Mdina, Malta's former capital is situated on a hilltop in the central part of the island and dominates over two - thirds of Malta. It is one of Europe's finest examples of an ancient fortified city, characterized by medieval and baroque architecture. Known by the locals as the " Silent City", it encloses within its walls palaces belonging to Maltese aristocratic families, the majority of which are secondary homes. 

Walking through Mdina you will feel as though the city has been frozen in time; its narrow winding streets, majestic palaces, churches and courtyards make this city unique, a must-see during your stay in Malta!
Rabat, a suburb of Mdina, is also a historical town with strong religious ties. According to tradition during his 3 months stay in Malta, St Paul the Apostle lived in a grotto beneath the parish church.Your guide will lead you along some of the most typical street in Rabat highlighting the most important architectural features as you go along.

Wonderful tour of the very beautiful Silent City & neighboring Rabat. Our guide was lovely & informative with extensive knowledge of Malta's history and plenty of edgy stories about its past to keep things entertaining. Our group consisted of around 10 people: the perfect size to hear everything and ask questions, but also drop back and take things in on our own without feeling rude.
Amazing guide - insightful stories!
