A must visit in Malta, just explore the streets and take photos. So enjoyable just to wander around. Great view from the back wall as well :)

“The silent city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

It is an old city being the capital city before 1500's but today it is still a silent city where the one can admire it's ancient buildings, attractions and views. It is a must for tourists visiting the Maltese Islands to visit this exceptional city in the centre of Malta.

Mdina is called the silent city...and silent it was. Beautiful architecture, narrow streets, great views.

“A fantastic historic atmosphere and great views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

An interesting sight, architectural, historical, cultural and (just plain) experience wise. There is much to see in this very relaxing city depending on interest, as well as the great views you can get of the island from the walls. Not to mention the velcoming chill factor the narrow streets provide, which makes it possible to walk around during the day feeling comfortable and relaxed.

“It's called the Silent City for a reason”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I wish we could have spent a full afternoon here. It's so quiet and peaceful, just walking around the narrow streets and alleys, reveling in the medieval architecture, painted doors, stone carvings, and a real sense of history. While there were tourists here, we never saw that many of them anywhere we went except at the cathedral. There are also some lovely shops and restaurants to linger in. The view from the top of the walls allows you to see for miles.
