Mdina the silent city, is just that. It is like walking into another time. It has such an air calm and serenity, it is hard to explain the magic of the city. The view from the walls of Mdina over Malta is breath taking.

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.
