Victoria on Your Own

Victoria on Your Own

Travel by coach to Victoria, the capital of Gozo Island, and explore the city on your own with its medieval Citadel and fortified walls.

This excursion is a transfer service only (no guide) to the heartbeat of the island and its capital, Victoria. You will have approximately 2 ½ hours to explore on your own. A coach will pick you up from the pier side and drop you off at a central location in Victoria. You will be provided with a map of the town and advised of your pick-up time and meeting spot for the return journey.

This is one of the best ways to appreciate the warmth, beauty, feel, sound, and scent of the capital. By walking at your own pace among the back streets and alleyways, you will find that all routes seem to lead to St George's Square, It-Tokk or Savina Square. Here you will find artisan shops that line the route, with artists hard at work making intricate pieces of jewellery or art.

A visit to Victoria would not be complete without a visit to the Citadel. Be sure to plan your time to see this historic fortress dating back to 1500 BC dominates the capital's skyline. Within its walls lies a fine 17th-century Baroque cathedral designed by the architect of the Cathedral of Mdina in Malta. This church stands on the site of a Roman temple to the god Juno. The impressive fortifications of the recently restored city, which has submitted an application to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
