Amidst history and legend this excursion takes us on a journey of discovery of the city of Mdina and of Mosta for an unmissable look at the island's medieval past.



What we will see
  • Mosta: Mosta Dome (Rotunda of the Assumption)

What we will do
  • The excursion starts with a journey to Mosta, to visit the famous dome known as the Rotonda of the Assumption, which is one of the largest domes in the world.
