    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 »

    Going down from Upper Barrakka Gardens is free but going upwards is at a 1 Euro fee. The bottom takes you to the street along the coast of the harbour. Hint, if you're there just for the ride you can go straight back up once you reach the bottom. Stairs are also available.

    It is interesting to notice that the lift is free down, but 1 euro upway.

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.
