The ticket (15€) is too expensive, just to see 4 rooms and gardens. The gardens are good but is a bit expensive.

The Palazzo Parisio is located in the city of Naxxar, directly opposite of the main church of Naxxar. From the outside you would say it is a normal building and town house in the Maltese style. But just after entering through the huge glass front door you will see that this is really a unique and special place. Decorated with... More

Lovely gardens to visit and a very ornate and beautiful house. It's on a roundabout so you have to park a short distance away. Bit pricey though.

Our first visit, although we visit Malta very regularly, and we were not disappointed. A truly beautiful Palazzo with such a steep and important history. We were guided by Nicholas, who was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Do try and be guided as Nicholas pointed out so much in each room that we would never have either seen or understood. He... More

A very small palazzo that has a nice decoration but no special gardens. For what it offers, it is way too expensive. The adult ticket costs 15 euros. Definitely much better choices available.

We stumbled upon this hidden gem in the busy centre of the town, five years ago when we first came to Malta. We were just as impressed second time around. If you are looking for a tranquil, historic retreat for afternoon tea, cocktails or a meal, set in lovely gardens, this is one not to miss! Good service with a... More

A fine building stuff full of history and great furniture. The well laid out gardens also make for a interesting walk. This palace makes a welcome change from the standard architecture of Malta. Visit as part of the Malta pass so as to avoid any entrance fees. We didn't take any refreshments here but if I saw there is rather... More

One of the most beautiful places to sit in the sun and enjoy a meal in Malta. Unfortunately, of late the service is very poor and the food only decent while the prices are high. They used to have great food and excellent service however the prices have gone up and the former gone down. I used to go there... More

A rip-off. €5 each to see what is currently a building site & limited access to what should be a 1/2 mile stretch. of garden. I would have asked for my €10 back but my wife was too embarrassed to cause any upset. Not recommended.
