Even on a cold, windy January day this town was busy, so in the summer months it must be heaving yet it is a must see destination, steeped in history and with fascinating twisting streets and amazing architecture.Not too many tourist shops to spoil the atmosphere, a good choice of cafes and restaurants and spotlessly kept throughout. A lot of... More

There is a commanding view over the North and East slides of the main island. The wind can be strong though. The small walkways are said to turn at the distance an Archer can still well penetrate an armour, to make it easier to defend.

Beautiful old city lots of history. Fantastic views very peaceful at this time of year. Easy access via local buses only 1.50 euros single fare, rather than using tour sight seeing buses.

Lovely place to visit, easy also to get to with public transport for €1.50 from Valetta, takes just 20 min. It was a bit cold and windy, but no tourist masses. Truly enjoyed it for a few hours.

Amazing historic city, well maintained and clean. Any historybuff will enjoy this city. Take the well connected local buses and save the +10 euro the scalpers will charge you.

The old capital city, a walled city set on top of a hill, is a must see. You can also hire a horse drawn carriage for Euro 35 for 4 persons for 30 minutes, if you want a brief description of the buildings and are not keen on walking. There is a great caffee/bar which has an open terrace for... More

When in Malta, Medina is worth to visit. Is off limits and very very beautiful city. Take the time to stroll in the narrow street admiring the baroque buldings, beautiful churches. Mdina's not for mass tourists!
