Take the time to visit Mdina Old City, it's simply beautiful. We took a horse drawn carriage outside and were surprised when he took us into and around the city! We visited on foot afterwards as well to explore a little more, which was well worth it! Great views from the walls and all round worthwhile trip!

Plenty of buses from all parts of the island stop at the gates of the city. A beautiful, unspoiled place which you will love to wander around. For 5 euros you can buy a ticket to the cathedral and to the museum opposite, which is good value. Do not miss visiting Midina!

This is really worth a visit, the ancient walled city is beautiful, quiet and serene. It is virtually intact and full of history.

A really beautiful old city within its own walls. You can feel the history just walking around it and the attractions that explain the past and the building of the city are really well put together. A must for anyone visiting Malta.

Really pleased we got to see this place. We first took a horse drawn carriage through the Silent City and then through Rabat, which was really interesting. But it wasn't enough so we walked through Mdina to enjoy the small narrow streets and old buildings, churches and attractions, not to mention the fantastic little eateries. Truly a stunning romantic stroll... More

Maybe 30 minutes from Valetta is the beautiful mountain top fortress city of Mdina with its classic narrow winding streets and ancient architecture. Lots of interesting little spots, churches, and cafes but mostly the great views out over the island. People actually still live in this fascinating little city so it is an interesting combination of old and new. The... More

Skip the horse carriage ride as it is overpriced (35 euros) and lacks information. The city itself is very clean and walkable. Small, so it can be visited in about 2 hours. Several shops for souvenirs can be found throughout the city. Nice park outside the main gate for the kids. Public restrooms also located just outside the main gate.

They call this Old Capital as a Silent City of Malta. It is recently renovated and absolutely fabulous place to visit.
