Simply amazing views of the Grand Harbour from what is one of the quietest,mc almost parts of this fantastic old port city. The Upper Barrakka is tree-lined and has thought-provoking memorials and is close the World-War 2 museums, etc as well. However, it is worth visiting on its own merits, perhaps towards the end of the day to see the... More

The garden is not fantastic itself but it's really refreshing to find a green place in the capital! The view is really nice. I advice it by night also!

Walked from the cruise port to take the lift here. Beautiful restful gardens with spectacular views (and wifi, essential for teens!). A great starting point for walking round the stunning town. We were lucky enough to be there just before a festival so all the streets were decorated with plaster saints and flags.

This is a must if you are visiting Valletta. There are eight cannons lined up, two are loaded and one is fired. There are great views over the harbour and a nice little café to have a cool drink. Well worth a visit

Very well located, impossible to miss... It is better to get there before 12 PM in order to see the gun salutes which are fired each day. The Upper Barrakka Gardens offers an amazing view over Valletta. We opted to enter to the museum too, which is downstairs and enabled us to be closer to the action and to make... More
