Trip to beautiful MALTA
Salaam Alaikum, Fancy a short trip to Malta (5 days – but you can join for any length as you please). The itinerary is flexible: Day 1: VALLETTA: Visit Barrakka Gardens, the famous Grand Harbour, St Paul’s Church, The Grand Master’s Palace … Day 2: GOZO Explore Malta's sister island, Gozo, and its capital Victoria with its fortified Citadel and the clifftop church of Ta'Pinu. We can also visit the traditional market and explore the fascinating Ggantija Temples, which date back to about 3600BC. Day 3: ST PAUL’S BAY (+ Beach day 😉) Day 4: MARSAXLOKK AND BLUE GROTTO Explore the picturesque fishing town of Marsaxlokk, the Blue Grotto caves, a stunning natural wonder surrounded by azure waters (We can also choose to take a cruise into the caves themselves). Day 5: THREE CITIES AND HARBOUR CRUISE Visit Vittoriosa, Cospicua and Senglea. Collectively known as the Three Cities, they were built and fortified by the Knights of Malta and their narrow streets are home to historic buildings and churches. Then in Senglea we can enjoy spectacular views from the lookout situated in the centre of the Grand Harbour. Duration: from 24 to 28 September - but you can join for any length as you please Flights: Return flights to and from Malta are under GBP 100 (departures are from Luton or Stansted) Accommodation: we can try to book a hotel in Sliema – (prices are around EUR 250 (for a single room) - and EUR 150 pp for a shared room (for 2 peoples) for 5 days). Other expenses: local travel/food (more or less like London) / personal expenses Weather: On average, September is sunny, warm and dry in Malta. At this time of year, the averages temperatures are around 23°C / 25°C. Malta is a Muslim-friendly country and has a Muslim population and plenty of halal food options for the Muslim travelers available in addition to a small local mosque on the island. Again, the itinerary is flexible! So please join us and don’t forget to bring your sense of adventure and sense of humor! This can be a mixed trip.
