WHERE ARE WE
Casa Rocca Piccola is on Valletta’s main street and is 5 minutes walk from the Valletta Bus Terminus.
By Bus. All buses go to Valletta! Get to the Valletta Bus Terminus and just walk right down Republic Street until you get to Number 74.
By Car. Parking can be difficult in Valletta during weekdays so it’s best to park outside the city and walk in. There is a multi-storey car park by the Valletta Bus Terminus.
See the map below.
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 front door at 74 Republic Street which has a small stone step. Casa Rocca Piccola has 24 marble steps from the entrance to the Piano Nobile where the Guided Tours of the house are done. Bathrooms are not wheelchair accessible however future plans will cater for this.
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.
Properly trained guide dogs are welcome but be advised that a parrot lives on the premises!
