Full Day 3-Cities & Wine Tasting Tour - €50 per person

Departure from  hotel  in  coach accompanied  by  guide  and  we visit the  Three Historical  Cities  of  Senglea ,  Cospicua  and Vittoriosa.  When  the  Knights   first arrived  in  Malta,  they chose  as their  home Vittoriosa (Birgu) because of its  vicinity  to  Fort St Angelo.    In  Cospicua (Bormla)  one  can  admire The Cottonera Lines,  the Santa Margherita  Lines,  Verdala Fort & Barracks and  the  magnificent  Collegiate  Parish  Church  and its  artistic  Oratory.  In  Vittoriosa    we  will be  able  to  visit the church   dedicated  to  St Lawrence.

After visiting the 3-cities, we will drive to le Meridiana for a wine tasting session. Meridiana’s roots date back to 1985 as a result of a co-operation between a Maltese trader in wines for 20 years and a Bordeaux oenologist. The latter persuaded his Maltese friend that there was potential for high quality wine-growing in Malta. As a result the Meridiana wine estate was set up in April 1987. Meridiana’s mission is to produce “World Class Wines of Maltese Character – internationally acclaimed wines made from wine grapes grown exclusively in Malta on Maltese soil. The name Meridiana and the estate’s Sun Dial Insignia have been inspired by Malta’s Southern European location.
