Incredible walled city with winding streets and beautiful old houses and squares. Entrance is through the city gates which have stood for centuries with fortified walls and dry moat. There is a tourist walk around the streets and battlements but as it is so small you can just please yourself and walk down the roads that have had footfall from... More

Another of Malta's gems. A place to fill a day in quiet complementation, so much to see and take in. Excellent cafe located within the walls with a view over the island also worth a visit. Too much to write about on here go and see it for yourself.

Stopped here and walked around, as part of a full day on the North/Blue Sightseeing bus. Very enjoyable.

We didn't plan to visit this place, we missed our stop for a different church, but we were so glad that we did go, it was an afternoon well spend. We really enjoyed it and would say that it is a MUST!

If you make it all the way to Malta and don't come to see the old city of Mdina then you really should forfeit all future travel rights. This place is simply awesome. The craftsmanship and work that went into not only building but rebuild it over the years and even today is a tremendous feat. The history this place... More
