The views from here are fantastic, and can see all around. The old buildings are great to look at and photograph.

If you need to see Valletta, then you must do it across from it. You can either take harbor tour or from Fort Angelo in traditional boats called Dghajsa. These trip cost you only 2 euro per person to 8 euro for the harbor tour.
