After a stroll around the silent city of Mdina a trip on the sightseeing train around Mdina, Rabat and Mtarfa was a great way to end our vday visit to the City. At 6 euro each for about a 30-min trip it is a great way to make sure that you have the opportunity to see all that you can particularly of Rabat and Mtarfa, and take some photos. It is quite bumpy, but that adds to its charm. The pick up and drop off stop is easy to find by the bus terminus. Great for families and couples alike. Definitely worth it.

Wonderful historic town , narrow lanes opening out on to the small square where the Cathedral is and all of this perched on top of a hill which means you can see all of Malta below you and you can even see as far as Sicily on a clear day

If you are in the Maltese Islands, it's a must to visit the old Capital City of Mdina. Mdina named the silent city. We have to keep in mind, that this city was used for some Games of Thrones scenes. Try to be here to see which and where the famous spots all over this magnificent Medieval City were shown during that extraordinary Tv series.

Good half hour drive round the streets & nearby area of Rabat & Mtarfa with good commentary but be aware -if you suffer from a bad back I would not recommend. The seats are hard, the roads are very uneven & it is a very bumpy journey !
