“A place to escape to”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

On a hot day this is a wonderful place to sit in the shade around the fountain, look at the magnificent views of the Grand Harbour and the Three Cities opposite and have a a drink or a bite to eat at the kiosk. And there are toilets!! At midday you can watch, and hear, the cannons on the Saluting Battery below. If you want to go to the water's edge take the lift - free descending, 2euro ascending, if you don't want to walk up the hill.

“Peaceful, pretty and great views”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Worth the walk with a café down the side close to the entrance for battery area (cannons). Worth continuing the walk around outer walls of Valletta to see other views of harbour etc.

“Must See”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

Lovely gardens with a fantastic view. Very close to the bus station so easy to get to.Time it right to see the gun salute. The soldiers are very willing to be photographed either by themselves or with visitors
