Malta Movie Tour
Visiting Mdina Medieval City, Rabat, San Anton Gardens & Valletta. (SE7)


Often dubbed as the Hollywood of the Mediterranean many movies have been filmed in Malta over the years – POPEYE, MIDNIGHT EXPRESS, GALDIATOR, TROY, MUNICH etc… However, one of the most famous productions was GAMES OF THRONES first season.

Our tour includes a combination of sightseeing at locations which have been used during the filming of Movies and Games of Thrones.

We start with the old town of Rabat and the medieval city of Mdina. From Rabat we will take a short stroll from the central piazza (a scene featured in the 2005 movie ‘MUNICH’) and along the historical main street where you can admire the old houses, alleys, traditional balconies amongst other typical old town characteristics. This short stroll will bring us to Mdina. As you enter the main Mdina gate get your cameras ready, you will be entering the location used as ‘Kings Landing’ during Games of Thrones first season. Besides the usual walking tour of Mdina, it is interesting to know that Mdina was also featured in the movie GLADIATOR (2000), COUNT OF MONTE KRISTO (2002) amongst others. Mdina is our old capital and today it is also referred to as the Silent City since it inspires tranquillity at any time of the day or night, except when they are filming movie!. The only way to really experience and enjoy this city is on foot, explore the quaint alleys, narrow streets, ancient buildings and magnificent far reaching views from the high bastion walls.

We head back to Valletta. Here we will start at the Upper Barraka Gardens, your guide will mention many movie productions that have used our famous harbour or one of the surrounding fortified locations such as Forst Ricasoli, which you can see in the distance. This fort has hosted the likes of GLADIATOR, where they built the actual gladiators arena, AGORA (2008), TROY (2003) amongst many others. We continue through some of the old streets from which scenes during certain movies can easily be recognised, including WORD WAR Z (Brad Pitt), MUNICH (a fantastic explosion scene) and THE DEVILS DOUBLE (2011). If we some time to spare your guide will take into central Valletta.

Please note we can only offer this tour if we have a guide qualified to deliver the content in its entirety. Unfortunately there are not many guides that have this qualification and therefore we urge you to request this tour as soon as possible if you are interested.
