Today we’ll begin with a visit to the stunning Mosta Church and a short photo stop at the Dingli Cliffs before we move on to the Buskett Gardens.

On the menu for this afternoon: an indulgent wine tasting accompanied by local cheese and biscuits at the Meridiana Wine Estate. Tonight, we’ll gather for dinner at a local restaurant.

Afterwards, we’ll travel to the ferry point at Cirkewwa via a photo stop at Popeye’s Village, then take a short speedboat transfer to Gozo for a chance to explore the unique caves.

Day 5: Xaghra – Gharb – Victoria – Xaghra

Today we’ll visit the Megalithic Temples of Ggantija, followed by the Old Citadel in Victoria. Next, there’s a local treat in store this afternoon as we visit the Ta’ Rikardu Farm for a hands-on cheesemaking experience. Later, we’ll make our way back to our hotel via a photo stop at Sannat.

Day 6: Xaghra – San Lawrence – Marsalforn – Xaghra

As we near the end of our journey, we still have a handful of sights to be explored – and today will not disappoint.
