During the tour you will be accompanied by a private guide, an expert in art and history, so that you can get every important fact and information about the points of interest you will visit.
We will go to the War Museum located in the Fortress of Saint Telmo, a place where hundreds of objects and relics of the First and Second World War were collected, as well as some objects of the Knights of St. John, since this fort also served as a bastion of resistance in medieval times against the invasion of the Ottomans.
There, you will see an Italian torpedo boat, a fighter plane, different military uniforms and an endless number of objects that will transport you to the historical and warlike past of the country.
Also, on this WWII tour we will go to the war rooms. These tunnels dug under the civilization were used as a working room for planning military strategies and for treating some of the war wounded. Up to 1,000 people worked in them, including soldiers and medical personnel.
These war rooms served as Malta’s military defense base and later functioned as a NATO operations office.
We know that everything you will see on this tour will surprise you. It will be one of those rides hard to forget.

This set of bunkers represents an imposing entrance. They are subway constructions made by the British to operate underground to avoid Nazi bombing.
The war rooms are located about 40 meters below the surface and comprise an immense network of tunnels in which lamps, maps and many objects used to plan military strategies are still preserved.
Later, between 1967 and 1977, these tunnels served as a base for NATO negotiations.
