We will start our vintage bus tour with a visit to Palazzo Falson, which is a medieval town house in Mdina, Malta’s Old Capital City. It was purposely built as a family residence by the Maltese nobility, and it is named after the Falson family. It is presently open to the public as a house-museum, with seventeen rooms of historic domestic belongings and a number of antique collections. The building is believed to have been built in around 1495, probably incorporating parts of a 13th-century building. During the rule of the Order of St. John, the building might have received Philippe Villiers de L’Isle-Adam, the first Grand Master in Malta.
The vintage bus next stop is Clapham Junction, which are in the South part of Malta. Clapham Junction are covered with very puzzling and mysterious grooves in the rock. They appear to be ancient roadways of some sort. They do not appear to be directly linked to the building of any of Malta’s megalithic, and they do cross the small island and seem to be found on the higher and rockier surfaces. There can be many of them in the same area, beside each other. Sometimes they are a solitary pair that can go on for miles. One of the mysteries and frustrations of Malta’s ancient and magnificent history is that there are no records left of it by those people. No written word or pictorial guide was left by the Temple Builders and Cart Rut users. Most archaeologists presume that the site developed about 2000 BC after new settlers came over from Sicily, starting the Bronze Age in Malta.
We will then drive to The Buskett Gardens, located in the fertile valley of Wied il-Luq, Siggiewi. The gardens are at their best in Spring, but they offer shade from the harsh mid-Summer sun and offer a quiet place for a walk in the winter months. Verdala Palace, an official residence of the President of Malta, is located on the edge of the Gardens. A coffee break is also included in this tour, where we will taste the delicious and traditional snack for Malta – “Pastizzi”.
Our final stop is Dingli Cliffs, located less than a kilometre to the southwest of the village of Dingli. The cliffs are 253 meters above the sea level and the highest point in Malta, offering a great view of the sea and Filfla Natural Reserve island. An isolated chapel makes for a charming landmark.
