How was Carnival a controversial matter?

This will be the most amazing experience of Valletta you will get while trying different foods and drinks of these islands whether the traditional stuff or the more contemporary things.

You will be shown the beautiful Maltese Capital City in between of the different stops where we try all the food and drinks. You can rest assured this excursion will double up as your lunch for the day and give you lots of advice on where to eat throughout the rest of your stay.

What's Included

A nice bottle of local beer at one of the Valletta clubs to wash down the ftira with.

The Maltese have pastizzi for breakfast and we will let you decide whether you like the pea or ricotta ones better.

We end our morning having some nice ftira lunchtime bread which we traditionally fill with tuna chunks, tomato conserve, onions, capers, olives and other Mediterranean produce.

We get to taste the local bitter sweet drink, Kinnie.

We get to try the cooked infused Maltese coffee with chicory, cloves and aniseed.

We're sure you will love the fried date pastry sweet which we call imqaret. We also taste the baked cheese snack called Twistees and some sea salt chocolate along with the coffee.
