A trip to Malta during the summer months wouldn’t be complete without witnessing a spectacular village feast, or in Maltese, festa. The evening is certainly a feast for the senses – watch the stunning aerial firework display; hear the magnificent brass band; spectacle at the colourful street decorations and procession; taste the traditional nougat sweets, as well as other delicious treats; and to top it all, wonder at the beautifully adorned parish church situated at the centre of the festivities. This coach trip will pick you up from your hotel on the night of the festa and take you back, late in the evening, often as the procession comes to an end at the local church. Once you’ve been to one festa, you will want book for the next one immediately!
