Lisa O’Rourke, Carla Lawlor (Cassidy Travel), Catherine O’Keeffe (Marble City Travel), Sinead Casey (Sunway) and Sally Lynch (Centre Travel Worldchoice) joined the visit Malta and Gozo team accompanied by Declan Mescall (Features Editor Travelbiz) for a great three-night Fam.

 

Day one of our Fam trip to Malta began with a presentation by Heritage Malta about some of the 30 museums, historical sites and seven World Heritage Sites of Malta and Gozo. This was followed by Peter Green (Trade Trainer UK & Ireland Malta Tourist Office) who brought the group up to speed on much of what the islands have to offer visitors. Then it was off to visit the Hagar Qim and Mnajdra Temples dated between 3600-3200 BC and only discovered in 1839.

 

Next was a short drive to the small picturesque fishing village of Marsaxlokk for lunch. Our hotel inspection was of the 5 star Phoenicia located at the City Gates of Valetta where we enjoyed a welcome drink on the veranda. Valetta, the Capital City of Malta, a UNESCO World Heritage City – is nothing short of an open-air museum and is dotted with quaint cafes and wine bars. It also provides a stunning snapshot of Malta’s Grand Harbour, often described as the most beautiful in the Mediterranean. Our knowledgeable and witty guide Clive brought us on a very pleasant walking tour around some of this ancient city. The evening finished with dinner at Gracy’s Brasserie a new and exciting venue offering an international and seasonal brasserie-style menu.
