Graffiti & Street Art Tours
Malta Has Some Seriously Stare-Worthy Street Art, And Here’s Some Of Our Favourites
The fierce glare of the sun. The ocher-colored tones that adorn the island’s medieval architecture. The unimaginable blue of the Mediterranean Sea.
And perhaps most shocking — the graffiti.
Luckily for everyone who loves staring at street art, Malta has more than its fair share of beautiful murals and graffiti that bring a lot of colour to the island’s streets.
There are many different styles which showcase the talents of the artists behind them… and here are some of our favourite examples.
Malta’s murals have become a real talking point with beautiful big designs brightening up tired spaces and bare walls across the island.
The first piece of public street art was produced in 2005 and new paintings and street art designs are popping up all the time in places like Msida, St Julian’s, Sliema, Mosta, Fgura, San Gwann, Pembroke and Floriana.

WHERE DOES THE TOUR GO?
The murals and street art are located across the island. So we will be heading north, south, east and west! Our private transport will take care of all the arrangements.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Comfortable walking shoes are a must. The tour is outside, so please dress according to the weather. You’ll probably want a good camera to take pictures of or with the artwork. You may also want to bring some water or coffee to stay hydrated.
IS THE TOUR OUTSIDE THE ENTIRE TIME?
Yes. As this tour is a street art tour, we will be outside for the majority of the tour with the exception for the stops we have along the way at various coffee shops for a bathroom break.
HOW LONG IS THE TOUR?
The tour takes about 3 hours and we’ll walk about 2 km total.
IS THERE A BATHROOM ALONG THE ROUTE?
Yes. The tour stops at a few places along the route. After about 30-45 minutes, we stop at a coffee shop which also has a restroom. We end the tour in Sliema where there are numerous bars and restaurants nearby. There are also numerous cafes and restaurants along the route, in case you need to make a stop on your own.
WHO IS THE TOUR MEANT FOR?
If you enjoy art, murals, street art or appreciate getting to know a city and the neighborhoods within it, this is the tour for you.
DO THE MURALS OR THE ROUTE EVER CHANGE?
Definitely. This is a living gallery. A mural may be on the tour one day and may be gone the next day. We do not control the artists and we do not control the city departments. We are simply observers and educators trying to share our passion for Malta’s street art scene with those that are interested.
WHAT IF I DON’T ENJOY THE TOUR?
We want to make sure everyone enjoys the tour, but for whatever reason you do not just reach out to us at [email protected] and we’ll absolutely make it right.
