We take a taxy and have a nice walk in Medina. To travel around the narrow ancient streets and wall it take an hour. Nice to visit also the church and there are impressive views.

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.
