Marsaxlokk Fishing Village
Marsaxlokk is a small fishing village with a population of around 4,000 located on the south-eastern coast of Malta located at the shoreline of the second largest port in Malta.
Traditional Fishing Boats - A local characteristic of these wooden boats is that they create a particular scenic effect, painted in bright red, green, yellow and blue. This fishing boat is called 'luzzu' in Maltese and in themselves are an attraction to many tourists who visit this location all year round.
The colours reflect beautifully in the blue sea of the bay. The fishing boat design is said to date back to 800 BC when the Phoenicians came to Malta. They have the traditional eye of osiris on both sides of the front bow of the boats.
It is a very quiet village compared to others, with few cars passing through. But at the same time, it has become a touristic attraction with many fish restaurants and cafes lined along the promenade.
Return transport, entrance fees and a fully licensed guide are all included on the day.
Tales of a Silent City
The city of Mdina is commonly called the "Silent City" by natives and visitors, set high up on a hill with its high walls and bastions it is a spectacular sight. On the day you will have the opportunity to enjoy a guided tour of the magnificent old capital, during which your guide will share with you its rich history and best-kept secrets.
You will be given free time to spend as you choose, you may wish to take in the panoramic views, visit the Mdina Cathedral, enjoy a spot of lunch or wander into the neighbouring village of Rabat.
In the afternoon, see local craftsmen at their finest at the Ta Qali Crafts village. Ta Qali was used as an airfield during the second world war. The old Nissan huts that once housed planes and artillery have now been converted into local artisan huts, boasting local glass, pottery art, and much more.

Plenty of opportunities will be given to shop and maybe purchase a local souvenir to remind you of the day.
