2. Re: day trip to gozo

we got a bus (in 2011) from Sliema ferries (thats were it started) to Cirkewa (Malta to gozo ferry terminal), when we got to Gozo a friend dropped us off at Rabat (Victoria), then we decided to hire a car (driving in Gozo is much easier & parking was no problem wherever we went). We saw so much more by having a car. But if you still dont want to hire a car once in Gozo, there are the HopOnHopOff buses but you dont see everything this way. If you hire a car once in Gozo you can get the first ferry to Gozo & the last ferry back to Malta to maximise your day.

To get the most out of your one day trip to Gozo you will need a car.

To be honest, the Ho-Ho tour on Gozo is likely to cover pretty much most of what there is to see. There are two companies operating them (see tripadvisor.co.uk/ShowTopic-g190313-i1745-k4… ), but the green "Gozo" sightseeing tour is the easiest to use as it does the same route every 45 minutes.

Not sure if it is too late replying on the subjec of DAY TRIP TO GOZO

As few have mentioned that the Hop-on-hop-off pretty covers the important parts of this 3x9 miles beautifula Island of Calypso.

Once arriving to Mgarr by ferry from Cirkewwa Malta, there is a buss run by Arriva that can take you to Victoria. Best is to buy a full day ticket from your starting point (Mgarr) , get the information of all the other roots around the island, Suggestions where to go in Gozo . Need to start your day early from Malta, so at least you can arrive in Gozo between 8 and 9am

Starting by walking around the Capital's narrow streets, visiting the Basilica of St. George, The Citadel Basions and the Cathedral of St. Mary. Before heading back to the Bus Terminus, stop for a cup of coffee and some pastizzi from one of the manty caffees in Victoria's main squire. You can opt to go first to DWEJRA the inland Sea, the Ta' Pinu Sanctuary, back to Victoria where you can take the bus to Xlendi Bay and perhaps take lunch there. From Xlendi you can take the bus to Victoria and stay on the same bus , it will transfare to Marsalforn Bay which will go all the way to Qbajjar Bay before it stops at the Marsalforn Front.While in Marsalforn you can walk around and enjoy the area, if you have'nt had lunch at Xlendi, Marsalforn is the place to lunch.

From Marsalforn you can take a different bus that goes to Mgarr, but the same bus goes to Ramla Bay - Gigantija Temples, passes through Nadur and Qala and then to Mgarr for the Ferry. All busses run every hour on most of the runs, you will get most of the information need at the Bus Ternminus at Victoria. Have a nice trip to Gozo, and next time make Gozo your Prior Destination.

Hi Radar,

Thanks for a full itinerary for a day in Gozo, I am also going to Malta for a holiday soon and you have convinced me that I should also visit Gozo! Grazzi. Colin.
