Extraordinary 3 week holidays:

February 5-27, 2024

February 19- March 12, 2024

March 4-26, 2024

 

A lovely year-round climate, 7000 years of history, and a Mediterranean lifestyle that is second to none.  Discover Malta, the hidden gem of the Mediterranean, with an unforgettable 3-night stay in Paris en route!

Malta is a small island in the middle of the Mediterranean with a rich history and tranquil ambience that summons tourists from around the world.  Its stunning natural beauty, vibrant culture, unique heritage, and warm hospitality make Malta the true gem of the Mediterranean and an unforgettable bucket list destination.

You’ll begin your holiday with a special 3-night stay in the sparkling City of Light, Paris.  Immerse yourself in the city’s enchanting sites and delights at your leisure.  A private city tour of Paris’ most iconic landmarks is included, and your Travac Tours Director will be happy to provide suggestions for optional outings to make the most of your stay.  Your hotel, Novotel Paris Les Halles, is brilliantly located just a 10-minute walk to the Louvre.

Your European cultural adventure then continues on to beautiful Malta.  History lovers will be in their element in Malta, discovering ancient temples, underground necropolises, and other man-made structures older than the Egyptian pyramids, some of which date back 7000 years. Due to Malta’s geographical position, it has been of great strategic significance over the centuries and is dotted with fortified cities, defensive walls and towers, as well as an excellent National War Museum.  The Canadian Air Force played a significant role in Malta in World War II, during the island’s darkest days.

Malta’s historic 17th century capital, Valletta, is known for its stunning Baroque architecture.  A UNESCO World Heritage Site, it has over 300 monuments each with special significance. Further north, the breathtaking golden vistas and calm turquoise waters of Golden Bay provide a serene, relaxing escape to city life.  Mdina, the “Silent City”, with its medieval fortress and astonishing views allows you to step back in time while exploring its charming alleys and archeological sites, while the caverns of the Blue Grotto and the historic fishing village of Marsaxlokk provide the opportunity to discover the diverse maritime culture that exists on this extraordinary island.

Travac wants you to enjoy all of these attractions and many more while basking in Malta’s gorgeous balmy weather on this fabulous holiday.  Join us!

 

Your hotel during your stay in Malta is the new AX Odycy in Qawra (St. Paul’s Bay).

Property Location

With a stay at the newly reconstructed AX Odycy in Qawra, you’ll be near the bay and minutes from the Malta National Aquarium and Bugibba Beach. This 4-star hotel is within close proximity of fabulous restaurants, attractions, as well as St Paul’s Island.

Malta is very diverse. The history is still evident today and dates back as far as the Neolithic period. Many temples are scattered around the island and “Ggantija” is said to be one of the oldest surviving, free-standing monuments in the world, predating Stonehenge by around 1,000 years! Thanks to their strategic position in the Mediterranean, the Maltese islands have played a crucial role in the making of history too, including the wars between Rome and Carthage, the Second World War and the Cold War, but it was perhaps the period of the Crusades which left the biggest impression. When the Knights Hospitaller of St John were driven out of Rhodes and handed Malta by Charles V, they bequeathed palaces, forts, cathedrals, an abundance of art and, of course, the Maltese Cross. Malta is also a very exciting destination. You can enjoy boat rentals and plenty of beach activities. If you’re a movie buff “The Da Vinci Code” and “Troy” along with many others were filmed here. It was also the location for the series “Game of Thrones”. Although your time is free to discover Malta on your own, your Travac Tours Director will assist you with optional tours, outings, and activities throughout your stay.
