Whisper it quietly - this is a wonderful old walled city, steeped in history, blessed with stunning architecture. Dubrovnik suffers with overcrowding - but Mdina, whilst on a smaller scale, is just as beautiful. The cathedral is inspiring, and you can get lost in the...More

We just took a walk through the old city. It doesn't take much time to see it. It's a great little place with a great atmosphere. We went there on a cloudy day in the morning; there weren't many visitors then.

Although not big, this is a spectacular walled city. Beware of the high cost of the horse and carriage rides, fun but expensive and they do t take you far.

The city of small streets and high walls was a fascinating place to visit. Paul's visit to Mdina is memorialized in the city sculpting. Bring your New Testament.

My wife and I toured this old city with a tour. It is exceptionally clean. Actually so clean it is almost eerie. The place is beautiful. We enjoyed ourselves it is easy walking with some hills. The view at the one end is outstanding

Interesting walled city. Worth walking round on the outside and worth going in. Beware of steps and uneven pavements, great views of the surrounding countryside.

The easiest way is by local bus, you need to catch one to 'Rabat Interchange' which is right outside Mdina entrance.

The public transport is good. We used the €15 card with 12 single rides. Driving a car is more expensive and they drive terrible.

No need to worry, English is spoken everywhere and info is available in English most of the time. If you fancy a Horse & Cart through the city will cost about 50Euros and if you combine with tour to Rabat (very nice St Pauls... More
