On the 80th Anniversary of the inclusion of Malta in the Second World War, and on the 75th anniversary of the end of the same war, Heritage Malta will be organising a WWII harbour tour.
The Grand Harbour was the main target of the Axis' aerial bombings and between 1940 and 1942 witnessed some of the most ferocious attacks in history, including the famous HMS Illustrious attack. This conflict brought ever lasting change to the configuration of the Grand Harbour, and it not only resulted in the destruction of much of the towns and villages around it but also considerable loss of life.
𝑫𝒆𝒑𝒂𝒓𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒆: The Harbour Cruise will depart from the Sliema Ferries (Luzzu Cruises point) at 1900 hours SHARP and return back by 2030 hours.
𝐇𝐞𝐫𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐞 𝐌𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐚 𝐦𝐞𝐦𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐬 are to present their HM membership card together with the purchased ticket.
𝙋𝙧𝙞𝙘𝙚: €17 for adults, €15 for seniors & students (over 12 years), and €10 for HM Members & children (6 - 11 years). Children 5 years and under do not require a ticket.
(the price includes the harbour cruise only).
Please note that in the case of bad weather, this tour may be cancelled.
Temperature reading will take place and Heritage Malta reserves the right to deny access to anyone with a higher temperature of 37.2 degrees Celsius or feeling unwell.
