I suppose I've been spoiled by other fortified cities in Europe such as St. Paul DeVance and Carcassonne in France. I found this city to be barren at best and lacking in anything worth mentioning. There were tourist shops selling glass and lace items and a few restaurants. We decided to have a bite to eat at one of the restaurants that had a lovely view out over the valley but the food was overpriced and mediocre. There is not much else to do once you;ve left Mdina and you will need to get back on the bus to go to any other tourist destinations on the island. I noticed that other reviewers wrote that there is no traffic in Mdina. There certainly is and there are no sidewalks or zebra crossings for pedestrians (as is the case in most of Malta), so exercise caustion when walking with children.
