The city of Mdina has long been called the "Silent City of Malta" due to the fortified walls that confine this medieval town.

Here are some ideas for day two: delve into the distant past at Hagar Qim Temples, witness the site of a historic battle at Saluting Battery, then admire the landmark architecture of St. John's Co-Cathedral, and finally take in nature's colorful creations at Upper Barrakka Gardens.
