Prior to going to the Silent City up on the hill we made a stop at a local village called Ta'Qali Crafts Village. This was a fun and relaxing stop. No hustle and bustle of trying to take in as much as you can before it was time to head out. We parked right next to the Mdina Glass Factory Shop and went in for a glass blowing demonstration. After the demonstration, like all other glass blowing factories, they escort you into their showroom in hopes that you will buy their merchandise. We browsed and then headed out to a nearby souvenir shop. The shop had a big selection of items relevant to Mdina. We made a couple small purchases and headed back to the bus. There is a small deli type shop also if anyone needed a snack.
