farewell dinner at Palazzo Parisio

There seems to be 2 palaces with the name Palazzo Parisio. One is in In-Naxxar in the country, the other is in Valletta near our hotel. Please tell me which one we will be visiting on our tour. Thanks.

    The history:

    http://www.palazzoparisio.com/palace-garden/our-story/company-history

    "The Parisio's owned a number of properties such as a Palazzo Parisio in Valletta, which Domenico's son Paolo loaned to Napoleon during his stay on the island. The Naxxar property became the summer residence to the Parisio's and eventually served as Paolo’s permanent residence."

    "The Grand Master used his property in Naxxar as his hunting lodge;"

    " . . . .then join us tonight for a Tauck Exclusive – a farewell reception and dinner at Palazzo Parisio; originally the hunting lodge of Grand Master . . . "


    It looks like a wonderful place for the Farewell dinner. Google maps says it is about a 20 min. drive from downtown Valleta though it could be more or less depending where the ship docks and traffic. The satellite view shows the Luna Restaurant shares the palace building which is adjacent to a very extensive garden with fountains, but it is located essentially in the middle of the town of Naxxa.
