Maltese Sunday mornings are made for leisure. And this shopping and sightseeing combination is all about enjoying the real Malta. On this trip, you'll visit the fishing village of Marsaxlokk – one of the country's most picturesque – for its weekly market and the famous Blue Grotto.
We kick off with some shopping in Marsaxlokk. This quaint fishing village hosts a large market down by the waterfront – check out the colourfully painted ‘luzzu' boats floating in the harbour – on Sunday mornings. As well as freshly caught fish, there'll also be locally grown fruit and veg, Maltese wines, cold cuts, cheeses and leather goods.
Then we'll head to one of Malta's most famous natural sights – the Blue Grotto of Wied Iz-Zurrieq. It's a 50-metre deep natural cave with a huge arch that stretches out to sea. The caves get their name from the light reflecting off the water, which creates a dazzling blue colour. An optional boat trip into the grotto is available.
