Very nice to take a walk down the streets and see the architecture. Streets are very narrow and very interesting to see how cars get in and out from their garages. Streets are cobbled and there are many picturesque sites.

Beautiful medieval city, with a totally different vibe from Valletta. Quite small, but has a lot of cute cafes at which to eat lunch. Also, as great views of the island from the city walls.

Not as “Silent” as it once was, with many visitors, horse drawn carriages and quite a few cars these days, but still a magical place to visit. Once the capital city of Malta, Mdina is a lovely place to wander. Enjoy the shady streets on...More

The day we chose to visit the old town started off quite cloudy. Because of its location on the hill, any wind permeates and rushes through the old town streets. We loved the old architecture and the feeling you get walking through time. The city...More

You can't miss this beautiful little city om yourntrip to Malta. Architechturally so different from the other cities we went to, with a tranquil atmosphere and amazing views. You'll want to take enough time to wander around the tiny streets, and stop for tea.

You mostly walk around in tiny streeta surrouded with high limestone walls. Wrth to see the church but it us very similar to other churches on the island. Good view on the whole island. Mdina is much more nicely looking from above. And the cars...More

From the imposing sight of this ancient hilltop city when approaching by road, to the mazy narrow streets and its architecture - a visitor cannot fail to be impressed. Such a lovely tranquil feel walking around, helped by the slightly pinkish hue of the local...More

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.
