Full description

Mdina, once the capital city of Malta, has had many names throughout its history, but its medieval name describes it best: "Città Notabile" - the noble city. Built on a plateau in the center of the island, its baroque cathedral and magnificent bastions dominate the skyline. A stroll through its narrow streets, which have not changed much in the last 1,000 years, is a must for any visitor to Malta. The area occupied by Mdina has been inhabited since at least the Bronze Age. The Phoenicians and Romans established their own settlements here, but the modern name and layout of the city reflect Arab rule before the Normans firmly established it as the country's capital. Although the construction of Valletta lessened its importance, a strong earthquake in 1693 led to reconstruction and a revival of the city. Since that time, Mdina has changed very little. Walk past the most notable sites in Mdina, including Vilhena Palace, St. Agatha’s Chapel, the Banca Giuratale, the Mdina Cathedral, and much more.

Matthew was our guide on the Mdina and Rabat tour. His knowledge about these places are astonishing and the stories he told (history facts and legends) were interesting and filled with detail. Plus he’s such a nice person and everything was on time and perfect! Would recommend this tour to everyone! Thank you Matthew! :)

I really enjoyed this slow walk in Mdina with Dylan. I got a lot of new information about Malta and its history. Dylan was a very warm, friendly and attentive guide. I would like to thank him publicly here for his excellent performance :) I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in Malta's rich history and architecture.

Our tour of Mdina and Rabat was very interesting and enjoyable. Our guide, Neville clearly loves his work, he knew so much about everything we asked him about - and boy did we ask a lot For a deep dive through the ages with fun and warmth, we definitely recommend this tour.
