Birgu (Vittoriosa) Tours

star-5
410 Reviews
Birgu (Vittoriosa)
An interesting town to visit on Malta is known in Maltese as Birgu, and in Italian as Vittoriosa (“Victorious,” named as such after the Great Siege of Malta). Situated on the Grand Harbor, it has a lengthy maritime history and home to the popular Maritime Museum. But the Fort St. Angelo is the real draw here, an unrestored fortress that is largely credited with helping Malta beat back invaders. 

Other highlights include the Church Museum, which has a rag-tag collection of artifacts that gives visitors a sense of Birgu's past; the gorgeous St. Lawrence Church, a gorgeous structure with some astonishing art; and the main gate and walls of this previously fortified city. And Villetta is just across the harbor!

Practical Info

Birgu is 15 minutes from Malta International Airport. 
Address: Birgu, Malta

HARBOUR CRUISE Around-Valletta & the 3 Cities (2hrs cruise)

The Valletta harbour cruise will be a truly memorable experience for you. The Grand Harbour between Malta’s Capital City Valletta and the Three Cities of Vittoriosa, Senglea and Cospicua is aptly named. It is grand in every way. There are certainly other fortified harbours around the Mediterranean, but none reach the majesty or provoke as much awe as Grand Harbour with Valletta it’s towering glory and the lovely Three Cities. What better way to admire its seemingly endless fortifications and baroque and medieval architecture, than onboard a ferry cruising on its deep waters and many creeks. Malta’s fortifications are considered to be the best examples of military architecture anywhere in the world. Here are some expert comments on the fortifications surrounding the Valletta Grand Harbour: “the most powerful artificial fortress in the world.” Major General Whitworth Porter of the Royal Engineers.
