“Charming old city...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

The walled city is a must for anyone visting Malta.

Mdina is very easy to get to and once you arrive, walking through the gate all you see its amazing architecture. Such a lovely place.

Highly recommend a visit to the restaurants, lovely cakes on offer.

“Breathtaking Architecture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

How did they do it? One of the most outstanding pieces of architecture I have seen. The walled city rises out of the mountain and dominates the landscape. When inside the city walls it was wonderful to see just how well preserved the whole city is.

“Old City Mdina”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

Wonderful experience. Walk the streets of the Malta Knights while taking in the ambiance of Old Malta. The streets and stalls are a wonder to see and it is worth of the visit.

“the silent city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

Read the history before going. Check out the door knockers and the keyholes. The nobles who ran Malta pre the knights, locked themselves in here and would take no part in the siege. See the cathedral. See the size of the internal houses and walled gardens.
