AX Hotels Sliema FO Agents take on The Silent City
On September 16th, we had a chance to explore and learn more about Mdina. Despite living in Malta for a while and having previously visited this popular tourist spot, I was excited to gain deeper insights to better inform our guests.
We gathered at Mdina Gate to start our journey through this ancient city surrounded by imposing walls. Known as “The Silent City” and once the capital of Malta before Valletta took over, Mdina has a unique history.
Even though I had visited many times, I couldn’t help but appreciate the stunning views that continue to attract tourists and even served as a backdrop for productions like “Game of Thrones.” Our guide shared stories about St. Paul’s Cathedral, the famous well, the Roman Villa, and various statues commemorating saints and St. Paul. What fascinated me the most were the noble houses with their distinctive red windows, courtyards, and historic wells. The panoramic views of the nearby cities were truly breathtaking and serene.
We also embraced tradition by visiting the renowned pastizzi shop in Rabat, The Serkin, to savour this Maltese treat.
I’d like to thank the management of AX The Palace and the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA) for this opportunity. Apart from making new friends, we received valuable information that will help us better serve our guests and, hopefully, exceed their expectations, which is our top priority.
