We had never hear of this place before our trip this time. We attended the evening Folklore festivities and were delighted with the food, the festivities, the dancing and of course the setting.

If you really want to start your trip off right, see this first. It's only € 9 per person and worth every cent, not the $49.00 shown on Travel Advisor. The 10 minute intro movie provides a lot of history of the island and an...More

If you're curious about building with limestone, this is definitely the place to go. The venue was fairly quiet when we visited and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. Watched the film that explains how limestone is quarried and used, and then walked...More

Limestone heritage is an old stone pit in the heart of Malta island. It is behind a large wall so that you can't see it from the street and you have to follow the signs to find this unique place. Once you have parked your...More

We are in interested in the Folklore Evening in the summer, please can you tell me as to what is included in the price of 9euro, pick up at hotel and return? Any food? and what sort of entertainment are we likely to expect, the price seems quite reasonable and we are willing to pay for the extras. Thanks
