With the Malta Filming Locations Private Tour, you’ll have the chance to explore them all.
This exclusive adventure will take you through many of the island’s most beautiful locations. Stopping off in various parts of Valletta, Marsa, The Three Cities and Ricasoli, you will discover the sites of your favourite iconic movie scenes. And because you will be travelling in a small group, the itinerary of the Malta Filming Locations Private Tour works around your specific needs.
Many of the locations that you will visit on this tour are also important landmarks in Maltese history. The real-life stories behind these sites are sometimes even more exciting than the movies that they featured in. Fort Ricasoli is one such place. Built in the late-1600s, it guards the east coast of the island. The army used the fortress during the French invasion in 1798, and bombs damaged it during World War II. On the big screen, however, it featured as Rome in Ridley Scott’s Gladiator. The video game inspired Assassin’s Creed also made use of Fort Ricasoli, as well as Fort Delimara and Fort Manoel.
But it’s not just Malta’s historical monuments that have featured on cinema screens. Even its cities’ streets have helped to film iconic movie scenes. The Malta Filming Locations Private Tour will be sure to show you the passageways that caught the imaginations of famous directors. Such as Steven Spielberg. He used many of the island’s bustling streetscapes in the movie Munich.
However, the best example of a Malta filming location has to be the Popeye Village.
Used in the children’s film from 1980, this small coastal shantytown was built specifically for the production. Although that was nearly 40 years ago, the village has been preserved in honour of the character, and as a homage to the late Robin Williams. Walking through its streets you’ll be reminded of this beloved movie and the iconic scenes featuring Williams as the spinach-loving sailor.
