We caught a bus from Valletta (no.51) and it was an easy journey to Mdina. I would love to go back and stay in the city for a night because it is very atmospheric. We had a delicious lunch at AD 1530 Trattoria. Because we went on a Sunday, the city was relatively quiet which we enjoyed. We managed to peek inside the church before a wedding and the museum and grotto of St Paul were closed, although we had read that they would be open on a Sunday.

No private or tourist vehicles are allowed inside the walled city of Mdina. You park outside and walk towards the magnificent Mdina Gate, known by locals as the French Gate. The road surface is of very flat flagstones. Through the archway in the gate, you get your first view of the splendid interior, with all the buildings of the same yellow-white colour seen throughout Malta. A very enjoyable hour or so awaits you!

Walk from the bus terminus, through a garden and discover this photogenic gate. Look down ,where they have created some pleasing gardens in what ,I presume ,was once a moat and the bridge was maybe once a drawbridge.
Walk though the gate and feel like walking back in time.

We were a group of travellers from Canada, and visited the beautiful old city of Mdina on our trip to Malta. Walking through the main gateway is a wonderful introduction to Mdina. Visit the narrow cobbled streets, and soak in the atmosphere of ancient Malta. So much culture to absorb-you will discover the history of the Knights of St John and their contribution to the development of Malta.

We stayed in Mdina, Malta at the beautiful Casa del Tesoriere. The quarantine stopped us and our group after two days but we still loved the country and the Silent City.

I can send a blog to anyone who is interested.

This entrance gate used to be the only way to enter Mdina.
Even until today, we still can see the grandness of this ancient city from this gate.
However be careful here because it is quite small and if there is car then the space for pedestrians will be much smaller.

Spectacular place, pretty narrow streets of the former Capital city. So many photo opportunities, streets, views, balconies. The baroque architecture is beautiful here. Really enjoyed my visit.

Alway travel to Mdina when in Malta. Buy some beautiful Mdina glass to bring home. Walk the narrow streets. Visit the museum and the beautiful church. Walk to the end and look at the beautiful scenery below the fortress walls.

It's the main entrance of the old city. I don't know why it has its own page here in Trip Advisor.
You pass through this when you enter Mdina. I didn.t notice something extraordinary when i was there.
Another good looking castle-city's entrance.

Not a lot of people around due to COVID so was able to take pictures with ease. Picturesque location with Baroque gate and bridge over the former moat which has now been turned into gardens.
