イラクリオン/クレタ

素晴らしい眺望

イラクリオンを訪れるなら、MSCクルーズの客船で海からアクセスするのが一番。 定番のアプローチ方法ですが、西側にプシロリティス(イディ山)の高みを従え、イオウタス山を借景に、この街が一番美しく輝く風景を愛でることができます。港に近づくにつれ、港の入り口に立つ偉大な要塞と旧市街を取り囲む城壁が、目の前に迫ってきます。
 
MSCクルーズの客船からイラクリオンに降り立ち、荘厳な要塞、おしゃれな市場、歴史情緒あふれる路地をぜひ訪れましょう。 多くの見どころは、この要塞都市の北東の角に集まっています。 大きいところで最大15メートルの幅がある壮大なヴェネツィア要塞は、イラクリオンの歴史上最も重要な建造物のひとつです。

建築構造はかなり良く保存されていますが、入り口はほぼ失われています。 プラティア・ヴェニゼロウ(ヴェニゼロウ広場)に向かって進んでゆくと右手にカフェやバーで賑わいをみせるエル・グレコ公園があります。その反対側、左手にはイラクリオンの重要な歴史的建造物、聖ティトス教会と有名な柱廊をもつヴェネツィア時代の市庁舎があります。これら2つの建物は大部分が再建されています。 すぐ上にはサンマルコ教会があり、教会の階段は近くの広場から上ってきた観光客でいつも混雑しています。

イラクリオから5キロメートル南、人工的に作られた広く緩やかな丘陵地にクノッソス宮殿があります。これは3,500年以上昔にクレタ島全体を支配し、繁栄した華やかなミノア文明の宮殿の中で最大の宮殿遺跡です。クレタ島の寄港地観光は、ギリシャを訪れるMSCの地中海クルーズでは見逃せないツアーです。

クノッソス宮殿の西翼から宮殿内に入ると、ここに迷宮伝説が生まれた理由がはっきりと理解できます。 地図とガイドを持っていたとしても、自分がどこにいるかさえ分からなくなるほどです。

With its aristocratic XVI century buildings and fascinating mix of Byzantine and Hellenic-Roman remains, this town exudes a charming air of faded grandeur. Rethymnon is a mixture of Venetian and Turkish influences and is dominated by a Venetian fortress; you will have time to wander the narrow streets, admire the architecture and browse the local shops.

    Take yourself back to the Aegean Bronze Age for a few hours to discover relics left by the Minoan civilisation that thrived on Crete from about 2,600 to 1,400 B.C.. You will first board a coach and head for the outskirts of Heraklion to reach the archaeological site of Knossos, the one-time seat of King Minos. A guide will show you around the labyrinthine palace complex, which includes the royal living quarters, rooms used for state occasions, a theatre, storage areas and potters’ workshops. Although discovered by a Greek national in 1878, the site only began to be excavated around the turn of the century under the direction of the British archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans. Next up is a visit to the Heraklion Archaeological Museum to continue the Minoan theme. The museum is home to an impressive collection of Minoan artefacts, from terracotta, marble and alabaster idols, through gold, jewellery, ivory and figurines to frescoes and sarcophagi, all of which go to provide a fascinating insight into the artistic flair of this ancient civilisation Enjoy some free time in Heraklion before returning to the ship.

    You do not need to have an expert’s knowledge of Greek history or Cretan civilizations to appreciate the fabulous Minoan Palace of Knossos. More than just a collection of stones or ruins, the Palace structure is still visible and visitors can wander the maze of rooms. A British archaeologist, Arthur Evans, who led the excavation of the site in the 1900s, reconstructed the Palace. Pictures on the walls help visitors gain a sense of the scale of the Palace – which was originally 20,000 square metres - and an idea of life here during the late Bronze Age. The Palace of Knossos is built on the ruins of a larger Neolithic settlement and of the supposed 1,300 rooms that made up the five-storey Palace, 800 are left today. After the visit, we will drive to Heraklion for free time exploring and shopping. Please note: the visit to the site includes walking on cobblestones and may result difficult for guests guests using a wheelchair. If wheelchair users wish to take part in this tour they must be accompanied by a paying helper to provide assistance with getting on and off the coach and that wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift.

    This tour will take you through some of the most beautiful areas of Crete that are characterized by lush vineyards and ancient olive trees. We will drive across the Aghia Varvara Pass to the southern part of Crete to reach the traditional village of Aghia Varvara where we will stop for a short visit. Our next destination will be the Messara Plain where we will explore the Minoan Palace of Phaestos. The Palace, situated in a magnificent location overlooking the Messara Plain and Ida Mountains, is second in importance and size to the palace of Knossos. The Italian archaeologist Frederico Halbherr excavated the Palace at the beginning of the XX century. The earliest settlements on the site date from the Neolithic Period and small settlements from the early Minoan period were scattered over the hill where the Palace stood. Phaestos was the centre of southern Crete, with two harbours, Matala and Kommos. Please note: this tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair.
