Mdina is a beautiful town. The views from the walls are spectacular and just wandering around the streets is a photographers dream. The rich creamy colored stone and buganvilla flowers make a beautiful contrast. Also walking along the moats is also lovely.

One cannot go to Malta and not spend at least half a day at the ancient city of Mdina. Easily accessible on the public bus transportation. Charming streets, fascinating history. A stop at Fontinella’s for one of their incredible desserts is well worth it.

Mdina is immediately next to Rabat. We parked 200m from the entrance of the old city. There is also a parking at a side entrance in the citywall to the north-west of Mdina. So no problem at all.
