After admiring the sweeping views from Upper Barrakka park in Valletta, we decided to make our way over to the Three Cities for a closer look. A huge elevator leads from the park to sea level but we opted for the stairs instead. Beware...it's a long way down!
Perfect timing! We arrived at the dock just as a ferry was set to depart for the Three Cities. For less than a fiver, we were whisked away on a 15 minutes ride across the bay.
The views were even more stunning up close.
We also spotted about a half-dozen additional and equally impressive boats moored nearby.VisitMalta.com.
