The guide was very knowledgeable and there were so many artifacts to see and admire, including some very personal possessions. The underground bunkers are well worth a visit

See what life was like for a noble family who have lived in this palace for three hundred years. Fine restaurant located in the former basement kitchen.

Away from the bustling city centre, Casa Rocca Piccola provides an fascinating glimpse into Malta’s proud history. Our wonderful guide Patricia escorted us around this fantastic house and home. If you like history, you will not be disappointed.

What a fascinating experience! So interesting to see how the Maltese nobility lived in Valletta. The guide was good and even the Marquis himself made and appearance along with the parrot!

The ticket price is 10 euros ( guided tour ). It is a really nice hause, with much of history. You should pay a visit.
