Malta at War

Witness this island nation’s resilience first hand

Uncover Malta’s historical ability to survive

Malta at War

The fortress islands come to life once more.

This tour is poignant. It touches the hardest of spirits because that is exactly what you will discover. A nation that survives, even when the odds are stacked against it. Malta’s geographical position has always made it a strategic naval base for many of the empires that have laid claim to these lands over the centuries. From the Phoenicians and the Romans to the Moors and the Normans; from the Sicilians, the Spanish and The Order of St John to the French and the British. This country has known occupation for most of its recorded history and along with that comes the terror, the passion, the fear and the resilience to push on, no matter the cost.

This tour will guide you through some of Malta’s most famous fortresses, vantage points and museums, all with a view to bring to life Malta’s war history just for you. It is detailed, interesting and above all opens your eyes to the power of hope and the will to survive.
