A vital part of any trip to Malta. Involves a 30 minute film talking through the history of Malta as well as a tour of the knights hospital. It brings the whole city to life and gives understanding to the beautiful buildings of Valletta.

I would recommend anyone visiting Malta to go to watch this very worthwhile experience. You are provided with 3d glasses and headphones, and be aware that the seating moves to the story line.
