“Amazing views”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Make time to walk up and around the walls, as long as weather ok, or could be slippery in the wet. Used local bus on day fare from ferry, rather than very pushy taxi drivers.

“Take your time”
Reviewed 26 June 2014 via mobile

A cool place with lots to see and great views. Take your time to see the war time shelters, cannons and picturesque views from the walls.

There was construction work in progress there, but still a nice place to visit.

“Citadel”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Visited the citadel for a long afternoon. Although there was some construction work being done on the cathedral, we were still able to walk all around the walls. Amazing views all around as well as some little shops and a lovely cafe where we stopped for a drink. The highlight for me was a grain silos which you can visit underneath some of the walls. These have a cool echoey effect which is good fun.

“Wonderful view”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

We made a short visit to the Citadel during the minibus trip that was part of Hornblower's cruise to Gozo from Malta. It's a short climb up from the main street and up some steps in the Citadel itself, and we were rewarded with panoramic views of almost the whole of Gozo.

“Your satisfaction depends on your expectations”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

We came here on a day trip from Valletta. Toured the Cathedral (the fee covers 3 museums) and climbed up to the top to take in the views of the city. We'd packed a picnic and ate our lunches atop the Citadel while enjoying a panoramic view. Several restaurants and shops but not much else to do here. We were happy.
