Mdina is absolutely lovely situated on top of a hill, breathing peaceful living within the walled city. Well maintained and historic. Suggest a guided tour to get the full benefit of this visit. Easy access by public transport. Great views of the surrounding area.

Well worth a visit, for the city itself and for the views over the whole island. Cathedral and museum worth a visit.

The exterior walls of Mdina look magnificent, with well maintained gardens. The gate will be a familiar sight for GOT fans. Very quaint paths and beautiful sights of surrounding areas. Go for a horse ride if you fancy it.

Absolute must to visit whilst in Malta. I would recommend visiting during the day and at night as the whole mood shifts - the Silent City sure is an apt name at night! Quite a few attractions to visit within the walls and great restaurants.

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