Located in the heart of the Mediterranean off the coast of Sicily, Malta has played host to a great many cultures -
Roman, Greek, Arab, and of course British, all left their mark on its historic monuments, architecture and ancient
sites. There are many areas for you to explore on your own, and there is an extremely efficient and inexpensive bus
system that traverses the island, which makes exploring easy and fun. There are many attractions, including the
picturesque harbour, the narrow shopping streets of Sliema, and colourful craft markets.

We stay at the First Class Dolmen Hotel, a seaside resort located in Qawra on the promenade overlooking the Bay of
St. Paul. The small town of Bugibba is just a few minutes walk from the hotel and offers a number of shops, cafes,
bars, and restaurants. The facilities of the hotel include a variety of restaurants, a lounge and bar, a fitness centre with a sauna, an indoor heated pool, and outdoor pool surrounded by stunning terraces.

Daytime activities offered by the hotel include light aerobics, wellness walks, trivia quizzes and other games.
There is live music performed nightly and a full-service Casino. Guest rooms are comfortably furnished, contemporary in design and all are sea view with a balcony or terrace. WiFi is complimentary throughout the property.

* Those joining any of our tours to Europe must be able to walk fairly long distances and climb stairs easily.

More sightseeing in Valetta, including a visit of the Grand Master’s Palace, the Armoury, the National Archaeological Museum and more.

Malta - Grand Island Tour

A full-day tour to take in many of Malta’s major historic sites. We visit the catacombs in Rabat, the old medieval walled silent city of Mdina, and the unique Rotunda of Mosta Church. Lunch is included.

Marsaxlokk

A visit to Malta’s largest and most picturesque fishing village. See the vividly painted luzzo (fishing boats) bobbing in the clear blue waters of the harbour. Very symbolic of Malta is the eye of Osiris painted on the bow of the boats to ward off evil at sea. Have a coffee by the harbour while enjoying the unhurried lifestyle of the village.

Island of Gozo

A full-day tour to the island of Gozo, Malta’s sister island, which has barely changed in hundreds of years. We will see small farms, churches, a cathedral and the citadel. Lunch is included.
