Valletta boasts beautiful gardens with spectacular views. The most popular ones are the Upper Barrakka Gardens, which offer panoramic views of the Grand Harbour and the Three Cities, while hosting notable historical mementos and bronze sculptures.

The Lower Barrakka Gardens, on the other hand, provide breathtaking views of the mouth of the Grand Harbour and the Break Water, while from Hastings Gardens one can take in the wide expanse of the Marsamxetto Harbour and the surrounding towns.

For nature lovers who cannot get enough of gardens, a short walk outside Valletta to neighbouring Floriana is a worthwhile trip. Some of the main attractions include Herbert Ganado Gardens and the Argotti Botanical Gardens.
