My wife and I have been to Mdina several times and have never been disappointed.This walled city with its narrow streets has a haunting effect and the wow factor if you like history, is certainly here.

our visit was in a cold, windy night of January. The place empty, the light through the buildings was eliciting all their untouched ancient beauty, It was like being in a film set. And indeed we were told that quite a few films have been shot in Medina.

A must visit tourist attraction. Extremely rich in historical and religious places. Silence and tranquility are the main characters of this fortified city. A lot of restoration has been done during the last few years making this gem shine even brighter.

Mdina is a stunning old city. It is actually the old capital city of Malta, known as the silent city, full of noble palaces where you also find the cathedral of Malta. I suggest you visit Medina, you only need a couple of hours to enjoy a lovely stroll in this city down to the bastions where you enjoy a... More

We visited Mdina in January and were delighted to enjoy the place with far fewer tourists than we find when we come in the summer.

Beautiful location. Probably the best town/city site to visit in Malta. Rightful UNESCO status. Cool when it's hot.

I would certainly recommend visiting here but unless you've done your reading you'll be walking around aimlessly staring at buildings. We took advantage of the €35 horse and carriage ride. It takes about 30 minutes and you are shown and taught what all the different buildings are, when they were built and so on.

The old capital city with One of the best views in the country. Visited the Dungeons and museums even the cathedral.The city that no one can miss it's a must to visit. It is even called the silent city. I recommend to visit.

To visit this place in January when there seems to be no one else around is wonderful. The history and the architecture of this walled city is difficult to take in so I will be back in the next few days to look into it even further...maybe at night when the 'Silent City' is probably at its best.
