This tour has two parts. First you go to an amphitheter and watch a quite interesting short film for the history of Malta. Then follows an escorted tour to the former hospital the Knights of Malta had built.

We arrived early for the show so had a spot of lunch in the cafe here. The ticket included the tour of the hospital as well. The first thing you do is watch a film about Malta's history which is so informative - it was lovely to be able to join the dots with places that have visited on our holiday and past memories shared by family. You then go over the road to The Knights Hospitallers. Thanks to our guide who was so interesting as she passed on the history of the hospital in yester-year but also in its new life as a conference facility- the building is impressive to say the least - its history. Malta may be a small island but it has had a massive impact on key events in world history. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.

Dear Guest,
What a lovely review - thank you! One small note... the tour you did was actually the La Sacra Infermeria Tour. The Knights Hospitalliers is a different attraction. We are so pleased you enjoyed your time with us!
Kind regards,

Very interesting and informative movie, but the highlight was the guided hospital tour afterwards. Fantastic building and the best guide I ever come across. Many thanks to you Anna, this is something we will treasure. Visited Tuesday 24 May for the 12 o'clock show.

You can't visit Malta without knowing the history. Stunning venue and professional staff. Good value for money. Lovely views of the Bell.
