Casa Rocca Piccola - Review
The Casa Rocca Piccola is a beautiful 16th century house that has been made open to the tourists in Valletta. This attraction is undoubtedly one of the highlights of the country of Malta. A tour across the rustic passageways and the several rooms are an insightful look into the aristocratic life of the time.
Sure to take you several years back in time, this lovely castle has been well-preserved and even better decorated by its owners. The typical construction, the lovely design and the intriguing interiors are most definitely worth noting. Privately managed, the tours have a warm and personal feel to them and the information they provide about the architecture and history of the place is invaluable. The tours come highly recommended by several past travelers.

Casa Rocca Piccola, Valletta Reviews
To see this palace/house you take a 45 min tour in a small group. The guide was fantastic and does a great job of not only sharing history of the family and home but of Malta too. The family has amassed a beautiful collection of artwork, books, and uniquely Maltese items. The owner of the home was nearby as we did the tour and frequently checked in with us. While I wouldn't say it was a must see, it's a rare opportunity to see inside a wealthy Maltese home that is still in use.
This is a must visit place in Malta! It is a privately held mini-palace/museum, but also the owners still live there which is really amazing. They have magnificent collections of art and literature and also a bomb shelter that you can see on the guided tour. Only giuded tours are offered every hour and it is totally worth it.
A must visit place in Valleta. Welcomed by the actual owner of the house with very old Maltese tradition.The guided tour was very interesting and the guide itself was a very well prepared person willing to answer every question. They even have a nice parrot that can entertain you while you are waiting for the tour to start
If you are in Malta and you would like to learn more about it's history, this museum is a must. It is still owned by the family who bought it a few hundred years ago. Our guide was fantastic, he is also the current owner of the house and still lives there. He gave it a very personal touch. Don't forget to say hi to the resident parrot. Worth every Euro.
I do not advice to visit this private museum for its expositions, but on the other hand, guide here was really good. And I should say that sometimes places are rescued by good and professional people. So, if you will have good guide and lots of time, maybe good idea to come. Otherwise you will waste your time here.
