September 28, Sunday, 7.30 Excursion to Gozo
September 29, Monday, 19.00 Welcome reception
September 30, Tuesday, 17.30 City-tour of Valletta

September 28 (start on 7.30 a.m.): one-day excursion to Gozo

Gozo is the island of Myths and Mysteries. Its history goes back to 5000 B.c. when a group from Sicily succeeded in crossing over on some form of sea-craft.There is a suggestion that Gozo might have been settled earlier than Malta. Gozo is the second largest island of the Maltese Archipelago that consists of three islands known as Gozo, Comino and mainland Malta. Compared to its neighbour islands, Gozo is more rural and known for its scenic hills. It is rich in historical locations such as the Ġgantija temples, which are the world's oldest free-standing structures, as well as the world's oldest religious structures.

October 3: excursion to Sicily (Italy) with visiting of Etna volcano (100 Euro)

Start in the morning (7 a.m., duration of the trip Malta - Sicily - 2 hours by Ferry), coming back in the late evening (start from Sicily on 9 p.m.)

Sicily is an autonomous region of Italy and the largest island in the Mediterranean with an area of 25,708 km² (9,926 sq. miles) and five million inhabitants. The place where the mountains meet the sea, Sicilia is the island in the sun, home to Heavenly beaches, majestic mountains and Europe's greatest natural wonder, Mount Etna. The Etna, rising in the center of a volcanic area of Sicily, is the highest active volcano in Europe (3,323 meters). It is also one of the world's most active volcanoes. Sicily has beckoned seafaring wanderers since the trials of Odysseus were first sung in Homer's Odyssey. Strategically poised between Europe and Africa, this mystical land of three corners and a fiery volcano was the site of two of the most enlightened capitals of Europe: the ancient Greek city at Siracusa, and, in medieval times, the Arab-Norman one at Palermo. The island has been a melting pot of great Mediterranean cultures: Greek and Roman; then Arab and Norman; and finally French, Spanish, and Italian. Sicily reflects these influences in a rich tapestry of art and architecture that includes massive Romanesque cathedrals, two of the best-preserved Greek temples in the world, Roman amphitheaters, and baroque palaces and churches. Thirty centuries of history expressed in the Classical, the Romanesque, the Gothic, the Baroque...

October 4: excursion to Mdina; guided tour around MALTA, panorama of the Grand Harbour Marina (40 Euro)

Mdina (also sometimes called Medina) is the old capital of Malta. It is a medieval town, with narrow quiet streets, situated in the centre of the island . It is also known as the "Silent City". It commands a magnificent view of the Island. Evidence for settlement in Mdina goes back to over 4000 BC. Today, no cars (other than those of a limited number of residents, emergency vehicles, wedding cars and hearses) are allowed in Mdina and there is a calming atmosphere as one walks along its narrow stone streets and ways. The city displays an unusual mix of Norman and Baroque architecture, including several palaces, most of which serve as private homes. The Sicula-Norman Cathedral (11 century) is worth visiting and is fronted by a large beautiful square.
