As part of Floriana's Ġenna ta' Ġonna event, October 9th will see Malta's only underground railway station opened to the public once more. This annual event, in collaboration with The Malta Railway Foundation will allow visitors to explore the underground tunnels with a guided tour by Paul Galea.

Hosted for its sixth time, this tour will give an interesting insight into a location that is locked away for most of the year, and is a perfect outing for history lovers and Instagram aficionados alike. Oh, and did we mention it's completely free of charge?

Throughout the day various other gardens and museums will also be open to the public, with many having guides to explain the cultural significance of the area, and give visitors a tour of some of the hidden secrets Floriana has to offer.

The town, which boasts the largest number of public gardens on the island, will be pulling out all the stops and showing off their more treasured possessions, which vary from secret gardens hidden in the bastions, to the mummified bodies of the priests buried below the Cappucin convent.
