Discover Gozo

We transfer to the Cirkewwa terminal located in the north of Malta to board our ferry for a short ferry crossing to the island of Gozo. During the crossing you will pass the smaller island of Comino and you will notice a top of the high rugged cliffs stands the Santa Maria Fort which was used during the movie 'Count of Monte Cristo' (filmed 2002). Our ferry crossing lasts only 25 minutes and on arrival we join the guide and tour transport for our tour of Gozo.

You will immediately notice that Gozo is much greener and has certain characteristics making it different to the larger of island of Malta. We start our tour with a visit to shrine of Ta'Pinu (dedicated to the Blessed Virgin of Ta' Pinu). This important church is set in a stunning location, on the edge of a ridge in open countryside and providing beautiful views of the surrounding area. The church is also linked to a number or 'miracles' which you will discover during your visit.

We continue to our next stop and the area known as 'Dewjra'. Here you will see interesting geological sites including Dwejra Bay and the Inland Sea which is a lagoon of seawater which has access to the open sea though a small arch like tunnel. You can take a small boat trip around the inland sea and through the tunnel (cost of boat trip is not included in the tour rate, allow €4 per person if you would like to do this and if time allows). Another of Dwejra's geological delights is the Admiral's Rock or as it is better know, Fungus Rock. A special plant is said to grow here which has various medical cures for conditions such as dysentery, bleeding and impotence.

Just before our lunch break we will visit the Ta’ Dbiegi Crafts Village where you can view local handmade pottery, mouth blown glass, Gozo lace and silver filigree. This short stop is ideal if you want to pick up a souvenir or just a short rest stop before you settle down for lunch.

After lunch in the main city which is locally called Rabat but you are likely to know it as Victoria, we will take a short walk through this busy little city to join a trackless train for a short trip up the steep hill to the fortified Cittadella. The Cittadellla is a small walled city within the city Victoria, only a small number of families still live within the walls. This historical fortified city has recently undergone major restoration works and you can visit the new visitors centre, explore quaint alleys or stroll around the walls enjoying amazing views of the island from the high bastions.

The final part of our tour of Gozo will take us through some of the villages, en route we will stop at the Qala Belvedere. This stop gives you an amazing scenic view of the landscape cascading down to the coast and in the distance the smallest island of Comino and the larger island of Malta...all in one photo. At this stage our tour is coming to an end and we will make our way back to the ferry for our return to Malta and transport you back to the drop off point.
