We visited this with a guide and found it very interesting and were able to buy some very nice glass articles from the medina craft place

At the end of the day this was the perfect way to do some sightseeing without doing any more walking. It gives a flavour of the area and whets your appetite to come back and visit again....perfect little trip.

A attraction for children. You can go around all the interesting places in Mdina and Rabat without getting off the "train". You will appreciate this idea if the temperature is higher than 25 degrees Celsius

Having chatted to other visitors, we were recommended the sightseeing train. We first explored Mdina and it was easy to find the ‘train station’. The short journey of about 30 minutes took us around the outside walls of Mdina and through the lanes of neighbouring...More

The train takes 30 minutes to travel outside the walls of Mdina, through Rabat and Mtarfa. For 5 euro it's worth taking for the potted history and general lie of the land. Good views of Mdina from outside the walls.

The train is located outside Mdina - in front of the Domus Romana. This is a trackless train and really something to combine with touring Mdina. It is only about 30 minutes but gives you an opportunity to see a little bit... More
