The Three Cities is a collective description of the three fortified cities of Cospicua, Birgu (Vittoriosa), and Senglea. The oldest of the Three Cities is Vittoriosa, which has existed since prior to the Middle Ages.

During this half day tour, you will have the opportunity to appreciate these unique historical fortified cities and admire magnificent churches, traditional piazzas, incredible fortifications, and architectural treasures found all around the Three Cities area. Pieces of living history kept alive by hundreds of years of preservation! We start with a panoramic drive past the city of Cospicua, a double fortified harbour city and the largest of the three cities, to reach the city of Vittoriosa, this glorious city has been inhabited since the time of the Phoenicians, but the current city dates back from the time of the Order of the Knights of Saint John. Vittoriosa was chosen as the capital city of Malta instead of Mdina upon the arrival of the Order in the year 1530. Enjoy a fascinating walking tour through the narrow streets of the city admiring and appreciating all the historical buildings and captivating treasures found at every twist and turn. Upon arrival at the stunning Vittoriosa waterfront, board a traditional Maltese “Frejgatina” (a small, carvel-built fishing boat) for a delightful tour of the colourful harbour creeks. The tour ends at Senglea, named after Claude De La Sengle, the Grand Master who founded the city, Senglea is also known as “Civitas Invicta” a name given to the city for managing to resist the Ottoman invasion during the Great Siege of 1565. The island on which Senglea lies was joined by a land bridge to Cospicua during the time of the Knights of St. John and as a result, it became peninsular in shape. From the Gardjola Gardens located at the tip of the peninsula enjoy a stunning 360° view of the Grand Harbour, including the impressive Fort Sant Angelo, from where the Grand Master Jean Perisot De La Valette led the defence of the island during the Great Siege of 1565.

What people are saying about Valletta

We really enjoyed the trip, the crew were professional, courteous and knowledgeable. We arrived early to ensure we were able to purchase the day pass for an upper deck lounge chair. The chairs were 10.00 Euros for the day (each) and well worth the money. We stayed on Comino all day. Bring extra towels or large ones, extra clothes for the trip back in the evening as it gets cool up top. You are able to leave your items on the boat while you’re on the island (they aren’t responsible for lost or stolen items) but we didn’t have any issues leaving some things on the top deck.

Very nice and reliable contact. Not a giant boat stuffed to the brim. Smaller, therefore more comfortable. Audio also in German. I would only recommend updating the audios. But that didn't detract from the experience. Very good value for money. Many Thanks.

This was a really nice tour and extremely good value. Lovely views of Valletta and the 3 Cities at night and all illuminated. Well worth doing.
