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.

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, 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.

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.
