The island of Gozo has become a popular tourist venue for day trips and tours around the island. During our 5 day trip to Malta, we decided to hop on over to spend a day in Gozo.
The Gozo Channel Ferry trip from the mainland of Malta to Gaza takes about 20 minutes. The views from the ferry are fantastic, giving lots of photo ops. Once we arrived in Gozo we decided to take a City Sightseeing Tour on the Hop on Hop off Busses. Even with all my travels throughout the years this was my first time taking an actual sightseeing tour bus tour, and I’m so glad we did!
The great option the buses provides is the ability to jump off at any of the tour stops, stay a while, and then jump back on with the next bus. The buses literally travel all around the entire island, stopping at the most popular and important attractions Gozo has to offer. The tickets cost 15 Euros per person, which we were able to buy on the Ferry.
The day we spent in Gozo was a bit chilly, considering the winter season so we spent most of the tour on the inside of the bus (though we did brave a few stops on top for the incredible views). We also took a short boat trip at one of the stops, into tunnels and amazing rock formations that surround the island.
Gozo is an incredibly beautiful island; and if you have an extra day for sightseeing during your Malta trip, plan a day trip to the island.
