Every Sunday morning Marsaxlokk is transformed from a peaceful fishing village to a bustling marketplace. The Sunday fish 🐟 market is renowned across the island as the place to be for the freshest seafood around. Straight from the fishermen’s morning catch, don’t be surprised if some of the fish is so fresh it’s still moving! Arrive early to avoid the crowds and enjoy the first pick of the beautiful produce. Direct from the fisherman means lower prices so grab a bargain and don’t be afraid to haggle yourself an even better deal.

Those less fond of fish are not neglected. Surrounding stalls abound with Maltese produce of all kinds. From local honey 🐝 and preserves to fresh vegetables 🍆 🍅, pastries and sweets, the market is a banquet of all things delicious. For the perfect souvenir, why not purchase some traditional Maltese lace? Any trip to Marsaxlokk is incomplete without a meal 🍛 at one of its fantastic restaurants 🍴, so why not complete your market experience by sampling the produce over some Sunday lunch? You truly can’t get more authentic than this.
Due to the market’s popularity, it is serviced by regular buses 🚍 from Valletta. On Sundays route 85 runs every twenty minutes from the main terminus.

Visit Malta’s two natural deep sea harbours, Marsamxett Harbour and the splendid Grand Harbour, with Captain Morgan’s Grand Harbour Cruise. Departing from the Sliema Strand, the boat tour takes you around Sliema Creek, Manoel Island, the yacht marina, Pieta Creek, exploring the Grand Harbour and the Three Cities. During the cruise you will visit various creeks and admire forts, fortifications and bastions on either side of Malta’s unique capital city, Valletta, from the spectacular vantage point of the sea.

As you enjoy various sights on the relaxing cruise, a detailed commentary will guide you through the area’s historic defence structures as well as the events of the famous Great Siege of Malta, which took place in 1565. With its comprehensive narrative, the Grand Harbour Cruise is a great way to learn about the island’s rich past and the Grand Harbour’s imposing bastions. By water, you can experience close up views of several forts, including Fort St. Elmo, on the tip of Valletta’s peninsula, and Fort St. Angelo in Birgu, understanding the importance of the defensive walls and fortifications that have served Malta over many years. Today, the fortifications surrounding Valletta form part of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The tour is well organised and lasts an hour and a half, while the experienced crew on board the modern boat are helpful and knowledgeable, ensuring your Grand Harbour Cruise is enjoyable as well as informative.

St. Paul’s Catacombs are located in Rabat near St Paul’s church 💒, outside the walls of the ancient Roman capital of Melita, today’s Mdina. The catacombs are a complex of subterranean cemeteries used by Romans to bury their dead. During Roman times burial grounds were located on the outskirts of towns as Roman law prohibited city burials.
Over 30 hypogea are contained within the large area of the St. Paul and St. Agatha site. Dating to the 4th century AD, this extensive underground burial site is the earliest archaeological evidence of Christianity in Malta. Early Christians escaped persecution by using the catacombs to meet and celebrate mass. Interconnected galleries and tombs form this fascinating labyrinth. A small museum at the entrance to the catacombs contains a fascinating collection of Roman and Phoenician artefacts. The whole site is managed by Heritage Malta and can be accessed with their Multisite Pass. Opening hours are from 9:00 to 17:00 when tickets can be purchased on site. St Paul’s Catacombs can be reached by bus from the main bus terminus in Valletta, that stops in Rabat and just outside the walls of Mdina.

Begin exploring Gozo with a visit to Victoria, the islands’ charming capital city. The town was named Victoria in 1887 in honour of the British monarch’s Golden Jubilee, however to old Gozitans it is still known as Ir-Rabat. The city comprises of the Citadel, an ancient fortified city considered the crown of Gozo, the surrounding old town as well as its modern developments.

Victoria has plenty historic sites and cultural places of interest that are worth seeing while in Gozo. Pjazza Indipendenza (Independence Square), also referred to as 'it-Tokk', is the main square in the centre of town. The most prominent building in the square is the Banca Giuratale, the former seat of the municipal government of Gozo which today hosts the Victoria Local Council. Shops, cafes and a lively open air market selling various merchandise in the mornings are situated around Independence Square. Small narrow streets surround the splendid St George Basilica in the centre of the oldest part of town. While several museums such as the Gozo Museum of Archeology and the Gozo Nature Museum are located within the Citadel, the Villa Rundle Public Gardens are located on Republic Street in the centre of Victoria.

Rabat is the historic suburb of Malta’s old capital city, Mdina. Narrow streets wind off the imposing parish church of St Paul which dominates the main square. Rabat’s history can be seen from all angles. Look out for local shops and bakeries and try a traditional loaf of Hobza straight from the oven. For those who enjoy museums, the Roman Villa, Wignacourt Museum and Casa Bernard are all within walking distance and the Catacombs of St Paul and St Agatha house burials dating back to Roman times, decorated with beautiful frescoes.

On Sunday mornings, Rabat comes to life with a thriving and bustling street market. Each week, the Monti is packed with street hawkers selling their wares. The main street becomes a hub of activity as locals gather to purchase fresh produce. Rabat is also the perfect location to try Malta’s favourite snack, Pastizzi. Lying on the outskirts of town, Tas-Sirkin is always full, with customers spilling onto the pavements and is reputed to serve the very best. The Silent City may be Rabat’s neighbour but this bustling town is something equally special. Home to a main bus terminal, Rabat is also easy to access via key routes including the 53 from Valletta and the X3 from Bugibba.
