Casa Rocca Piccola is situated on the main street of Valletta about 600 metres from the Bus Terminus. The pavement immediately outside the property has a gradient with gentle 5cm steps but since the road is quiet it is also possible to push wheelchairs on the tarmac road. Taxis can stop outside but finding parking spaces during the day in Valletta can be difficult and may require parking a considerable distance away.
The access to Casa Rocca Piccola is through the Casa Rocca Shop which is down 5 stone steps. Casa Rocca Piccola has 24 marble steps from the shop level/entrance to the Piano Nobile where the Guided Tours of the house are done.
Once you are at this level there are no further steps and access into individual rooms is through double doors. If you require wheel chairs to be lifted to this level please telephone or email ahead and we may be able to arrange help with lifting and provide easier access. Chairs are not provided but exceptions can be made in individual cases for those who will find standing for the 45 minute duration of the tours tiring. (Please contact us before arriving.) The exhibits are all visible for wheelchair users.
The Bomb Shelters of Casa Rocca Piccola have around 100 stone steps, some narrow tunnels and in parts uneven surfaces and so are not recommended for wheelchair users or those with mobility or vision issues. Handrails are provided on the Bomb Shelter steps but again caution is advised.
The access to the restaurant Bocconci is either down 5 stone steps or over one stone step depending on which of the two outside entrances are used. The restaurant has a bathroom with disabled access and handrails.
Guided tours of Casa Rocca Piccola are usually done in clear spoken English (unless booked in advance) with laminated normal-sized script translations available in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, and Hungarian.
Properly trained guide dogs are welcome but be advised that a cat lives on the premises!
