5. Valletta Bus Terminus – The point of entry to Malta’s capital city built by the knights of the Order of St. John in 1568 and transformed over
the years into the finest example of baroque. The city is studded with historical palaces, museums, churches, garden cafés, restaurants and

6. Valletta Harbour – A drive round Valletta’s harbour and the magnificent bastions. Valletta is one of the UNESCO world heritage sites and is
one of the few surviving inhabited walled cities.
7. Valletta War Museum – Malta suffered greatly during the wars and this museum is a testimony to the hardship of those years. Exhibits
include equipment, uniforms and photos.
8. Fort St. Elmo – The fort is at the tip of the Valletta peninsula. Historians are of the opinion that the site was fortified since the punic era (c.
200 S. C). The fort is only partially opened to the public.
9. Mediterranean Conference Centre – The building serves as a state-of-the-art conference centre. It was built by the Order of St. John as
the main hospital of the Knights. Of great importance is the long hall which served as the hospital’s medical ward and is hailed to be the
longest roofed hall in Europe. The summit between Bush and Gorbachov in 1989 which marked the end of the Cold War was hosted in this
10. Fort St. Angelo – (photo opportunity) The bus will stop for a few moments. Across the water Fort St. Angelo which for centuries guarded
the Grand Harbour. The site and Fort witnessed and withstood two Great Sieges, in 1565 by the Ottoman Empire and the other in 1944 by
the Axis command.

wall paintings. Another UNESCO world heritage site. Entrance is restricted to those who have pre-booked. Tarxien Temples – Another
megalithic temple and a UNESCO world heritage site. Built in about 2000 B.C. the site continued to be used until the early Bronze Age (1500
B.C.). Hypogeum might be closed due to restoration.
13. Senglea Point (photo opportunity) – A unique chance to see Valletta and its bastions from the other side of the harbour.

berthing facilities for super-yacht. The area also houses Malta’s Maritime Museum.
15. Bieb Is-Sultan – (passing) A magnificent triumphal gate built by Grand Master Nicholas Cotoner in 1675.

Ferdinand von Hompesch zu Bolheim, Grandmaster of Knights of Malta in 1797, Beland being his mother’s surname. Żejtun takes its name
from the Sicilian Arabic for “olive”, which was one of the main productive industries in Malta. It is also known as Ħal-Bisbut, or Casal Bisbut.
17. Zejtun St. Gregory’s Church – Before the building of the present parish church of Zejtun, now at the centre of the town, this used to be
the church of the village as it was then. It was definitely the largest and one of the most interesting in the islands during the 16th Century.
Its architecture attests to its antiquity, because there is an indication that some parts were actually constructed in the 15th Century while
others were built during the 16th Century.

22. Hagar Qim & Mnajdra – Another two pre-historical temples which are situated in the same area with a short distance from each other.
