La Passeggiata606 viewsDefinition: As evening falls and the harsh sun inches out of the your favorite piazza, an evening ritual is bound to begin, the Italian/Maltese tradition of passeggiata, a gentle stroll (slow! think slow!) through the main streets of the old town.
Locals tend to dress up for passeggiata, and tourists are usually easy to spot in their shorts and fanny packs. Older folks sit along the route, nursing a beer or a glass of wine in the bar, and watching for things to gossip about; la passeggiata is where new romances are on display as well as new shoes.
