Following the success of the Harbour Cruise recently organized by Heritage Malta and as part of the “Qatt ma Ninsa” event to be held on the 15th of June at the Malta Maritime Museum, Heritage Malta will be organizing another Fortifications Harbour Tour on Sunday 15th June.
The event should entice all those who love Malta for its cultural heritage and its beautiful sea and who are keen for a relaxing yet educational treat.
“The Fortifications Harbour Cruise” will include a guided tour of the Harbour area by boat, taking those present into the various creeks around the Grand Harbour and Marsamxett, such as French Creek, Marsa Creek and Lazaretto.
The tour will set sail from the Birgu Waterfront at 10:00hrs sharp. Heritage Malta curator of Fort St Angelo, Matthew Balzan, will describe the fortifications with a special focus on the Knights of St John and the British during and after World War II.
Those who opt to join the tour will have free entrance to the Malta Maritime Museum (hosting the “Qatt ma Ninsa” event, formerly called Life at Sea) and Inquisitor’s Palace between 09.00hrs and 16.30hrs, as well as a complimentary publication. Upon return, from the harbour tour, a light snack will be served on the Malta Maritime Museum terrace overlooking the Birgu waterfront.
Tickets, available on a first come first served basis, can be purchased from all Heritage Malta sites and museums as well as online: http://shop.heritagemalta.org
