We were on a cruise ship docked for the day.We walked along and went up the lift which was about 2 euro returnand went up to street level .We booked to see the firing of the cannon and this included a free trip out to...More
The best way to experience it is to get one of the small boats across the harbour for a few euros. We also went to a restaurant near the cruise ship terminal which provided good food but not much atmosphere.
One of my favourite places on Earth I would move here in a heartbeat. Malta is just one of those places I could holiday in every time, friendly locals lovely restaurants and the most spectacular atmosphere.
What I think is the Valletta Waterfront is the touristy cafe and shopping area that is right across from where the cruise ships dock. As other have said, there are just pricey restaurants and so-so gift shops. At least there is a tourist information booth...More
The stretch that is considered "Valletta waterfront" is a hoax. It consists of restaurants offering overpriced food and drinks due to the fact they are next to the water... which doesn't provide any good views of the harbor.
When we walked alongside it, not only...More
Walking around this area I enjoyed a number of bars and restaurants for a quick coffee and snack and menus for lunch and dinner in most places offered what you expected. Good atmosphere too - clean and tidy. Plus a place to arrange the hop...More

Hi, It really depends on where you go. To get to the Grand Harbour you can get the lift down from the gardens area of the main town but you will need to negotiate some short hills to get there. At the bottom, the streets are fairly flat so you can move around and have a good look at the boats and across the harbour. On the other side of the town it is downhill from the town to the waterfront area with cobbled streets and narrow pavements which would be difficult to negotiate in a wheelchair

Cruise ships dock at the foot of Valletta. It is a steep climb, or walk to the elevator. Visit the. Upper Barrakka gardens for sweeping views of harbour and three cities. Visit St Johns Co Ca5edral, exquisite, and see the Caravaggio. The city hosts many treasures, including Casa Rocco Piccola, a 16th century palace. Dine in Rampila. High up on the ramparts.
Should also visit MDINA, the walled city, so beautiful, eat a pizza at Fontanella, again, high on the ramparts overlooking land and sea, set in the middle of Malta.
In October, if the sea is rough you may not be able to do Blue Grotto. There are much nicer things to do, so don’t worry.
