We visited this very beautiful place today and found it peaceful and restful. Within there is a striking Anzac memorial which I thought was serene. A pleasant walk from Valletta city centre

The garden was re-opened after a lengthy renovation last week. The pavement is all new and looks good as do the new fences beyond the entrance. The other, stick and rope, fences are ok. The planting however is not improved at all. In the way...More

Unfortunately for the Floriana 'garden feast 2017' the Argotti Botanical Garden was out of bounds. Lucky for me I had visited this enchanting oasi of silence so near the hustle and bustle of the capital city countless times. One of its plant and flower conservatories...More

A short walk from Valletta, nestled amongst other Floriana points of interest. Gate may be locked but just press the bell, as directed, for someone to let you in. The garden has thousands of potted plants, a huge collection of cacti and wonderful trees that...More

I visited it just before the closing time but it is nothing special. It is a small park with a fountain and palmas and that is about it. If you are in the area, take a look, why not. But I would not go there...More

I found this place by chance,when I was walking to Hastings Garden.It fact it looks like a park rather than a botanical garden.Not very big,it offers some nice views from its walls.No very impressing vegetation inside,some cactuses and a few trees with strange roots.

We visited the gardens a short while before closing time, so did not have an opportunity to explore in depth. The gardens and plants looked beautiful in the light of the setting sun.
