All reviews grand harbour saluting battery at noon stunning views gun salute nice garden small cafe watch the world vantage point mid day upper barrakka barrakka lift cannon firing barrakka gardens cruise liners well worth a visit visiting valletta
We visited this garden many times and it’s beautiful! We especially like the midday gun salute and were lucky enough to see he sail away. It was heartwarming to see the veterans and high commissioner chatting and laughing together. Very good visit and will visit...More
Upper Barrakka gardens overlook the waterfront and St Angelo Fort. For me , this is the best spot in Valetta for coffee, evening stroll, glass of wine or just sitting by yourself.
Do plan your visit to witness the daily battery salute at 4PM

Yes you can, but it's a winding route. Go through the short tunnel and follow round to the left to Victoria Gate. Through the gate and turn left up the steps and at the top turn right over the bridge (the Bridge Bar is worth a visit in the evening ; especially Friday evening when there is a jazz band playing during the warmer months).
The Grand Harbour Hotel should be in front of you (that's where we always stay) -- go straight up Battery Street and then up the steps, or to the other side of the hotel up the steps of Ursula Street. The gardens are in front of you.
The new lift is easier. Nearly 200 feet high with views of the harbour as you go up and it costs just 1 euro each. If you time your arrival right you will catch the noon gun being fired from the Saluting Battery just below the gardens overlooking the harbour.
