Grand old walled city. Great place to wander through the narrow streets and view the church, unique shops, old buildings and the view from the wall. It is well preserved and quite a history lesson.

Mdina lives up to its nickname of the Silent City. Beautiful narrow, high-walled streets lead to a spectacular view looking back towards Valletta. The doorways and piazzas are charming and picturesque. The only surprise was the number of cars within the city, no doubt driven...More

Nice place to walk around, usual shops and narrow streets, good views across Malta. Can't say I was over impressed but it is worth visiting as it is a tourist attraction. The town nearby is with a walk around

We took local bus from Sliema and other than a traffic tie-up, it was very easy and one direct bus. From the bus stop, it is a very short walk (not more than 200 metres) into the old city through its main gate. We were...More

Mdina is immediately next to Rabat. We parked 200m from the entrance of the old city. There is also a parking at a side entrance in the citywall to the north-west of Mdina. So no problem at all.
