Malta's Scenic Tour
Located in the heart of picturesque
Naxxar, this 18th Century Palace is a place of wonder that begs to
be explored. On your visit you will discover the intricate nuances
of Malta's historic nobility and their enchanting way of life.
Touring this stately home offers great insight and sparks the
imagination - whether you find yourself seeking inspiration from the
grand Ballroom, the detailed Family Chapel or the fabulous walled
Gardens and Orangery.
Your next stop is Clapham Junction. Clapham Junction is covered with
very puzzling and mysterious groove in the rock. They appear to be
ancient roadways of some sort. They do not appear to be directly
linked to the building of any of Malta's megalithic and they do
cross the small island and seem to be found on the higher and
rockier surfaces. There can be many of them in the same area, beside
each other. Sometimes they are a solitary pair that can go on for
miles. One of the mysteries and frustrations of Malta's ancient and
magnificent history is that there are no records left of it by those
people. No written word or pictorial guide was left by the Temple
Builders and Cart Rut users.
Your will then drive to The Buskett Gardens, located in the fertile
valley of Wied il-Luq, Siggiewi. The gardens are at their best in
Spring but they offer shade from the harsh mid- Summer sun and offer
a quiet place for a walk in the Winter months. Verdala Palace, an
official residence of the President of Malta, is located on the edge
of the Gardens. A coffee break is also included in this tour where
you will taste the delicious and traditional "Pastizzi".
Your final stop is Dingli Cliffs, located less than a kilometre to
the south west of the village of Dingli. The cliffs are 220 metres
high and are the highest point in Malta! An isolated chapel makes
for a charming landmark. Built in the 17th century, the Chapel of
St. Mary Magdalene offers some of the most beautiful views you can
get from these cliffs. From here you can also see the tiny
uninhabited islet of Filfla.
During this excursion you will tour onboard a Vintage Bus, a bus
that is now rare to see on the Maltese Islands.
