Discover the culture and cuisine of this unique Mediterranean island in a food-filled three hour walking trail packed with curious and exciting information

Love food? Love culture? Are you looking to sample the delights of Maltese cuisine? Both Valletta and Mdina boast some of the most exciting and memorable eateries on the Island.

Valletta, the capital city of Malta, is located in the south east of the island, between Marsamxett Harbour to the west and the Grand Harbour to the east. The city was officially recognised as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1980. In the last few years it has taken on a new life and vibrance, not least in the culinary field. This is what prompted The Definitive(ly) Good Guide Company to extend their expertise in the food sector by launching this latest venture; ‘Offbeat Malta Food Trails’, food tours offering a sumptuous glimpse into this world of local restaurants and gourmet food shops.

Valletta, Malta

Due to their outstanding success, these tours have expanded to Mdina, a fortified city in the Northern Region of Malta, which served as the island’s capital from antiquity to the medieval period. The city is still confined within its walls and has a population of just under 300. Mdina is on the tentative list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Mdina, Malta

With two tours a week; Wednesday in Mdina and Saturday in Valletta, you should be able to take one in during your stay in Malta. It’s worth it!

These tours are the ideal start to your vacation as attendees are provided with an overview of two of Malta’s main historical cities by a licensed tour guide who incorporates tasty titbits and anecdotes about the food that is sampled.
