Updated: May 1

Mdina, or The Silent City, is one of the most popular day trip spots in Malta and it's easy to see why. This majestic walled city was the capital of Malta for thousands of years until the Order of the Knights of St. John took up residence and moved it, first to Birgu (one of the three cities) and finally to Valletta.

Bucket List for visiting Mdina:

Mdina Gate

St. Paul's Cathedral

Mdina Cathedral Museum

Palazzo Falson

The Mdina Dungeons Museum

St. Paul's Catacombs

Carmelite Priory

Pjazza Mesqutia

The Knights of Malta

Roman Villa

Fontanella Tea Garden

The Mdina Experience

Best time to visit and holidays:

Spring and early summer, April, May, and June is the best time to visit Malta. The weather is not hot (sunny days and the nights are cool) and there are fewer tourists. You'll able to swim if you don't mind the slightly cooler waters.

We went at the beginning of April and the weather was PERFECT! The temperature was great for getting out and exploring without being miserable in the heat.

Hope this inspired you to visit this incredible location! If you are looking for more options check out my Exploring Malta series!
