What's this trip about?

    Colonized by the Phoenicians, Romans, Moors, Normans, Sicilians, Spanish, Knights of St. John, the French, and the British, Malta is a smorgasbord of influences!  What better way to see this tiny Mediterranean archipelago than through its incredible food? Indulge in Maltese cuisine, which is very similar to other Mediterranean cuisines and is a result of the long relationship between the locals and the many civilizations who occupied the Malta throughout history. Traditional Maltese food is very rustic and relies on local items like rabbit, honey, tomatoes, and olives. On this vacation, you will have the opportunity to sample some of Malta’s traditional cuisine, locally produced wines, and other items.

Itinerary

Day 1 Welcome to Malta!

Say "bongu" to Malta! Arrive at Malta International Airport and transfer to your accommodation in Valletta, Malta's storybook capital. After settling in, take a stroll through Valletta's streets and find a restaurant in town to get your first taste of Maltese cuisine. 

Day 2 Valletta

Today you will spend a full day in Valletta, Malta's historic capital. See the stunning Caravaggio painting in St. John's Co-Cathedral and try the local street food. 

Day 3 Valletta

Taste Malta's incredible wine on a tour of the Marsovin Cellars, originally built in the 17th-century by the Knights of St. John. Sample a few wines and local delicacies before returning to Valletta, where you'll have the rest of the day at leisure.

Day 4 Valletta

Spend the morning at leisure, then prepare for your half-day tour of Mdina, Malta's oldest city founded by the Phoenicians 4,000 years ago. Stroll the cobblestone streets inside the walled city where very few cars are permitted.  This city is home to just 300 inhabitants!

Day 5 Valletta

Spend a relaxing day in Valletta. In the evening, celebrate your last night with an authentic meal at a restaurant in Qormi, which boasts the largest number of bakeries in the country!

Day 6 Depart Malta

Your gastronomical tour of Malta ends today. At the scheduled time, transfer back to Malta airport for your flight home. Flip through your photos and start dreaming of your next adventure!
