2 reviews of Luzzu

The Luzzu of Marsaxlokk

Like Venice, Malta has its own unique gondolas which have become something of a national symbol. They are called Luzzu, and are brightly colored in red, yellow, green and blue. The eye of Osiris is usually painted on the bow and is said to bring good luck. Interestingly, they are originally of Phoenician origin. They're most common in the port of Marsaxlokk, but you can find then basically anywhere on the island.
