In 2012 a new elevator opened up, linking the Grand Harbor to the Upper Barrakka Gardens and Valletta city center. When you exit the port, simply take a right, walk down the street until you see the elevator on your left hand side. Get a ticket for the way up for 1 euro at the machine, down is free. It will save you a 58 meter climb up the road to the higher city center. The lift is wheelchair accessible.
