A Taste Of Malta
hrs Estimate Duration
Taste the local wines at one of the best wineries in Malta and discover its famous handicrafts village. You’ll visit the famous Dome in Mosta and stroll through San Anton Gardens. As you approach Mosta, you’ll notice in the distance, one of the largest unsupported church domes in Europe and the world. The church was nearly destroyed during World War II when an Axis Bomb pierced the dome but failed to explode. To remember this event, the detonator was removed and the bomb is now on display in a small museum attached to the church.
Drive to one of the local vineyards, where Malta’s most delicate wines are produced. A wine tasting session accompanied by local specialties will follow. Stop at Ta’ Qali village to see a number of local artisans at work producing typical Maltese ware. Here, you’ll enjoy some free time for shopping. Visit San Anton Gardens surrounding the palace built in 1623, and which today is the residence of the President of the Republic of Malta. The garden as we know today was open to the public in 1882.
Need to Know:
