These gardens are quite small and in February they are obviously not at their best. There is a nice panoramic view from here.

I can imagine at the height of summer when all the plants are in bloom that it will be really lovely but even so it was very pretty and interesting to look over the city.

Great view. I recommend taking binoculars or telephoto lens - lots of thing to watch. Quite a lot banks to sit and relax. Could be windy, but is't just like the rest of the Malta :)

We visited the gardens at 12 to enjoy the show, only one canon fired, it was good but we expected a better show. The view to three cities is great.

The place is super. You can relax in a quiet place, yet in the city centre. You can have coffee relaxing in a pleasant environment. There is a lovely view of the three cities and the Maltese harbour. You can also go down the lift...More

The view is amazing and it is the perfect place to relax in Valletta. You don’t need a lot of time to explore the area and the visit is well worth it.

Modest but nice gardens overlooking the water and a nice stop to change it up from all of the limestone and take in some nice features and views across Grand Harbour. You probably won't spend a ton of time here, but it's worth walking through.

This is s small garden area but with some of the best views of the harbor and city. Especially striking at sunset or early evening. It is free to enter and has a small snack bar area. A visit to the garden is a must...More

Although the gardens them selves are pleasant enough the view of the harbour is breathtaking would recommend you take your camera

Fantastic viewpoint over the Grand Harbour. Didn't know that so many locations had been used in movies.

It is at the opposite side of Valetta which involves walking uphill and steps or you can walk around the perimeter wall of Valletta
