Mdina is really worth to visit and if you have time on your journey in Malta take a half day trip to Mdina. It’s old medieval city very well preserved and not so crowded like places on the beach side of island

Parking a bit limited just keep looking around .we had a horse and carriage ride bit pricey but informative then had a walk round in many of the shops. We then went to fontanels for a drink and lovely cakes .very good day out

This old medieval city is very well preserved. Walking inside is very pleasant. You can appreciate the name silent city. It’s small and you won’t get lost. We spent 2-3 hours walking around and enjoy some food. A must see

Got here quite early before it got really busy. Beautiful walking around and it’s probably even better in the evening. If you are lucky you might see some filming too. A model was being filmed when we were there.

We walked around Mdina on a wet Sunday afternoon. The place is eerily quiet but absolutely beautiful. There are many unique shops and restaurants to visit and with the bus stop just outside it is very accessible. A wonderful day out for all ages.

Being a regular visitor to Malta, Mdina is still one of the highlights. Plenty to see particularly from the ramparts and well worth the trip.

Only spent an hour here as it was part of an organised tour but what I did see was very beautiful. Would have liked to have spent longer here to explore both Mdina and Rabbat which are next to each other. Beautiful architecture and a...More

We have been at the beginning of november. Is surprising to see this small town, a castle up on a hill completely yellow. narrow streets, and a medioeval atmosphere. Wonderful.

Lovely place to wonder and ‘get lost’ through the narrow streets, with great views over the island from the top of the walls.

I love Mdina. Never mind that it’s full of tourists. You’ll go up the steep hill in the bus (don’t rent cars in Malta they are all crazy drivers apart from one elderly gentleman taxi driver) and arrive just outside the fortress city of Mdina....More

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.
