument, the Malta Maritime Museum, and Fort St. Angelo, a bastioned fort at the heart of the Grand Harbour. This 3-hour private walking tour of Vittoriosa concludes at the original departure point.
