Go in the morning, the afternoons are too hot and too busy. The walled streets hold the heat so take plenty of water. The place is full of history. You have to pay to visit the museums, prison and cathedral, get your ticket from the...More

The Citadel was such a great piece of history and is maintained so nicely. The view from the top was amazing and the small restaurant near the top was really cute.

Obviously you cannot mistake the Citadel overlooking Victoria. It’s an impressive structure that is actually free to walk round. It has information scattered around it but limited to wheelchair/pushchair users. Great views if you make the effort but a warning, the museums are bonk and...More

Yes, you can walk around the citadel at night, in fact it is a lovely time to see it, as there are no tourists around. The lights of various towns can be seen on Gozo which is also great to see. We wandered up there after... More

Reference should be ok but check with the agent. He should have given you a phone number. Or ask your hotel to check.
