This was one of the first places we visited, having been dropped off by a horse taxi. We took the lift up from the waterfront. You pay 1 euro to go up, to go down is free.
From here there are fantastic views over the...More
You can access this from the bus terminal on foot or
as we did on occasion from the lower level after a ferry from Vittoriosa,via the lift(over 60`s/seniors have reduced ferry fayres and with the ferry crossing the lift is free).Cafe is good for snacks...More
Garden is nice to sit and walk round. Pleasant garden with fountain and a great view of the three cities. You can also see the cannon being fired at 12.00 & 16.00. You can see this for free from the garden or you can pay...More
Very nice spot for looking over out to sea but extremly packed so we didn't linger. It was a Sunday so possibly this explained why. Would suggest going early in the morning to avoid the crowds we unfortunately we didn't do.
This is a must to visit especially at the times the gun salute is fired from the Saluting Battery. We visited Valletta as part of of our cruise itinerary and it didn’t let us down. We left the harbour and visited the gardens via the...More
Beautiful views but a simple garden. Nothing fancy. The view is the attraction. Our visit was made more enjoyable by a street musician playing classical guitar music. There is a Cafe in the garden and that was a good place to have a cold drink,...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 a visit in the evening ; especially Friday evening when there is a jazz band playing during the warmer months).
The Grand Harbour Hotel should be in front of you (that's where we always stay) -- go straight up Battery Street and then up the steps, or to the other side of the hotel up the steps of Ursula Street. The gardens are in front of you.
The new lift is easier. Nearly 200 feet high with views of the harbour as you go up and it costs just 1 euro each. If you time your arrival right you will catch the noon gun being fired from the Saluting Battery just below the gardens overlooking the harbour.
