An elegant noble house in Mdina. The audio guide is great and we wandered at our own pace. Very peaceful after the bustle outside. Very enjoyable.

Unfortunately Palazzo Falson is the exception to the overwhelming friendliness and beauty of Malta and its people. Yes it's a great and fascinating glimpse of a grand historic residence with very good audio guide. But to be followed closely from room to room, both us...More

This unique museum is located down the narrow Villegaignon Street in Mdina. This 2nd oldest building of Mdina was supposedly made in 1495 around an older 13th century structure. It houses in its 17 rooms ancient collections of a rich Maltese family and domestic belongings....More
