The silent city is the perfect place to visit, apart that it is very old city, it is very impressive to see all those beautiful houses of characters from the old times, you can also watch the beautiful views from the back of the city and the amazing walls that surrounds the city. You can even enjoy a cup of... More

Mdina city is lovely in itself, and although it was freezing today, the place is clean and well looked after, and we had a nice time. Be nice to visit later in the year; May or June perhaps.

Just for wandering around at a leisurely pace. Make sure you go in the evening as the photos can be stunning (even mine were!). Find a cafe and take a seat, you probably won't see many people but you won't mind. When you drive towards it in the evening it is lit up.

We took the tour bus to visit this old town, well worth it. Not for those with problems walking unless you have a mobility scooter or are prepared to pay for the horse and carriage tour. Absolutely gorgeous views from the ancient walls. You have to pay to visit the church and museum, I cannot comment as I didn't go... More

A historic walled city, which is fabulous to wander round. The streets are all beautifully crooked, so you can only see for as long as an arrow flies, I read somewhere! The cathedral is beautiful, and the views from the walls are pretty spectacular. I recommend the rooftop terrace, at the Fontanella tea garden for fantastic cake and an even... More

Don't leave Malta without visiting Mdina. This fortressed paradise with its yellow stone walls and buildings is superb. Horse drawn carriages trot gently through the narrow streets where small shops and cafes are juxta position with churches, museums , hotels and an impressive cathedral, all demonstrate a feeling of yesteryear. A cultural and historic delight !!

This is the crown of the Maltese Islands. Travellers, far and wide, are entranced by the beauty and mystery of this silent city. There are also some very good restaurants and from the bastions you can see almost all of Malta.

It is a very impressive place to explore but can be spoilt if you get conned into buying entry to all the money making shows put on for the tourists. Visit the place and explore then go to Rabat which is less touristified and very good value. Go to the St Pauls church and get entry to the catacombs. St... More

You must visit here it looks biblical when you peer down the narrow pale sand stone twisting streets. I would go when not too busy to give you rime to see it all. Tourist shops are quite inexpensive and have some beautiful prints for sale. I had a ride in a horse drawn carriage, not for the fainted hearted but... More
