“Very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.

“A really interesting place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

This place was really unexpected - from the outside you never imagine the little gem inside. The first courtyard is beautiful & something im sure everyone would like at home. The self guided audio tour was really good & allowed you to move at your own pace through the different rooms. The random collections by the previous owner do mean there is something new in every room - & lots of things you wont see anywhere else. The little rooftop café is also well worth a visit.

“Charming and interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Passing the lovely courtyard with bourgainvillea and a fountain, I visited the Palazzo Falson on impulse, and it was one of the best sights I saw in Mdina. A series of small, intimate, yet grand rooms, packed with interesting treasures, a proper family home, with a friendly and helpful staff. It is charming,. quirky, cool and a refuge from the passing hordes. Don't miss it
