I've been before but had to show my wife. We visited the Neolithic ruins on the southern bus tour and then went to the catacombs before a stroll around the old city. Next time will stop longer for something to drink and eat.

I have been to Malta four times in the past two years and I love revisiting this old capital city of Malta. It's is so peaceful walking through its winding narrow streets, relax over a cuppa or a meal in any of its eating establishments. Or delve into its history by visiting it's lovely churches or museums. The views over... More

We wandered around this city at dusk during early December. It was not very well-lit and full of empty alleyways. Saying that, there were always piazzas or openings dotted around (with cars parked in them) and it was impressive to step through the huge fortress walls separating the old city from the outside world. Daylight would probably be better to... More

The old capital of Malta, Mdina takes you back in time with its narrow streets behind formidable walls. Stroll around the silent city and imagine both its majesty and history, dominating the surrounding area and commanding great views of the island. Whilst it is a mainstay of organised tours and a stop on the hop on hop off buses you... More

A magical city. Whenever you go you feel a special vibe embraced in History. Whether during the day or at night, it's always fun to get lost in its narrow roads - feeling mysterious. Plenty of places to learn about and other places where one can stop for a drink, snack and even lunch or dinner and still with good... More

The old capital of Malta Mdina the walled city is a must to visit. Steeped in history the views are outstanding. There is a tourist information office where you can get a map of the city plenty of places to eat and lots of little shops. We traveled on the bus from Buggiba on No 186

This walls, houses and other buildings were constructed long ago. When the capital was moved from there (around 16th century) these buildings stood still and remain so in time. As soon as you enter the old city you feel the old narrow paths, the horses moving around and the knights make their way. You feel the air of another proud... More

It is a must just to walk the streets and maybe have lunch in Mdina. We felt really happy and relaxed after a day here and at the Catacombs
