    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.


    HIGHLIGHTS
    • Walk through a forest planted in the 1500s with a horticulturalist.
    • Gaze out over the sea from the towering Dingli Cliffs, the island’s highest point.
    • Watch an apiarist produce honey using techniques dating to Roman times.


    HELPFUL HINTS
    • Dress in weather-appropriate clothing.
    • Wear flat comfortable walking shoes.

    A visit to the three cities - Senglea, Cospicua & Vittoriosa and a short ride aboard a typical Maltese boat is a great way to learn about Malta’s extraordinary past and enjoy its colorful ports. Walk around Senglea, a fortified city in the Grand Harbour for a view of the historic bastions. Drive through Cospicua on your way to Vittoriosa. Its honorific name of Vittoriosa was granted as a result of its victorious stand in the Great Siege of 1565. Walk along the narrow streets of this city, admiring such historic sites as the Church of St. Lawrence and Fort St. Angelo, from the outside.


    Embark on a traditional Maltese ‘Dghajsa’ (boat) for a short trip within the Grand Harbour which served the Knights of St John for 268 years. Many wars were fought here and the British military also used the harbor for many years, but that is all in the past. Today, it is much quieter and you’ll enjoy its grandeur and the views from the water’s vantage point. Head to Marsaxlokk, for a photo stop and enjoy some free time in the open-air market of this colorful fishing village.

    No tour of Malta is complete without visiting the Mosta Dome, your first stop. The famed 19th century church is visible from almost anywhere on the island. Its interior is just as impressive, especially the inlaid marble floor and the gilded, carved stone flowers set around the dome. Malta is also known for its fine wine, which you will sample at a local winery, before visiting Mdina Glass in Ta' Qali crafts village. You can watch glass blowers produce beautiful works of art. Another side of Malta shows itself at the formal San Anton Gardens, built and established by Grand Master Antoine de Paule, who ruled the island in the 1600s. The garden's exotic flora includes palms, jacarandas and conifers, some of which are more than 300 years old.
