This is such a gorgeous place. It's well worth a day trip, drink in the ancient architecture and atmospheric street structures. The museum is small but well worth a visit. Take a camera to photograph the side streets, they are amazing!

Beguiling. An inner sanctuary, especially after the day trippers have left. You only need a day to visit but so much nicer to stay over and make it two.

Went there in Tuesday morning and spent there about an hour. The old city was beautiful, of course, but too crowded, and since the architecture is very similar to any of the oldest parts of Maltese cities I would suggest going to less popular places..

Mdina old city is a beautiful location of winding alley ways with restaurants and shops and churches. The views are magnificent from the city walls overlooking Mosta and surrounding towns.

Stunning views and beautiful palaces still occupied by descendants of the nobility, this little fortified town is definitely worth a visit. Wander the streets and admire the beautiful cathedral within the city walls.

Medina is like stepping back into a medieval town. Lots to see and take in fantastic view across Malta if you look over the walls. One of our visits we took the horse and cart, we had a very informative driver who told us lots of info about the place

What a lovely, clean walled town this was, it was a real surprise to find this on our trip. There are a few shops but they are very well kept and spotlessly clean

As a family with children aged 11 and 8, we thoroughly enjoyed wondering through this ancient city at Easter. We could honestly imagine the history of the city coming to life. It would be a great place to visit in high summer if seeking shade from the sun. I would love to visit Mdina during one of the festivals. It... More
