Day3
Malta - The Three Cities - Valletta

After breakfast at your hotel, depart for a full-day guided excursion to the Three Cities of Vittoriosa, Cospicua & Senglea, where in 1530 the Knights of St. John settled on the east coast in the creeks of Grand Harbor. See the Miraculous statue of Jesus Christ the Redeemer in the Oratory of the Basilica dedicated to the birth of the Virgin Mary in Senglea. Later, take a typical harbor boat tour from Vittoriosa across the Grand Harbor to Valletta and see its waterfront. See St. Johns Co-Cathedral and Museum in Valletta, and visit the oratory which houses the famous Caravaggio paintings. Dinner and overnight.

Day4
Malta - Mellieha - Gozo

After breakfast at your hotel, depart for a full day’s guided excursion Gozo, a sister island of Malta. Here you’ll visit the Mellieha Sanctuary of Our Lady, a Marian Shrine. The sanctuary was blessed by Pope John Paul II during his visit to Malta in 1990. The Sanctuary enjoys a picturesque view of the Valley of Our Lady, Mellieha Bay, Comino and Gozo. Later see Munxar Parish Church, a Baroque style building dedicated to St. Paul, the Bozo Cathedral of the Assumption, and St. George’s Basilica, known as the golden church of the “marble basilica” of Gozo. The relics of St. Clement rests in the Baroque alter in the side chapel of St. Lazarus, one of 11 side chapels within the Basilica. Later, visit the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of Ta’Pinu, Malta’s most important pilgrimage site. The narrow rooms on either side of the alter are full of testaments of the local belief in the intercession of Our Lady. Later, return by ferry to Malta, and enjoy dinner and overnight at your hotel
