Excellent Day

We had a good start to the tour with Malta 5D where we watched a short movie on the history and culture of Malta with 3D effects.Next we visited a filigree studio and a glass blowing shop where we were able to watch artisans at work. Our next stop was Mosta Parish and the Rotunda. The Church dates back to the early 1600's and has the largest dome that is supported only on the exterior walls and with no pillars. During bombing in WW2, 4 bombs struck the Church, one of which pierced the dome, but none exploded. The Mostin saw this as a miracle, no one was hurt and the Church was not badly damaged. The included lunch in Mdina was next and we (at a table for 6) did not find the meal appetizing. Our group was overly crowded in with another larger group on the second floor of the restaurant and the food so highly peppered that much remained uneaten. Anyway we had vanilla ice cream for dessert which was soothing. After lunch we had free time to explore the town including St. Paul's grotto and the catacombs, a huge network of underground tunnels and caves originally used for burials but used as a shelter during WW2. Next we drove to the Dingli Cliffs, the highest point in Malta with a beautiful view over the ocean. Located next to the cliffs was the Church of Mary Magdalen which was originally built in the 15th century and has recently undergone extensive restoration. The tour ended after a walking tour of Mdina, a walled city on a hilltop that was the original capital of Malta until Valletta was founded by the Knights of St. John. There was a very interesting mix of Moorish, Spanish, Baroque and classical architecture with many picturesque narrow streets. From the ramparts we had a magnificent view stretching from St. Paul's Bay and past Valletta. Our guide for the day was very knowledgeable and provided insight on the history of Malta. All in all a very enjoyable day.

Our guide lacked enthusiasm and spirit on this tour. The van was quite dirty and old and not the modern vehicle we had expected. You do see a lot of the island on this tour and it is a great value for the money. The hotel pick up and drop off is also quite convenient. If you don't mind a packed mini van, this is quite a deal. Unfortunately, this tour does not take you into the impressive St. Paul's Cathedral and worthwhile church museum.
