Entrance to the Cittadella Visitors' Centre is €5 and is accessible via Castle Hill by making a sharp right and down a set of stairs or via the lift. The Visitors’ centre is located within the Cittadella’s old water Reservoir, it reinforces the historical ties that link it with Rabat and the natural landscape bringing the story of the Cittadella to life Using touchscreens, visitors can access the information in 8 languages, Maltese, English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Chinese. The island of Gozo is rich in history and natural beauty, resources which, woven in with local customs and traditions, were key factors in creating this new tourist attraction. Being greener, less densely populated and urbanised than Malta, Gozo boasts an idyllic lifestyle that draws inspiration from its unique island setting The visitor experience culminates in a dramatic 360° Cittadella Show, set within an impressive theatrical space created by the high arches of the former water Reservoir.

The Citadella visitor centre with its exhibition depicting the history is worth visiting. It is a small exhibition and free to browse. There is a very well done Audio Visual show which is included in a ticket which features 3 or 4 places of interest within The Citadel. It is a very new centre and worth visiting before entering the main Citadel area.

Had an awesome holiday. We dived wrecks, caves and reefs. The instructors/guides were brilliant, particularly Richard Salter and Alan O Reilly. They explained the history of the site and what marine life we would see. Very helpful and professional. The contact between Diane and our dive centre was brilliant and efficient. Would definitely recommend gozo and St. Andrews divers cove to other divers and centres back home.

Tal-Massar Winery

Customers are kindly requested to book us at least a day before so that we can give them all our attention. If however, they are short on time, they can still contact us and we will do our best to accommodate them the best way we can. All wine tasting sessions are conducted in the afternoon. During winter and mid season tours are conducted at 3.15Pm and when the hot season starts vineyard tours are done at a later time. It is our policy that when the weather permits all wine tasting sessions are conducted at the vineyards at Gharb. Further details will be provided once booking is confirmed.

Really enjoyed our visit to Tal-Massar. The place is situated in a quite picturesque area in the Gozitan countryside. The winery and it's owners are very genuine, knowledgeable and kind! The tour consisted of a tour of the vineyards, followed by tasting of their 4 wines with nibbles to compliment the wines. The wines are of very high quality and reasonably priced for the quality, a reflection of the great knowledge and dedication that the owners have.
All 4 of us loved the visit and would love to do it again in the near future. Highly recommended!!
Being Maltese, I really do wish this winery the very best and I'm happy that their great work is finally being recognised and will soon be more widely distributed across the island!

Church of St. John The Baptist

Come and explore the beauty that lies within this church. Learn about the history of the church and also about the transfer of another small 17th century church which was on the same site of the modern church today. Take a lift to the Terrace of the Dome to enjoy a panoramic view of the marvelous island of Gozo. "Forget your troubles and admire god's creation" It is simply a must ...

Fantastic blue hole frequented by divers and swimmers. Amazing to snorkel in the clear Wate and look down into the navy blue waters to watch the divers descend and ascend. Be prepared to trick walk through rocky area to reach the pool

Wied il-Ghasri

Reviewed By profjoypc - Alnwick, United Kingdom

A road from the main square in the village of Ghasri leads to this incredibly beautiful valley called Weid il Ghasri. As you progress along it you pass some wonderul traditional farmhouses and come to beautiful small chapel dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary. The valley ends at the sea and the final stages of it are a narrow pathway wedged between steep cliffs that leads to a pebbly beach and place for swimming in the inlet. The valley is a superb place for walking, especially in the spring and early autumn. The whole has a feel of unspolit tranquility.

Kayak Gozo

Kayak Gozo is proud to offer Malta's best kayaking tours. Experienced and beginner kayakers can enjoy a paddle along the towering cliffs of the west coast, have a snorkel in the Blue Lagoon, snap a selfie while gliding through natural arches, catch a glimpse of flying fish, go rock hopping along Comino Island, and explore caves and bays otherwise inaccessible by land. What are you waiting for?

Probably the best day of my week holiday in Malta. Nice people and good photography. More kayak less boats! Floating right on the sea level is the experience to try. Enjoy it
