Nowhere in our 7-week Mediterranean trip did we find the political and military history of one of its islands depicted so spectacularly from its conquest by Phoenicians, Romans and Byzantines through the World Wars to Malta's independence from Britain in 1964. Buy the triple combo...More

This 45min movie gives a great overview of the history of Malta. Even after more than a week of sightseeing, the movie gave some information, which we haven't heard, yet. Even better than the movie itself is the guided tour of the infirmary. We highly...More

A vital part of any trip to Malta. Involves a 30 minute film talking through the history of Malta as well as a tour of the knights hospital. It brings the whole city to life and gives understanding to the beautiful buildings of Valletta.

I would recommend anyone visiting Malta to go to watch this very worthwhile experience. You are provided with 3d glasses and headphones, and be aware that the seating moves to the story line.
