Meet a driver at your hotel for morning departure, then board a vintage bus towards the first stop of the day, the Palazzo Parisio. Learn about Malta’s historic nobility while touring the elegant palace, where you’ll find an ornate ballroom, a family chapel, walled gardens, and an orangery.
From the palace, continue to Clapham Junction, or Misrah Ghar il-Kbir, a mysterious prehistoric site with deeply gouged rocks, and no words or pictures as clues to the former inhabitants. Next, drive to Buskett Gardens, where you’ll find a pretty forest in a fertile valley, with fruit trees scattered among deciduous varieties.
Before continuing to the final stop of the day, pause for coffee and a traditional savory pastizzi, then head to the Dingli Cliffs. Take in the 17th-century chapel of St. Mary Magdalene, with dramatic views to the uninhabited island of Filfla, then begin the return trip to your original departure point.
