It was about fifteen years since our last visit to Mdina. I'm afraid it is no longer "The Silent City" that it was in the past with lots of cars now in the city which slightly diminish its effect. Even so it still retains its wonderful charm with beautiful architecture to be found everywhere. The cathedral is as wonderful as... More

A remarkable city, all the buildings gorgeous clean and of stone, the small streets have charm. Not plenty to do here, an hour or two is enough but still a must. Lots of horse rides to guide you through the city, a two floor store with Malta glass products.

A fascinating and enchanting place . I would recommend a guided tour to get the full benefit of all the treasures available to explore . Choose one that gives you lots of time as each vista and old building , narrow street and bouganvillea framed dwelling is worthy of being admired . The Police Station is particularly quaint and it's... More

I would say it is the pearl of the island. A must see. Nice little alleys and buildings surrounded by a walls. You can also find a nice restaurant there.

Worth viewing as much as Malta's capital city of Valletta. In just an hour's leisure tour of Mdina, the silent city, you get to grasp the main events of Malta's rich ast history. It is truly a maze of narrow streets, alleys and roads with beautiful architecture of different periods and a vast array of religious riches and treasures. Living... More

Beautiful, old city. Lots of photo opportunities and a good range of places to eat. More horse drawn carriages than cars here.

An amazing old fortified city set high up in the centre of Malta with views to the sea. It is a very peaceful and impressively restored area with just a few cars belonging to locals and also horse drawn carriages. There are a couple of restaurants/ terraces. We had a slightly expensive iced coffee at one of these but it... More

The fortified medieval city of Mdina is a fabulous place to explore. Get lost in the narrow alleyways that wind around and don't be afraid to move away from the main tourist loop. There is a fabulous view from the high walls out over the fields and vines with numerous cathedral domes highlighting the hill tops. Palazzo Falzon is a... More
