  • We had walked around the harbour area and it was great to use the lift to go up to city level. Well worth the euro cost  more »
  • A great way to reach the City from the Waterfront - and vice versa. In the summer heat it's definitely a welcome alternative to taking the stairs or walking the long way round. Waterfront - Barrakka G...  more »
  • Don't panic although it is 1 euro each to go up kids are free so it is not xpensive for families. It is free to go down. The lift takes you from the city to the waterfront area. We used it a few times...  more »

  • Newly built EU-funded project. Modern, fast. Takes you from Valletta down to the seafront. Going down is free, going up costs 1 Eur (or take stairs for free, which is a fun exercise).
  • Easy to use,fast and cheap. You can go downstairs for free and up for the cost of 1€. For some reason nothing worked that day I guess so I got to travel both up and down for free
  • Get your camera out but be quick
  • Fast and free from Upper Barrakka Gardens to sea side level with ferry boats and hop on, hop off buses.
  • You have to pay for going up. Going down is free. The view is breathtaking.

Where to stay in Valletta

The small city of Valetta offers fewer lodging options than some of Malta's larger cities, but accommodations include everything from upscale hotels to less-expensive guesthouses. Stay in the city center at one of several old-fashioned hotels to be in close proximity to sights like St. Johns Co-Cathedral, the Presidential Palace, multiple museums, and a wide variety of restaurants. One fun option involves renting traditional Valletta houses that have been converted into rental properties and date back to the time of the Knights of Malta. Smaller bed and breakfasts are dispersed throughout the city. Book well in advance to avoid high prices.
