Definitely worth visiting! We're planning to visit beautiful Valletta again soon, but not in a summer though, it was way too hot 🔥

Beautifully kept gardens with a fantastic view across the Grand Harbour and the Three Cities. There are cafe facilities and seating for you to sit and enjoy the sights.

the best view in Valetta. Small cafe in the gardens, lift to harbour side. Added plus of midday gun salute.

Worth going to see the gun ceremony at either noon or 4.00pm. Get there ten minutes early to get a good view.
