Rabat— 4 nights
Not to be confused with Victoria, formerly known as Rabat, the official Rabat is a town just outside of Mdina on the island of Malta.St Paul's Catacombs and Mnajdra will appeal to history buffs. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum and Malta Falconry Centre. Explore Rabat's surroundings by going to Xaghra Parish Church (in Xaghra), Victoria (Il-Hagar | Heart of Gozo Museum, St. George's Basilica, & more) and Dwejra Bay (in San Lawrenz). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Wignacourt Museum, step into the grandiose world of Casa Bernard, pause for some photo ops at Mdina Main Gate - Baroque gateway, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at San Duminku u l-Vergni Mbierka.
