Valletta, Malta

GL-MELITA'S FLORA AND FAUNA, THE LAND OF HONEY

DETAILS

  • 41/2
    Stunden Geschätzte Dauer

Meet a horticulturalist for a revealing tour of the island’s most intact forest and then watch how honey is produced using techniques that date to Roman times. The Knights of Malta originally planted Buskett in the mid-1500s as a hunting ground, and its flora and fauna are extraordinary. There, you can expect to stroll under oaks and Aleppo pines while following winding paths through manicured shrubbery and beds of blooming flowers. Continuing on, you will pause for photos at Dingli Cliffs, the island’s highest point. Don’t miss the chapel dedicated to St. Mary Madgalene on the edge of the cliff. You will then pass through Mdina, known as Melita in Roman times. The Greeks referred to Malta as Melite, a name derived from the word for honey. How fitting, as beekeeping still thrives. An apiarist will show you how honey is produced locally using techniques that haven’t changed in centuries. You will also be offered a taste.
