Birgu by Night
4 hours

Tour Description

Our tour includes a visit to one of the most beautiful night time locations... Birgu is the oldest city of the Grand Harbour and it was here in 1532 that the Knights of St. John first settled in this area.

Our tour starts with a visit to the Gardjola Gardens. The magnificent view of the Grand Harbour from the Vedette (watch tower) located at these gardens provides a fabulous panorama of the towering forts and fortifications that surround this historical harbour. We continue with a visit to the old city of Birgu and a tour of the historical centre known as the 'Collacchio'. In 1532 the Knights of St. John first settled in this area and we will give you an insight to an era dominated by the Knights of St. John. A short walking tour will take us to the heart of the city through narrow streets and quaint alleys which are lamp lit at night.

We can end our tour at one of the local restaurants located on the waterfront or at one of the local wine tavernas, alternatively we can return back to your hotel or residence.
