Opened to the public for the very first time in 1990, tourists visiting Valletta can enjoy the pleasure of a real jewel. I am talking about Casa Rocca Piccola; we should thanks Nicholas De Piro for being the first member of Maltese aristocracy who opened his house to the public.
Nicholas wrote six books, and now he manages Casa Rocca Piccola along with his wife Frances Ding. I had the pleasure of visiting the palace during my Maltese experience and I absolutely suggest you to add a visit to this amazing place to your to-do-list. An atmosphere of love and a strong care for details embrace its visitors; Casa Rocca Piccola has over 50 rooms (almost all of them are open to the public). Over the years, more and more rooms have been opened to the public and this process is constantly evolving.
Casa Rocca Piccola has a priceless value, considering that it combines the history as well the traditions of the last 400 years of Maltese aristocracy. Visitors can admire silverware, great paintings, and antique furniture that make this tour even more precious.
Casa Rocca can be visited from 10am to 4pm from Monday to Saturday except Sundays and Public Holidays. The tour lasts approximately one hour. I highly suggest you to visit it – I am sure you will love this place!
