The Institute for Tourism, Travel and Culture at the University of Malta has developed a mobile app aiming to rethink tourism amid COVID-19.

An EU funded project, the ‘Movie Traveller’ app provides an interactive experience which brings the user closer to the audio-visual, cultural heritage of these UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Launched right before the pandemic lockdown, the app takes us behind-the-scenes of six UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Europe and the Mediterranean that have helped set films and series in historical contexts as well as supporting film festivals.
