Going to the Barrakka Gardens you will have a nice walk and see some beautiful view. The most beautiful part is the Upper part of the Gardens.

The gardens are beutiful with extensive views over the fortresses and grand harbour of Valletta,at noon each day they prepare and fire one of the historical cannons, boy is it loud! You can hear the bang all over Valletta and watch the ceremony at the same time. Fascinating!

This is a lovely little spot to enjoy the views over the harbour. If you time it right (12pm) you can see the 'saluting of the battery' too.
