Panoramic Malta Accessible Cruise Excursion from Valletta
This full day panoramic accessible cruise excursion from Valletta visits the quiet town of Mdina, ancient Tarxien Temples, the fishing village of Marsaxlokk, and more!
If you’d like to spend the full day exploring Malta, then this accessible tour is for you! It includes round trip accessible transfers from the cruise terminal and a step-free route!
Your guide and driver will meet you just outside the cruise terminal to pick you up in a wheelchair accessible van, and you’ll drive to some of Malta’s best accessible sites, enjoying the views along the way!
Mdina, which is also called the “Silent City,” is the former capital of Malta, and is surrounded by ancient city walls. As you stroll/roll down the pedestrian streets, you’ll seehow the city earned its nickname– no cars are allowed inside the city walls and there are less than 300 inhabitants!
The Tarxien Temples are an ancient ritual site (dating back to approximately 3150 BC!) just outside the city of Valletta. Your guide will tell you about the history of the area and the various artifacts found here as you marvel at the well-preserved megalithic remains of a mysterious civilization that existed more than 5000 years ago! But your accessible Valletta cruise excursion doesn’t end there!
Before returning to Valletta, you’ll stop for lunch (price not included) in an accessible restaurant Marsaxlokk—a traditional fishing village in southeastern Malta. Marsaxlokk is an authentic Maltese experience! Enjoy the sights, sounds, and aromas that drift through the docks and the local market as you stroll/roll along the step-free route with your guide.
Back in Valletta, you will also visit some of the best accessible sites in the capital of Malta. The city is UNESCO World Heritage Site, with 320 historical monuments to see (but we’ll show you the best!). The 16th century Baroque St. John’s Co-Cathedral as well as the Grandmaster’s Palace are not to be missed! At the end of your full-day accessible Valletta cruise excursion, your guide and driver will take you back to the cruise terminal where you can board your ship.
