Upper Barrakka gardens overlook the waterfront and St Angelo Fort. For me , this is the best spot in Valetta for coffee, evening stroll, glass of wine or just sitting by yourself. Do plan your visit to witness the daily battery salute at 4PM

This is a beautiful place overlooking the Grand Harbour. You can sit quietly have an ice cream or just watch the ships coming and.going in the harbour. It can get busy though.

The views from these gardens are panoramic. Lots of places to sit and contemplate on life, the universe and everything.

Not as much worth it for the garden which is small but for the stunning views. Don’t pass this one, folks.

Spent a few hours in the sunshine, sitting near the fountain watching the world go by. They are clean, bright and lots of seating with a cafe and toilets available. More than happy to go again with a good book

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