The Malta Illuminated Trail is Back with a new Christmas Village at Verdala Palace

Verdala Palace Gardens will once again be transformed with fantastic NEW glittering structures, and now also introducing an all New Christmas Village.

The event will once again be held in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation.  A spectacular walkabout journey through the walkways of one of Malta’s National Gem Palaces featuring hundreds of NEW larger-than-life lantern-illuminated sculptures, Light Installations, Projections and much more.

Spot glittering structures like Santa’s Toy Shop, the North Pole, Sea Life, our cute Family of Pandas and much more!   Walk through the enchanted forest, twinkling with thousands of fairy lights. The trail will also include some incredible showstoppers, amazingly illuminated paths, and irresistible selfie scenes around one of the Presidential Palace.

Once darkness sets in, the gardens will come to light and a controlled number of ticketed guests can then discover and enjoy the art of illumination and this magical festival of light in a safe and restricted manner

“It is part of the Authority’s commitment to assist and support the development and organisation of such events, which have the power to give added value to the experience of those who choose to visit Malta for their holidays, especially during the festive period, which makes this ideal also to boost the niche of family tourism, which keeps increasing in popularity, especially in this recovery period. Moreover, this also falls within our Corporate Social Responsibility endeavours, since this event is being once again organised in aid of the Malta Community Chest Fund Foundation, which provides assistance to all those in need throughout the year,” Mr Carlo Micallef, CEO of the Malta Tourism Authority said.

“The Illuminated Trail is another opportunity for families and tourists to enjoy the Christmas period at one of Malta’s picturesque locations. I am optimistic that this event will continue catapulting Malta’s prospects as a diversified touristic destination throughout the year,” outlined Minister for Tourism Clayton Bartolo
