Your tour starts at a central location in Valletta where you'll meet your guide and set off on your private walking exploration of the city, one of Europe's most beautiful, known for its baroque architecture, palaces, and churches.
This UNESCO World Heritage site dates back to the 1500s, when the Knights of St. John founded the fortress city. Over the years, it became home to buildings designed by top European architects of the era and renowned works of art.
Learn about all of this from your guide as you walk past landmarks such as Parliament House, the ruins of the Royal Opera House, the Upper and Lower Barrakka Gardens, Auberge d'Italie, Auberge de Castille, St. John's Co-Cathedral, the Great Siege Monument, Strait Street, St. George Square, Grandmaster's Palace, Piazza Regina, National Library of Malta, the Church of St. Paul's Shipwreck, the Siege Bell War Memorial, and Fort St. Elmo – National War Museum.
As you go, hear little-known stories about what it was like to be a patient at the Holy Infirmatory or a galley slave on the ships of the Order, and whether all knights behaved in accordance to their vows. After three hours, you'll have a deeper perspective of Valletta.
