The old capital of Mdina, is at least worth a short walk, if you have your own transportation. You can have a drink, and enjoy the great view on the surrounding area, or marvel at its great historic buildings

This is a must if you visit Malta, the city amazing. You don't need more than a few hours but if you get chance the carriage ride is great fun , it only last 20 mins but it's well worth it

One of the must see places when visiting Malta. Mdina Gate the old city and buildings inside the walls are fabulous and with it being the highest point on Malta there are great views of the surrounding areas. You can clearly see the Rotunda in Mosta away in the distance.

To experience such peace and quiet was such a surprise. The city is maintained and kept so clean it is a 'must see'' for any visitor to Malta. There is no entrance charge and the little tea shop within the walls is also worth a visit. For those who find it difficult to walk it is generally a good flat... More

We had some extra time in Valetta so we took a bus to Mdina.......we will for sure go back. The old city is amazing. If you think Venice has narrow streets....just wait. The views of the island were fantastic. We had a lovely cup of tea and a cake at the Garden Café. We also took in the Mdina Experience.... More

I love how narrow the streets are, and how quiet the silent city actually is. There are some great restaurants as well.

You need about two hours to go around and see the old city. Many gift shops to browse with interesting items.
