Malta: Part Five

After our glorious pool day, we decided we should get back to seeing the island. So we pulled on our explorer boots and headed to Mdina, the old capital of Malta.





Mdina is also known as 'the Silent City' due to the fact that there are only 300 people residing within its walls. It was almost eery drifting through the streets, no other souls in sight bar the same tourists we kept repetitively bumping in to.








The city was stunning. Each building decorative, covered in beautiful stonework. We caught one of horse and cart taxis and trotted around the narrow streets, viewing the city from every angle before climbing up to the highest point of city and going for dinner at Fontanella, a pretty little restaurant with views looking over the whole of Malta!








Lulu was getting fed up with all the picture taking....






Just look at all that cheesy goodness! These next two photos were our view from the restaurant. They're of a city right by the coast, miles from where we were. The evening was really clear and the zoom on my camera is slightly incredible, but more incredible was just how far we could see from our vantage point at the restaurant!





Before we knew it, the sun was setting and it was time to head home. Mdina was a beautiful place to visit and I'd definitely suggest anyone who's in Malta goes and visits.

  1. I went to Malta a couple of years ago and loved it! Did you visit the island of Gozo...that was my favourite bit. Hope you had fun :)
