On this full-day tour, you'll be picked up from your hotel and after a 20-minute ferry crossing arrive on the island of Gozo. While both Malta and Gozo are similar in history and development, Gozo has a character entirely of its own. Gozo, which has three hills, is greener and more picturesque than Malta. You will visit the National Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of Ta' Pinu, Dwejra Bay, a souvenir shop, Victoria and the Cittadella.
During this tour you will visit The National Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of Ta' Pinu, a Roman Catholic basilica and national shrine located just outside village of Gharb. The basilica is located in the edge of a cliff in open countryside which allows visitors to enjoy beautiful views of the area. You will then visit the Inland Sea and Dwejra Bay. A visit to the Crafts Center is a must. There you will see stone works, marble, traditional food, local lace and many other items. This is the perfect place where you can buy a souvenir which will remind you of Gozo.
Then visit Victoria, the capital of Gozo. The name given in honor of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee, Victoria is more commonly referred to as Rabat by locals. A historic fortified city, you'll find a citadel at it's center, an old prison, and the Courts of Justice. After this visit, stop for lunch in a restaurant in Rabat.
Finally, drive to Mgarr Port via Qala Belvedere to see some breathtaking scenery. Then make a short ferry crossing back to Malta and be dropped-off at your hotel.
