Yachting Land Adventure

Malta's Capitals

Take the scenic route to Malta's historic capital, the Mdina which is located on a hill with stunning views over the island. It is one of Europe’s finest examples of an ancient, walled city with a mix of medieval and baroque architecture.

Stroll through the city's narrow streets and let your guide introduce you to the Mdina's 4000 years of history and provide an orientation to the town itself. From the bastions, enjoy the sweeping views stretching all the way to the coast. Take advantage of some free time to independently visit either St. Paul’s Cathedral, Palazzo Falson or another historic site pointed out by your guide. There is also the option of souvenir shopping or just enjoying a hot beverage and cake at one of the several cafés.

Next, continue to Valletta – the present-day capital. Walk past the Auberge de Castille - today the office of the Prime Minister - to your stop at the Barrakka Gardens, perched high above the Grand Harbour. The gardens provide a shady retreat from the bustle of the city, and the balcony has one of the best views in Malta. Visit the monumental St John's Co-Cathedral, and the Magisterial Palace. Enjoy a walking tour past landmarks like the new Renzo Piano Parliament building and Our Lady of Victories Church. You will also enjoy some Maltese nibbles served in a lovely square. There is some free time to enjoy Valletta at your own pace before heading back to the ship.

Notes: St John's Co-Cathedral is closed on Saturday afternoons, Sundays and public holidays. When visiting these days a visit to the National Museum of Archaeology will substitute. Modest attire is required to enter the Cathedral; knees, shoulders and midriffs must be covered. Shorts are not allowed. Wear comfortable walking shoes; bring a sun hat. A minimum participation is required to operate all Yachting Land Adventures and some have limited capacity. All adventures in the SeaDream Yachting Land Adventures program are subject to change.
