The City is a monument that you should not miss. Situated in the middle of the coontryside, it is symbolic for what the Maltesers have done.

A historical old city inside the fort of Mdina. The Mdina glass is beautiful. We had a good time inside the Mdina city and going around Rabat. Very memorable. Me, my wife and kids all of us enjoyed thoroughly. Worth the visit.

Small but very picturesque place. Medieval city preserved almost intact. All these streets contained by city walls create special atmosphere. Simple walk gives really great pleasure. City walls provide spectacular view at countryside. Definitely worth to visit especially that public communication provides very good connections...More

This was the old capital of Malta and it seems like an oasis away from the dense population in the rest of the island. It feels like you are in a time capsule.

If you come to Malta, this has to be the number one sightseeing stop. Try and get here very early to soak up the atmosphere, before the tourists descend in their droves. Great views.

What an amazing place. So much history and culture. A photo opportunity is to be found around every corner. You can take a horse and carriage ride and car parking is easy too. If you're visiting Malta I highly recommend a visit to Mdina.

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

I would agree with what everyone else says. Buses are reliable, cost-effective and air conditioned! A 7 day pass is definitely good value :)
