We spent a lovely half hour wandering around these very pretty gardens. The weather was glorious and the views spectacular, worth a visit.

The views from here are stunning! The garden is lovely, the cannons get fired at 4pm and whilst I didn't see them I am sure it would have been great to see. It is very peaceful up here and there is a cafe next to...More

Not much to do, except to appreciate the amazing views that one can see from this place. You may also sit down, enjoy an ice cream while you appreciate what Malta offers.

This is a well laid out garden with toilets,refreshments and a magnificent view of the Grand Harbour. From here you overlook the three cities, moored ships and any passing sea traffic. In addition you overlook the ceremonial canons which are fired at 1.00pm & 4.0pm...More

Wonderful views from this high point. Gorgeous architecture, wonderful sculptures, lovely cool fountain and fun cats, but not much in the way of horticulture. A few trees which will be pleasant in summer and maybe the geraniums will grow to cover the irrigation system, but...More

Go there for two main reasons the amazing view over the harbour and the cannon at noon. The latter is quite ceremonial and perhaps a tad overplayed but still worth watching. It is quite loud though and my youngest (4 years ild) was a bit...More

Yes you can, but it's a winding route. Go through the short tunnel and follow round to the left to Victoria Gate. Through the gate and turn left up the steps and at the top turn right over the bridge (the Bridge Bar is worth... More
