“A very beautiful and interesting place”
Review of Mdina Old City

Reviewed April 5, 2018

We were recommended to visit the old capital city and the organized tours were very expensive. We got information that it is possible to get there by public bus very cheap and convenient from the main bus station in Valleta.
It takes about 30 min and getting off at Rabat.
Then it is possible to visit the place at your own and get the feeling of the old and renew city.
It is very crowded but it is possible to see the sites and the great views from the higher areas. The cathedral of Saint Paul is beautiful and has to be seen. From there the way back is easy also by bus.

Mdina is a beautiful city and definitely worth a visit. Narrow old cobbled streets lined with picturesque apartments, very well kept. You can take horse and carriage tours of the old city. Theres a few cafes and gift shops. There’s not a lot to do though so a couple of hours here is enough! Tip - go to fontanella tea garden - amazing cakes and views!!

A MUST visit. Truly beautiful and a gem, but there is no life. This is a heritage site, not a town so do not expect any life. More like a stage set with that amount of soul to it.
