Mdina the silent city tour (With pick-up and drop off included)Half-day Tours

Mdina the silent city tour (With pick-up and drop off included)

Mdina and Rabat are two popular localities in Malta (South West), and each admired for very different reasons. Mdina is one of the most popularly visited places by travellers because there’s no place like it anywhere. Sitting on top of a hill overlooking large parts of Malta, it’s a small town, rich in history and surrounded by tall bastion fortifications. It’s filled with centuries-old buildings that have been well maintained throughout the ages. Today Mdina is a major tourist attraction recognised internationally as an important UNESCO World Heritage Site. Rabat, the village that neighbours Mdina, on the other hand, is known for its quiet, more rural character and natural beauty. Included in the Tour are transportation services, plus a licensed tour guide with a sound knowledge on the history of Malta.
