Valletta Waterfront, Rabat & Mdina Night Tour

1. Valletta Waterfront, Rabat & Mdina Night Tour

Start by driving around Valletta where you can admire the majestic 16th century fortifications and bastions as they are beautifully lit up during the night, a truly captivating and unique sight. After driving around Valletta’s bastions & fortifications, stop at The Valletta Waterfront, this gorgeous promenade located in the Grand Harbour area features nineteen beautifully restored 18th century warehouses, stretching along the water’s edge with a backdrop of historic bastions and fortifications. The iconic doors have been revived with an artistic impression of colour, representing the storage of goods from the past, with blue for fish, green for produce, yellow for wheat and red for wine. The area comes alive at night, attracting locals and tourists alike to its heritage buildings which have been transformed into a variety of lively bars & restaurants. Some free time will be given during our visit to The Valletta Waterfront. From here we will proceed to the west-central part of Malta to discover the village of Rabat and the medieval city of Mdina, the old capital city of Malta. Rabat (a semitic word meaning “suburb”) was at one point a part of Mdina, before it evolved as a separate village. In Roman times the site of Mdina and Rabat was collectively known as Melita, during the Arab occupation of Malta, Melita was renamed to Mdina, and its area was reduced by moving the southern wall of the township; as a result, parts of Mdina became known as Rabat. Here we will enjoy a walk in the older part of the village, along its narrow and winding streets, appreciating the charm and beauty of this unique village during the night, before we proceed towards Mdina. Renowned for its opulent palaces and fortifications, its medieval and baroque architecture, and its ancient heritage, Mdina, also known as “The Silent City”, remains one of the island's most evocative destinations. Serving as the island's capital city from antiquity till the medieval period, Mdina is truly an enchanting city! a stroll through its narrow streets, which have not changed much in the last 1,000 years, is a must for any visitor to Malta. It is undoubtedly one of Europe’s finest examples of an ancient walled/fortified city. Explore this historic city of timeless beauty during the night, when all the city’s landmarks, fortifications and bastions are beautifully illuminated, and all the quaint alleys and narrow streets are gracefully lit up by the old lanterns found at every twist and turn, giving the whole city an enchanting and captivating aura. Delve into the rich past of the city as you explore its medieval streets, take a journey back in time admiring the magnificent palazzos and churches in the city’s unique mix of medieval and baroque styles, as well as the spectacular panoramas from the high bastion walls from where you will be able to see almost half of the island sparkling beneath you, wrapped up in a dazzling and stunning nocturnal setting.

It was a great experience. Our guide, Chantelle, was really knowledgeable, friendly a d engaging. The tour itself was really interesting and worth doing. The transport was modern and comfortable. At first I had a misunderstanding about the pick up time and after calling it was resolved for me quickly.

An excellent way to learn about Maltese history and culture. Mario the guide, amazing...friendly, enthusiastic, made the experience remarkable. I hired the service in English and he did the tour in Spanish for me!!! Definitely a guide that adds value to his work. 100% recommendable.

Really enjoyed this tour with Chantelle . The silent city of Mdina was surreal but fascinating , would recommend just for that part . Lovely walk on waterfront in Valletta to start the tour and lots of tips and interesting facts from our tour guide Chantelle .

Nice outing, especially in very hot weather. This way you can still see a lot without having to walk in full sun during the day. The guide did his very best to show and tell a lot. A small rest or drinking break would have been welcome, otherwise a great trip.

I really enjoyed this tour of Rabat and Mdina. It was like stepping back in time. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and great fun, happy to answer our questions, no matter what language. Mdina is a special place and magical by night.
