Gozo is packed full of festive delights this Christmas

From the twinkling festive lights of Victoria to the beautifully floodlit Citadel, Gozo is a wonderful place to enjoy during Christmas.

This year’s festive activities in Gozo are bigger and brighter than ever before with celebrations taking place across the island.

For example, the Villa Rundle Gardens in Victoria have been transformed into a winter wonderland to help everyone get into the Christmas spirit.

As dusk falls, a Christmas path lights up leading to Santa’s hut at the site of the garden’s amphitheatre.

This Christmas path was created pupils at Gozo’s primary schools and workers at the Ministry for Gozo.

Most of the decorations have been created using recycled materials.

The attraction is just part of a huge programme that has been prepared for this festive season in Gozo this year.

Gozo’s Christmas festivities include cultural and fun-filled activities for all the family.

Gozo also plays host to the most popular Christmas event in the Maltese Islands, the live nativity scene in Għajnsielem.

You can roam around the nativity village at ‘Betlehem f’Għajnsielem’, be lulled by the beautiful choir voices taking part in Gozo’s second international choir festival, or enjoy the magnificent Christmas Parade along Victoria’s main streets.

On New Year’s Eve, Gozo will welcome 2019 in style with a concert in the heart of Victoria featuring The Travellers, and Jonas Blue.
