From the boat you can easily catch lifts up to the high part of the city cost 1 Eu – just walk further around the port until you reach them. Gorgeous town. We also visited Mdina on the public bus – you can take 51, 52 and 53 and probably some others. Tickets available from the bus driver. Malta uses Euros. The port office has free walking tour maps as you leave boat and the tourist office up top a little walk through the town has tplenty of helpful advice about buses around the island etc. We also visited the tunnels used in ww2: very interesting. You can catch a ferry to another war museum but we ran out of time at the end of the day. Read Less

What a lovely city! The cathedral and Palace of the Grand Master were splendid as was the atmosphere in town, but this only showed how clueless we were to the “political volcano” that was emerging all around. It was only when we returned to the ship at dinner that we learned why our cell phone service wasn’t working. The government turned off all service to prevent its citizens from rioting! Another clue was the lack of city lighting as we sailed away- the government shut that down too! It appears that the populace was more than furious with its top leaders who had some part in the assassination of a prominent journalist who had been looking into government corruption. Check out the past news about this, but we learned that the president had recently resigned. BTW- our friends who were on a HOHO bus had a problem- the bus wasn’t showing up, and they couldn’t get a call through to the company. They were forced to take a taxi to the port. To get to the city, follow the walking path to the lift where you can ascend to the Upper Gardens for One Euro. Easy walk to the main attractions. We walked back to port. Easy peasy! Read Less

We took the hop on hop off bus (15 euros each). We didn't have much time here but we went to Mdina and it was beautiful. What a magical place.

Mdina is the former capital of Malta, a fortress city now mainly residential. There's much to see in Mdina including very good shopping and eateries. If you have time, take horse/buggy tour with one of the locals or do it easily on

There were four other cruise ships in port which made the town super crowded. It was hard to get around. We visited the Picolomini Plaza and the Co Cathedral. Would have been much better without the crowds.

Favorite port on our trip. We just walked off the boat and made a right on the main street to the elevators to go to the beautiful city square. We also came back and took the short ferry to the 3 cities.

Loved visiting this port of call. We walked up the hill from the ship and toured the city, while geocaching. We went to a great spot behind the fort, found a swing and walked by the sea then headed back up the hill again. We saw a man pushing a musical cart; that was fascinating to watch. We put in a good day walking the streets and mingling with citizens. We had great gelato! Read Less
