“Upper Barrakka Gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

A fantistic view of the Grand Harbour and an opportunity to soak in the wonderful forts of St Elmo & St Angelo and the gardens. A photographers delight as is most of Malta

“Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

Great views, look out for the lift that is very useful if you go to the Valleta Waterfront. Very busy in the summer but very central too, links you to the tourist spots.

“A quiet haven that comes to life twice a day”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

The setting is well designed and tended, the views across the harbour are magnificent, there is plenty of well positioned seating and the spectacular twice daily cannon salutes are a memorable experience. One of many aspects that makes Valletta special.

“What a view... Spectacular”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

If you go to Malta, you have to visit the Upper Barrakka gardens. There is not much of a garden but the view is spectacular and you get a great view of the "Three Cities" which formed the capital of Malta before the Knights of St John built Valletta. There is ahandy food kiosk which we frequented several times so we could bask in the sunshine, having a relaxing drink and absorbing the view.
