“Spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

I am an architect so seeing old houses still in there mint historic condition is well wort it every time. In Venice there are a lot of houses like this, so I always go in. You get a free audio guide, there is a gift shop, lockers, toilet. The house is gorgeus, a lot to see, all the roms are accessible, beautifuly presented, with all neccesary descriptions on aoudio guide.

“Interesting with good cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

Lots of interesting things to see in the house which is a lovely example of Maltese domestic architecture with a very pretty courtyard. It is worth visiting for the cafe too, which is not crowded and where you can sit either outside with great roof top views, or inside in air conditioning.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

A very nice house and a great audio guide which is included in the entrance fee. The only negative is the price, 10 euros is a bit steep. There is a nice café at the top, with good prices and a nice view. Well worth a visit!

“Palazzo Falson is a great thing to do in Mdina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Palazzo Falson, a former private home, filled with antiques, paintings, and decorative arts in Mdina, is a nice visit. The audio tour is particularly good, and there is a lovely rooftop café with terrific views of Mdina's old city and the surrounding countryside. the Museum Shop is nice as well--not kitschy at all.
