Tour of the South

Half Day Tour of the South

The tour will start with a conducted tour of the Tarxien Prehistoric Temples, a 4-temple site ranging between 2,500 and 3,600 B.C. This is the most highly decorated of the temple sites, the most revealing about the prehistoric culture that worshipped here.

We will continue on towards Vittoriosa, an old Maritime city, once boasting Arsenals for the big maritime power, that The Order of St. John was. It was here that the Knights of the Order first settled, before building the present-day capital, Valletta. We will start by taking a short walk in the Collachio, the area reserved for the Knights, then to get the impressive view of the entrance to the Grand Harbour and the Kalkara fishing village from behind Fort St. Angelo.

On through Zejtun, a typical Maltese town, with its preserved traditional architecture. On the outskirts of Zejtun, the town's 15th century-old parish, a landmark and shrine for sailors, but also a signalling point forewarning a Turkish attack.

Travel on to Marsaxlokk, a delightful colourful harbour, for its beautifully painted boats, where we will spend some time, to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the place, and to look through the market stalls, which set up daily in this quaint spot.
