  • Opposed to the upper garden for being a more at the level of the water, this area also has your charm.

  • A public garden in a very quiet part of Valletta. Amazing views from this garden. A good place to relax.
  • Quiet place to sit down in the shade of trees and olive trees and enjoy the view over the three cities.
  • Beautiful garden ( finaly something green ) with views at port and Grand Harbour.
  • A hidden oasis in the bustling city. Like uper barrakka, this place has stunning views however the garden feels tropical and is much more lush and green. The monuments and statutes are lovey and it makes for a great photo spot or a place to relax!
  • What a nice and sweet corner! Benches look at the harbour, and all around stands out a considerable sea-scape. It takes very little to love this place.

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.
