For the 3rd time I have made the pilgrimage to Madina and yet again not disappointed. There is something magical and mystical about this ancient walled city. With panoramic views of virtually the whole of Malta you can understand why this strategic stronghold was so...More

An interesting couple of hours wandering round the old , silent, walled city. We went into the Mdina film show but probably would not recommend that unless time to kill.

Quaint, beautiful, quiet and extremely atmospheric. The evenings are particularly beautiful here, sitting out enjoying a lovely meal, watching the sun set. This has to be one of my all time favourite places, theres just something so magical about. Busier by day, but on the...More

Mdina is beautiful and has a great romantic atmosphere to it. You can almost see the whole Island from the walls and it is really a relacing place with a big bonus if you lile history and culture.

I’m gonna give this an extra star (2 in total), just in case I missed something major; however, I don’t think I did and I was majorly disappointed with this place. Yes, it’s a walled city. There are a few walled cities that I’ve been...More

An epitome of all that is Maltese culture, people and places. Medina offers the visitor and resident alike the opportunity to experience the beauty that Malta holds!!! I love 💖 Malta.

Love MDINA with its narrow streets and high fortress walls. You can either walk or take a horse drawn carriage to explore the city. It is even better to visit at night, very atmospheric, and fewer people around.

The walled city is a treat, I must have took about 100 photos within the walls, there are horse drawn carriages waiting when you arrive, but unless you are not able to walk, honestly its not that big to walk around at your own leisure....More

Nice to walk around and see the view. If you’re into museums or arty things that’s great otherwise there’s not much to see or do. Don’t need a lot of time to walk round it and there were more cars then we’d hoped.

What a great place to visit! A centertown full of well preserved buildings from16th to 18th century. Incredible atmosphere. Good number of interesting churches and a very interesting Catedral Museum. Don t miss it!

I was on a tour bus there seemed to be plenty of local buses available and they stopped right outside the walls. Not sure what a teenager would do especially a boy, but for girls plenty of shops!!
