Fortress Malta: From The Knights of St John to World War Two

Fortress Malta: From The Knights of St John to World War Two



03 Nov 10:00 - 08 Nov 20:00 - Valletta
Valletta, Malta

Route

This is a wonderfully varied and scenic tour of Malta – a tiny island with a warm welcome and proud military heritage including probably the greatest concentration of military fortifications in Europe. The Second World War siege will be our main focus but we also examine the indelible marks that other cultures and events have left behind: the unspoilt ancient walled city of Mdina, the renaissance architecture of the Knights of St John, the brief occupation by Napoleon and the extant Victorian fortifications. We will enjoy coastal drives and boat trips, visit superb palaces and fortresses, see underground shelters and secret command posts, and many other places of interest on this wonderful and friendly Mediterranean island. Throughout we will be based in a delightful five-star hotel situated within walking distance of the centre of historic Valetta with its heritage sites and excellent restaurants.
