Description An excursion entirely dedicated to discovering the traditions, history and cuisine of Malta: fishing villages with their colourful boats, Birgu (or Vittoriosa), one of the three historic cities of Malta and a tasting session of typical local dishes to fully appreciate the spirit and culture of this fantastic island.

What we will see
  • Visit to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk with its stone houses and typical colourful boats
  • Visit to Birgu (Vittoriosa), one of the three historic cities of Malta: stroll in the centre among the historic buildings
  • Tasting session of typical local dishes in a Birgu restaurant

What we will do
  • We set off on our tour to discover Malta on a coach taking us to the fishing village of Marsaxlokk, a picturesque town in the extreme south-east of Malta boasting stone houses and colourful boats (known as luzzi*) ranging from red, blue, green and yellow with the fishing nets laid out to dry in the sun. We have some free time available to stroll around the alleyways, discover its bars and snap a few pictures.
  • After visiting Marsaxlokk, we head back to our coach to reach the city of Vittoriosa (Birgu in Maltese), one of the Three Cities* that, together with Senglea (or Isla) and Cospicua (or Bormla) represents the cradle of Maltese history and culture. Birgu was the first seat of the Knights of Malta and the name “Vittoriosa” derives from the victory during the Great Siege of Malta in 1565 and is considered one of the most monumental areas in Malta. We go on a walk around the city centre to admire historic buildings such as Fort St Angelo and the Inquisitor's Palace.
  • Before returning to the port and our ship, we stop at a Birgu restaurant for a tasting session of typical Maltese products.
