This place is more than what we expected. It is vast and nice. The view on the valley is not so interesting but is boundless. Inside the city you can see stunning buildings and churches. The people still live inside this city, so there are some cars parked around. You can enter for free and walk around, or you can... More

I feel in love with Mdina and I will forever remember its charm and beauty. When I picture the best place in the world, I picture Mdina. It's quaint, it's charming, it's unique, and it's small - but big enough to feel a bit lost. Definitely some magic in this city <3

Lovely walled city ...a hive of narrow cobbled strets that open up to little squares with fantastic restaurants and coffee shops. Once up near the bastion walls that fortify the city there is a 360° panorama of the island....

This was a wonderful evening arranged by cruise ship. I had seen Mdina during the day on Big Bus tour but this was special to be inside.

If Valletta is the number 1 attraction of Malta, Mdina is a close second. I am sure there is no other place like it. Adina has it all, narrow streets, no cars, everything is old but in marvellous repair and great restaurants. My regret is that we didn't stay there.

just a quick stop on our cruise but it was the best stop! when we arrived in Mdina we couldn't believe our eyes! the old church in the square had the most intricate floor marble inlays and the silver work was amazing. i will be going back !! never had time to go snorkeling ... too bad.
