Head to the Upper Barrakka Gardens for sweeping panoramic views of the Grand Harbour. From this vantage point you can also spot the old towns of Senglea and Vittoriosa, and the shipyards below. You'll encounter the Saluting Battery, where daily cannon salutes are performed at noon, as well as beautiful fountains, plenty of manicured green space for a picnic, and benches to rest your feet over coffee from the resident cafe. An elevator connects the gardens to the Valetta waterfront, should you want to get closer to the action. Note: Free Wi-Fi can be found here.
