"Floriana" Malta Things to Do Tip by pure1942

Malta Things to Do: 753 reviews and 1,109 photos


Floriana extends from Valetta main gate to the west and is mainly a residential, business and administrative district but does have a splattering of interesting sights, with the Church of St. Publius, War Memorial, Sarria Chapel all scattered between the well laid out gardens stemming from the bus terminus. Floriana is also the location of the Malta botanical gardens to the south of the city. Reaching the outer floriana fortified walls you will pass through a stone gate, Porte des Bombes, dating from 1697 which marks the entrance/exit to Floriana. One of Malta?s newer and modern developments is located in Floriana. The Pinto Wharf is built on the eastern side of Floriana on the Grand Harbour side and has revamped the former, rather run-down dockside area, into a fashionable district of bars, restaurants, cafes and residential apartmerts.
