A charming ferry ride from Cirkewwa brings you to Gozo, a small island with a rugged landscape and beautiful coastline.

There is so much to see here, starting with the two massive Ghantija Temples, which may have been built 6,000 years ago. Legend has it that they were the work of giants. Archaeologists believe the temples to be the world's oldest, freestanding structures.

Next, you will visit another famed ancient site on Gozo - Calypso Cave, thought to be the cave described in Homer's "Odyssey," where the sea nymph Calypso kept Odysseus for seven years. While the island is a place of myth and legend, there is no denying its importance during the Roman period, which you will discover in Rabat, where St. Paul is said to have lived after being shipwrecked in 60 A.D.

Following lunch at a local restuarant, you will have some free time to explore the fishing village of Xlendi, which is famous for its tower, which was built in the mid-1600s to protect the bay.

Please note: On Sunday an external visit and explanation of the Cathedral will be done.
