Not only is this a great viewpoint in Valletta of the 3 cities, but it's also a really peaceful setting to just hang out for a while, with it's beautiful arches, shady benches, garden setting, with trees and a cafe for light fare. This is...More

A short walk from Valletta centre, good place to take some panoramic photos. Suggest to visit place late afternoon when the waterfront is bathed in sunset light. There is a small fee if you would like to use elevator but stairs are free of charge...More

Breathtaking view whatever time of day you visit and whatever time of the year for. Overlooks the three cities and right across from the natural port, The grand harbour. A nice place for a stroll, beautifully kept with flowers all year round

When you see the garden it feels like it doesn't belong there. It is so green, so fresh, nice scent coming from the beautiful flowers across the gardens... You will also enjoy a stunning view towards the Grand Harbour.

Lovely views across the Grand Harbour, surrounded by beds of geraniums. Plenty of shade. A good spot for a little relaxation between site seeing in Valletta. The gardens however are not big.

Nice place, flowers everywhere, nice smells... A small oasis in the centre of Valletta. The view is amazing. You can see all other cities. You can see Mediterranean Sea and also Sicilia if the weather is good.

It is at the opposite side of Valetta which involves walking uphill and steps or you can walk around the perimeter wall of Valletta
