Lascaris War Rooms Tours and Activities

Buried deep underneath the Upper Barracca Gardens in the heart of Valletta’s atmospheric old town, the Lascaris War Rooms are secreted away in a warren of subterranean manmade tunnels and were the nerve center from which Allied commanders directed air and sea forces in the Mediterranean Sea during World War II. From here General Eisenhower and Field Marshal Montgomery coordinated the Invasion of Sicily in 1943 and the defence of Malta was organized during the Nazi blitz bombing of the island in 1940–43. After the war the tunnels became HQ of the British Navy’s Mediterranean fleet and, during the Cold War of the 1960s, a NATO strategic communication center.

Today this once-secret two-story complex of tunnels, secret offices, radar systems, encryption machines, telephone exchanges and sleeping quarters are open for all to explore. Carefully restored in 2009 and now staffed by waxwork models instead of great generals, this war-era time capsule has as its heart the operations rooms where all military maneuvers were monitored. All tours (guided or self-guided) begin with a Pathé newsreel broadcast showing the journey of a supply convoy from Britain to Malta and highlighting the plight of the island during World War II. It’s best to get there early or buy a ticket ahead of time to jump the lines; history buffs often combine the War Rooms with a visit to Valletta’s National War Museum.

Small-Group E-Scooter Malta Sightseeing Tour with Ferry Ride

This extremely fun e-scooter tour gives visitors an introduction to Malta’s most popular coastal towns, with a cruise around the promenade that is characteristic of Sliema and St. Julian’s. Feel like one of the ‘in’ crowd as you pass by the towns’ most widely frequented beach clubs. Then just before you catch your first ferry of the day to the island’s capital, take in views of its stunning fortifications at Tigné Point. This will present the first of many wonderful spots to take photos. Once in Valletta, you can admire the imposing entrance, with the Triton Fountain and the particular design of the Parliament House. This is followed by a cruise through Valletta’s most charming streets, stopping off at various places of interest, such as the Siege bell war memorial and the Lower and Upper Barakka Gardens. The last part of the tour features a second ferry ride to the gorgeously unspoilt Three Cities, starting off with a cruise around the marinas and Fort. St. Angelo.
