  • English English
  • 4.5 - 8.5 hours
  • Hotel pick up

Discover the history of the Megalithic temples of Hagar Qim and be enchanted by the beautiful landscapes that make up the Marsaxlokk fishing village and the famous Blue Grotto.

Itinerary

Having picked you up in your hotel we begin our excursion visiting the oldest limestone quarry in Malta, where we'll learn the ancient art of the local master stonemasons. Then we'll hit the road to the South of the island to visit the megalithic temples of Hagar Qim, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

On our tour of the archaeological site, we'll discover the history of these religious monuments, whose construction continues to provoke questions of expert investigators. Then our tour continues to the nearby coastal town of Wied iz-Zurrieq, in whose port we'll launch on board a boat (whose tickets €8 each, are not included) taking us to the famous Blue Grotto. Do you know how this extraordinary natural monument was formed?

We'll fuel up with lunch in Wied iz-Zurrieq (a three-course meal including wine), and tour the wine producing regions of the South of Malta until we arrive at the picturesque fishing village of Marsaxlokk. Here you'll have free time to explore the famous market, the most popular on the Maltese archipelago. And our last stop will take place in the Ghar Dalam prehistoric cave, an essential stop for anyone wanting to understand the Neolithic past of the island.

With the tour of the cave over, we'll begin the return journey to your hotel.

Tour Without Marsaxlokk

If you are short on time, and would prefer a slightly shorter tour, you can choose the option without Marsaxlokk, in which we don't stop for lunch either.

Hotel Pick Up

This tour includes hotel pick up between 8:30 and 9:30 am in the main hotels on the island. Having made your reservation the local provider will contact you to confirm the exact time and place.
