It's hard to miss the enormous Grand Palace in the center of Valletta. This is an interesting place to visit if you can avoid being near a large tour group. An audio guide comes with the entrance. My favorite part was seeing the room where...More

Can't get excited about this one I'm afraid. Very surly reception staff. Only once we were half way round state rooms did we realise there was an audio guide - not offered by reception. On our way out we could clearly see that reception team...More

Not worth the 10 euro entry fee to be honest. Just a couple of rooms and some corridors are open and there is nothing really to see in them. If you are happy to just know that you have been in the Palace then fine...More

We were expecting so much more from the Grandmasters Palace but it just doesn’t deliver value for money. The State rooms you are allowed to visit are few and the information provided scarce although they’re very attractive to see. The armoury would certainly interest anyone...More

The audio does not follow any logical sequence except in the armoury which had a great collection and is worth visiting but you need time.

I had looked forward to going round the palace. I have been around quite a number on my travels and for a non-royal palace I was hoping to see around the seat of a different kind of ruler. Only a small part can be visited....More

10€ for less than an hour tour!!!! The armoury rooms were interesting, but I guess it's for people with a real interest. The state rooms are only 5 rooms, which most you can't enter, but see through cordon. Not worth it
