564 Reviews

These romantic, landscaped gardens have recently been revamped and sit prettily on the edge of Valletta’s ramparts. They offer wonderful birds-eye views east to the entrance to the Grand Harbor and south to Fort St Angelo and the Three Cities of Vittorioso, Senglea and Cospicua and their more famous counterparts, the Upper Barrakka Gardens, are a few minutes’ stroll away on the south-west point of the ramparts. Among the flowers, splashing fountains and palm trees providing solace and shade in the gardens is a Neo-classical monument to Sir Alexander Ball, the first British Governor of Malta, who was appointed in 1813. A number of commemorative plaques mark the walkways, celebrating – among others – the 50th anniversary of the European Union in 2007 and the Prague Spring of 1968.

Accessible from Barriera Wharf along the seafront, the limestone colonnades of the Siege Bell Memorial stand just below Lower Barrakka Gardens. The 10-ton bronze bell commemorates the 7,000 people who died in the two-year Siege of Malta, which ended in 1942, and it was inaugurated by Queen Elizabeth II in 1992 to mark the 50th anniversary of the siege. Her father King George V awarded the entire Maltese nation the George Cross – the UK’s highest military accolade – in honor of their bravery during the war.

This extremely fun e-scooter tour gives visitors an introduction to Malta’s most popular coastal towns, with a cruise around the promenade that is characteristic of Sliema and St. Julian’s. Feel like one of the ‘in’ crowd as you pass by the towns’ most widely frequented beach clubs. Then just before you catch your first ferry of the day to the island’s capital, take in views of its stunning fortifications at Tigné Point. This will present the first of many wonderful spots to take photos. Once in Valletta, you can admire the imposing entrance, with the Triton Fountain and the particular design of the Parliament House. This is followed by a cruise through Valletta’s most charming streets, stopping off at various places of interest, such as the Siege bell war memorial and the Lower and Upper Barakka Gardens. The last part of the tour features a second ferry ride to the gorgeously unspoilt Three Cities, starting off with a cruise around the marinas and Fort. St. Angelo.

The Capital City of Malta Tour (Valletta) Including the Malta Experience & Lunch

Valletta is Malta's lilliputian capital, built by the Knights of St John on a peninsula. Its founder decreed that it should be 'a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen', and it retains its 16th-century elegance. It may be small, but it's packed full of sights; when Unesco named Valletta a World Heritage site, it described it as 'one of the most concentrated historic areas in the world'. This tour includes all the main attractions in Valletta with all the admission tickets included. Included in this tour is also a licensed tourist guide which will guide you through the city explaining all the history and culture behind the attractions.
