Nice but there isnt much of it. The surrounding areas are lovely and its a nice sidebar - escape from the city.

I love the upper Barrakka Gardens, despite visiting many times we always visit when in Valletta. There is a small outdoor snack bar, situated in the gardens.

Lovely gardens with a beautiful view over Valletta harbour to the Three Cities. Able to watch the gun being fired if you arrive 10-15 mins before it is due.
