  • came upon this accidentally as hot off the water taxi from the 3 cities visit and was following other customers who seemed to know where they were going and the glass lift was waiting and the bonus is...  more »
  • Very convenient means of transportation if you need to drop down to the port or Marina travel by sea

  • A 1 Euro ride to top of cliff and 'old' town Valetta/Upper Barrakka Gardens (coming down is free). Way easier/faster than trying to walk.

  • It is interesting to notice that the lift is free down, but 1 euro upway.
  • Not good for those with vertigo! The lift is free to travel down from the upper gardens, so if you go down, go straight back up! There is a fee to travel upwards from the harbour. This relatively new extension feels quite out of place with its ancient surroundings.
  • free down,but you have to pay upway. But worth it
  • Worth paying 1€ to save your legs from 300 steps. It could be free though.
  • Great way to get from down at the bottom to up top.
