Exploring Victoria

Nice views of Gozo, really cool to walk around here. Lots of narrow alleyways. Museum, cathedral all at the same location. There's an entry fee to go to the cathedral & museum

A very nice visit and walk around 'Cittadella'. We got to view an interesting video before we started on foot. Nice views of the island from the top of the fort.

What an amazing place and so well organised. On my previous visits to Gozo it was closed and shrouded in scaffolding. They must have spent millions of Euros on it but it is a wonderful restoration. There are several attractions within the place for which there is a nominal charge but after visiting the prison you will be advised which... More

Victoria is anyhow a little higher than the rest of the island. But from the Citedal, you have breathtaking views around the island. The renovations were carries out so carefully, that you would think nothing happened in the last 400 years. Great experience.

Went to The Citadel on our tour of Gozo. This is a very, very old piece of history. Huge walls to keep opposing armies out. In tact are a lot of old elements of the structure. Great views from the top of the walls. Very beautiful and worth the visit while on the Island of Gozo.

This is open all the time for wandering and visiting. It can surely get busy with tour groups so better to go early in the day.

Visited this place on our tour when visiting the island of Gozo. Good experience,the structure, the art, the history it offers is amazing. Deffinately a visit but need moo time. As our visit was part of the tour we dint get enough time to explore the site as much but whatever we could explore was deffinately worth it.

No visit it to Gozo is complete without a visit to theCitadel, aka the Citadella. Worth the climb up,or take the elevator from. The visitor centre. Breath-taking views of the island where time stood still, a journey back in time, and a relaxing sojourn.
