After a twenty minute ferry crossing, on setting foot in Gozo you will notice that although both islands are similar in history and development Gozo has a character entirely of its own. Gozo, which is a three hilled island, is greener and more picturesque than Malta. During this excursion, we visit the temples of Ggantija, the citadel in Victoria, the bay of Xlendi, and the Azure Window at Dwejra. Free time for shopping will also be given – Gozo is renowned for its woollen goods and handmade lace. Lunch is also included in the price of the tour.
