After a twenty minute crossing, on setting foot in Gozo you will note that although both islands are similar in history and development, Gozo has a character entirely of its own. Gozo, which is a three hilled island, is greener and more picturesque than Malta.
During this tour you will visit The National Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of Ta' Pinu which is a Roman Catholic basilica and national shrine located 700 metres from the 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 Dwejra Bay, following a visit to the Crafts Centre. There you will see stone works, marble, traditional food, local lace and much more. This is the perfect place where you can buy a souvenir which will remind you of Gozo.
You will then visit Victoria which is the capital of Gozo. In the centre of Victoria lies The Cittadella, a historic fortified city. The Cittadella also called at The Citadel, is on Malta's tentative list of future World Heritage Sites by UNESCO, who describes it as a small fortified town. An old prison is located within the city, as are the Courts of Justice. After this visit you will stop for lunch in a restauranat in Rabat.
Finally you will drive to Mgarr Port via Qala Belvedere where breathtaking scenes can be enjoyed. You will then have a short ferry crossing back to Malta and will be dropped-off at your hotel.
