This old city is also known as the "Silent City". Local people still live within the walls of the Fortress and yet, you hardly see them. Certain tour companies organise night tour for this place to give people a taste of how haunting it's going...More

Mdina is a very silent City and have a very long history. their walls must tell a story. It has a very architectural building and the Cathedral is a master peace.

Visiting this place after sunset and during rain makes it really silent. Creepy silent even. I know that there are some people living there, but their cars are simply ruining the great atmosphere. You really should consider parking outside and walking these 200+m by foot.

Was here between 1 and 4 pm in winter which meant t was wondering around by myself. Narrow, cream colored streets, very clean and no cheap shops ruining the visuals of the place. Lovely views. It really was a Silent City experience!

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.
