A MUST visit. Truly beautiful and a gem, but there is no life. This is a heritage site, not a town so do not expect any life. More like a stage set with that amount of soul to it.

We visited the Mdina on a bus tour. Stunning setting. Very clean. Visited the Game of Thrones filming locations, since we are fans of the who. It would have been more interesting had we hired a tour guide to walk us thru the city. While it is incredibly clean and tourist friendly, unless you have a guide giving you the history, it's another ancient city in Europe. We spent 2 hours walking around, taking pictures. Which was enough time to get a look at the city, without going deeper into the history.

I was unsure of what to expect from Mdina but it was lovely, lots of narrow streets and beautiful old buildings, it reminded me of Dubrovnik in Croatia! Very clean and def worth a visit!
