Malta (part 5)

Today we headed by bus to Mdina/Rabat. We spent the first few hours in Mdina (the silent city) where we went to the Mdina Experience, walked along the walls a bit and looked out at the view and had a look inside the cathedral...

Later we headed out to Rabat where we went into the St Agatha Catacombs where we were delighted by a very informative and knowledgable guide. We also had lunch in Rabat and visited the Roman Domus where there were some lovely mosaics as well as other remains.

After that it was back to St Julians for a swim and our evening meal.

Some photos of the day:

What we saw!

Ian and I were punished by the boys... as you will see Ian was undeterred from reading his newspaper!

The Roman Domus, outside...

...and in!
