Palazzo Parisio, Dingli Cliffs & Buskett Gardens

Description Activity price options

Travel onboard an eye-catching, and rare, Maltese Vintage Bus throughout this entire trip. It’s an experience not to be missed, especially if you are a fan of such vehicles. Firstly, it will take you to Naxxar’s 18th Century Palace for a tour of this majestic stately home, adorned with trompe l'oeil artwork. You will discover how Malta’s nobility lived whilst exploring the grand Ballroom, the exquisite family Chapel and the beautifully tranquil gardens. How many terrapins (a type of turtle) can you spot basking at the pond? Thereafter you will be transported further back in time to visit the mysterious Clapham Junction, a series of ancient tracks made in the rock which could be some sort of pre-historic roadway. Before you get too confused of their origins you will be driven to Buskett Gardens on the edge of Verdala Palace, the official residence of the President of Malta. It is here that you will sample some traditional Maltese pies, or pastizzi, washed down with a good coffee. After your snack you will continue to your final stop, Dingli Cliffs, which are 220 metres high – the highest point in Malta. You can take in the stunning cliff top views from here, including the uninhabited island of Filfla, used as target practice by British troops during World War Two! After seeing the stand alone Chapel of St. Mary Magdalene, you will head back to your drop-off point in the wonderful Vintage Bus.
