Next, we'll continue to the old city of Birgu, which is a small city that played a vital role in the Siege of Malta in 1565. In 1530, the Knights of St. John first settled in this area.
We'll go into the heart of the city with its narrow alleyways and winding streets. Known to locals as "collachio," this ancient part of the city has housed everything from taverns and brothels to churches and chapels. We'll also visit Birgu's waterfront, which was once lined with majestic galleons and is now filled with gorgeous super yachts!
Our tour concludes with a boat trip around the old harbor on a traditional Dghajsa (a type of gondola). During this short cruise, you'll notice the impressive, towering fortifications, which were originally built by the Knights.
