You can have a great walk and explore around the whole of the citadel giving you amazing views of Gozo, there are also various little shops and you can visit the cathedral (charged) which is quite an amazing building in itself

It lovely to visit the Citadel when you're in Gozo. You will find out about the history behind it then roam around and even have some ice cream or coffee. My dog Millie enjoyed it too :)
