10. St John's Co-Cathedral
St. Johns Co-Cathedral, located in Valletta, was built by the Knights of Malta between 1573 and 1578. The Church was designed by the Maltese military architect Glormu Cassar who designed several of the more prominent buildings in Valletta. The church is considered to be one of the finest examples of high Baroque architecture in Europe and one of the world's great cathedrals.
9. Hal Saflieni Hypogeum
The Hypogeum of Paola, Malta, literally meaning underground in Greek, is a subterranean structure dating to the Saflieni phase (3000-2500 BC) in Maltese prehistory. Thought to have been originally a sanctuary, it became a necropolis in prehistoric times and the remains of more than 7,000 individuals have been found. It is the only known prehistoric underground temple in the world.
8. Vittoriosa's Backstreets
The historic Vittoriosa Waterfront contains the former Palace of the General of the Galleys and the Order of St John's treasury. The area was refurbished in the early 2000s, and both buildings are used for other activities: the former is now a casino, while the latter is home to the Malta Maritime Museum.
Comino is an island of the Maltese archipelago between the islands of Malta and Gozo in the Mediterranean Sea, measuring 3.5 square kilometres in area. Named after the cumin seed that once flourished in the Maltese islands, Comino is noted for its tranquility and isolation. It has a permanent population of only four residents.
6. Hagar Qim & Mnajdra Temples
Ħaġar Qim is a megalithic temple complex found on the Mediterranean island of Malta, dating from the Ġgantija phase (3600-3200 BC). The Megalithic Temples of Malta are among the most ancient religious sites on Earth, described by the World Heritage Sites committee as unique architectural masterpieces.
5. Mdina & Rabat
L'Mdina means fortified place in Arabic and was first created as such by the Romans when they separated it from the rest of the town which became Rabat and fortified it. This place was already the principal settlement of Malta however since Phoenician times and hence can claim a heritage of 3000 years.
4. Sunday Lunch in Marsaxlokk
Marsaxlokk is a picturesque fishing village on the south-east side of Malta, it has an ancient history being the site of a Roman temple dedicated to the goddess Juno, but no ancient remains are visible. It is rare as a Maltese seaside village in that it has no modern buildings such as hotels spoiling it and none of the traditional housing has as of yet been destroyed to make way for prefab rental apartments. On Sundays there is a fish market where one can get the best fish available, a particular local favourite is the Lampuki.
Victoria is the capital of Gozo. Victoria is the name given in 1897 by the British government on the occasion of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, at the request of the Bishop of Malta, Mons. Sir Pietro Pace. However Gozitans still often refer to it by its old name, Rabat. The area around Victoria, situated on a hill near the centre of the island, has been settled since Neolithic times.
Valletta is the capital of the island nation of Malta. A harbour city, Valletta preserves much of its 16th century architectural heritage built under the Hospitallers. Valletta was one of the earliest sites inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. Referred to colloquially as Il-Belt (The City), it takes its name from its founder, Grandmaster Jean Parisot de la Valette.
1. Azure Window, Dwejra
The Azure Window is a Limestone natural arch on the Maltese island of Gozo. It is situated near Dwejra Bay on the Inland Sea. The formation, which was created after two limestone sea caves collapsed, is popular with scuba divers. The Azure Window is made of a Maltese limestone known as Globigerina. This is the second oldest rock found on the islands covering almost 70% of its area.

~MALTA~ Gozo Island Tour 2018
Hey everyone :) Today we are doing something very different, we are going to an island tour to the island of Gozo :) Gozo is an island part of the islands of Malta and is found to the north. We start off at Cirkewwa Harbour at Mellieha in Malta to board the ferry that takes you to Gozo. The ferrytrips are only 30 minutes long and work 24 hours.
We arrive to Gozo and exit the Gozo ferry terminal and then we explore the harbour and the village of Ghajnsielem. We see spectacular views of the sea and port there. After we go to the city of Victoria or as known by locals ''Rabat'' ( No connection to Rabat in Malta btw ) and go to the shopping centers, the busy streets and then we go to a beautiful public garden. After we go up the main road to the Piazza known as ''It- Tokk'' and explore the village core adorned by St George's Basilica in the middle of the narrow streets and cafes. We continue go up the hill and enter the stunning Cittadella. The Cittadella is a historic fortified city dating as back as 1241. We explore the narrow streets and go to the piazza adorned with the huge Cathedral of Santa Maria and we also check out the beatiful interior. We go around the bastions and end up to a stunning view of Gozo and parts of Malta from the bastions. Next we go to the quiet tiny but stunning village of Zebbug ( No connection to Zebbug in Malta btw ). This village has incredible views of the sea and has a small piazza adorned with the beautiful parish church and has two restuarants. We go down the road to the touristic seaside village of Marsalforn. This village is a popular summer residence among locals and tourists. Here you find a beach, restuarants, shops, clubs and hotels. We then go to the popular Catholic religious site of Ta' Pinu, found a near the village of Gharb. This Basilica is popular for the visions of Our Lady from the titular painting back in 1883. Today devotion is among catholics across the world. The titular painting was crowned by Pope Saint John Paul II in May 1990. Our final stop is at the touristic village of Xlendi which is popular by locals and tourists. The village has many summer apartments, bars, small guesthouses and hotels. Xlendi is also popular for the seaside cliffs and the rocky beach. And that was the end of our trip :) Hope you enjoyed and have a great day :)
