Steeped in history and so worth a visit. Relaxing atmosphere and pretty buildings. Added bonus was seeing the Mdina GP which pleased the other half.

We had a fabulous morning seeing the sights of Mdina. We started with the short film The Mdina Experience. Then we meandered around the streets and finished our photo ops with lunch at Xara Palace. Must see/do!

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