Running Tour Three Cities

Birgu, Cospicua and Senglea in one go

Running through the Three Cities


The Three Cities offer an intriguing insight into Malta and its history. Left largely unvisited, these cities offer a glimpse of the authentic local lifestyle as well as a look into Malta's maritime fortunes. The Three Cities can rightly claim to be the cradle of Maltese history, as Birgu, Senglea and Cospicua have provided a home and fortress to almost every people who settled on the Islands.

Running through the Birgu's walls where the actual Great Seige in 1565 took place through its streets, palaces, churches, bastions and heading towards the harbour area will be a great to discover the first home to the Knights of St. John.

We'll explore the Birgu Marina with all its luxurious yachts and running towards Fort Saint Angelo and then making all the way to explore Senglea. With stairs to climb and bridges to cross we'll moving towards the Cospicua's coast line and then finish our run inside the main City Gate of Birgu.
