This walls, houses and other buildings were constructed long ago. When the capital was moved from there (around 16th century) these buildings stood still and remain so in time. As soon as you enter the old city you feel the old narrow paths, the horses moving around and the knights make their way. You feel the air of another proud... More

It is a must just to walk the streets and maybe have lunch in Mdina. We felt really happy and relaxed after a day here and at the Catacombs

Strolling on the streets of Mdina is an extraordinary experience. It is a beautiful place, seen from outside and, even more, felt when immersing on its narrow ways, between old buildings, into that special light.

A lovely, cosy place to wander about, a cool torture/horror museum. The cathedral and another museum are quite pricey and from our personal experience - once you have been to some other places (like the Medina in Marrakesh) you will find that Mdina here feels quite similar but more like a replica - it lacks the atmosphere. Overall we had... More

visited twice during our holiday as it was such a lovely place to see and so much to do. Try a horse and cart ride as the guides are very knowledgeable about the city.

Make sure you visit the cathedral and museum. Avoid the guided tours and take your time to see all the artifacts on show in the museum. The inside of the cathedral is amazing
