This is a really beautiful place in Valletta with amazing views over the harbour. There are great facilities here too, lots of trees in the centre so you can sit down and enjoy the shade for a while, free toilets which are very clean, and a small cafe with ice cream and drinks. We were there on time to see... More

Hop on the new lift from the waterfront and set out directly into the gardens, he best view ever of the three cities, flowers very well kept, two minute walk into Valletta, not to be missed by any one visiting Valletta or indeed Malta

A lovely tranquil area there are quite a few benches and shade can be found. The view over to the three cities and the harbour is lovely.

We had previously visited Lower Barakka gardens and had a great time, these gardens underwhelmed us a little due to the large number of people and lack of peace and quiet.

the views from the upper barrakka gardens never disapoint. hey always seem to change with what is going on in grand harbour. Although it was a very hot day the Gardens are a relaxing way to veiw one of the most spectacular hours in the world.

The heat must bounce off the stone in Valletta because the gardens provide a welcome respite. The air feels cooler up there! Walk round the corner to the Cafe Deux Baronnes for a cold drink after - mixed reviews but a great view!

Lovely breeze, nice small cafe, some shadow.. What else does a tourist need :) There's also the cool lift to go down to the ferry of course. You should note though that the bathroom facilities close earlier than the Gardens themselves, which could be uncomfortabel should the need arise.

We spent quite a long time and a few hill climbs looking for the entrance to the Gardens but they're worth it. If you're as lost as we were, look for the place where the horse and cart rides begin and follow back from there. It's not well signed but you will eventually stumble upon it. The area of the...
