We had a private guided tour through this beautiful old city, it was amazing to see the streets and buildings and to learn that noble families still live in them today.

It can get busy with tourists but quite rightly this is one of the top tourist destinations in Malta. There's nothing for adrenaline junkies but if you like old cities then this is a lovely place to wander around.

I visited here almost 20 years ago and in most respects its hardly changed. A beautiful, quiet, peaceful place, with an amazing past. If you visit Malta, Mdina really is a place you must visit.

Highlight of our holiday to Malta. Once you enter the gate to this beautiful, silent city, you get what all the hype is about. Explore the ancient, narrow streets and views. We had lunch at Rosmarino - delicious drinks and food at very reasonable prices....More

What a truly beautiful place. One to do again when we next visit. Easy bus access and so much to see. Very pretty and picturesque, even our 9 year old daughter loved it. One of the many highlights to our holiday.

Beautifully preserved, clean, historic city. Dates back from the Phoenicians onwards. Many nice cafes around. A must visit when in Malta.

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.
