Corinthia Hotel St. George’s Bay in Malta introduces “Villages Experience” program

Corinthia Hotel St. George’s Bay in Malta is helping promote travel with a difference, the first of which is a Villages Experience.

From this month, guests of the hotel will have the chance to meet local artisans in three typically Maltese villages; Safi, Kirkop and Mqabba for a chance to discover the real Malta and Gozo through its people and culture.

Locals in these three villages will share their stories, legends, cuisine, music, folklore and crafts during what are five to seven-hour small tours that leave mid-afternoon. The choices are:

·       A visit to the small village of Safi to marvel at the Phoenician catacombs, meet Nenu the local blacksmith, listen to live music from Pauline and Jonathan and enjoy a three-course dinner of typical Maltese food. Tuesdays, 3-10 pm

·       A visit to Kirkop to learn all about the local industry of stone sculpting from Michael and goat’s cheese production from Gusa and savor a selection of snacks. Thursdays, 3-8 pm

·       Explore Mqabba with its Mintna catacombs and old hospital. Spend time learning how to make typical street decorations and enjoy a three-course Maltese dinner before returning to the hotel. Fridays, 3-10 pm.

Tour prices vary depending on the size of the group and the tour chosen. Bookable through the hotel’s Guest Relations desk.

The hotel has partnered with the Malta Tourism Society and the University of Malta to help push this community-based sustainable tourism experience.
