Think of Malta and the carnival and you’ll automatically think colour, theatrical costumes and huge carnival floats. There’s no fee for turning up in Valletta wearing a mask and costume, during Carnival time, but you must buy tickets to attend any given party – certainly for the best events. This year Hotel Phoenicia will hold one of the best traditional masked balls in the Grand Ballroom. This will be a night to remember with free Venetian masks for all and a special live performance by a renowned ABBA tribute band from the UK.

Tickets start at EUR35 and limited V.I.P Seating at EUR50.
