Had a great day here, the town is really interesting and beautiful. Visited the game of thrones filming locations as well. Would recommend visiting as it is different from the other towns in Malta.

The first time I visited Mdina was 27 years ago, strolling through the narrow streets and along the bastions. It was quiet, it had almost magical atmosphere. Which it slowly lost over the years. Nowadays it has become quite the opposite in fact: there are...More

Mdina was very cool. We went at night, and that was very interesting, too. The lights and the walls of the old city were very intriguing. The views are spectacular.

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.
