We managed to get to the Medina for a quick visit while waiting for flights on the last day of a work trip. A beautiful and well preserved place with the most stunning views. Particularly loved the Carmelite chapel.

Wandering the streets and just soaking up the atmosphere is a must! Beautiful stone buildings, fascinating architecture and doorknobs!

I have been here several times for a walk around and a coffee. There is always something to see and often they have festivals. It is quiet in the evenings but you see it in a different light.

You can spend an hour or so just wandering around the quaint streets. The architecture is amazing and if you go to the lookout steps near the Fontenella cafe there are some amazing views. There are some interesting tours you can do including the dungeons and the siege

It was very easy to get to Mdina by bus - there are no cars allowed in the city itself which helps keep the city peaceful - we wandered around the city for about an hour - after you are past the shops you get into the old city itself - amazing architecture and you can see all the old... More
