メッシーナ/タオルミナ

シチリア島への玄関口

メッシーナは、シチリア島へ向かうMSCクルーズ客船から最初に見える街です。カーブを描く港の波止場から、太陽の光にきらめく街並みが丘の上に向かって広がっています。


MSCクルーズの寄港地観光では、メッシーナで一番重要な歴史的建造物、ドゥオーモを訪れます。かつて大震災によって崩壊し、まるで不死鳥のように見事な復興を果たしたメッシーナの街。 この街を象徴する大聖堂も、12世紀にルッジェーロII世によって建立された建物を再建したものです。このほか、ルッジェーロII世によってシチリア島各地に建立されたノルマン王国の教会群の中には、パレルモやチェファルの壮麗な大聖堂も含まれます。 ドゥオーモの隣にそびえるのは、世界一の大きさを誇る天文時計を備えたカンパニーレ(鐘楼)。ここでは、毎日正午になると、鐘の音とともに素敵なショーが始まります。何も知らずに通りかかると、街に時を知らせるライオンの銅像(メッシーナの古代紋章)の力強い遠吠えに、びっくりするかもしれません。


ドゥオーモの裏手、周囲より一段低くなった場所にうずくまるように建っているのが12世紀に建立されたサンティッシマ・アンヌンツィアータ・デイ・カタラーニ教会です。これはメッシーナで生き残った唯一のアラブ・ノルマン様式の教会建築です。 


地中海を巡るMSCクルーズでメッシーナから立ち寄るおすすめの寄港地観光は、美しい丘陵の街、タオルミナです。イオニア海を足元に従え高くそびえるエトナ山の山頂、そしてその山肌に広がる溶岩荒野の険しい表情。ここではイタリアで最も感動的な風景のひとつに出会えます。 


かつてヨーロッパの文豪たちが愛し、隠遁生活を送ったタオルミナ。有名な古代劇場の遺跡、壮麗なホテル、小都市の魅力を持ち合わせたこの街は現在、シチリア島屈指のリゾート地として多くの観光客の心を捉えています。

    Thanks to its strategic coastal location near Mount Peloritani, the Sicilian city and region of Messina boasts a rich heritage of 19th-century forts and old military roads that were once used to defend Sicily and the Strait of Messina. This tour gives you a chance to explore the beautiful landscape, folk traditions, historical roads and strongholds in the comfort of a modern off-road vehicle. The first stop is at San Rizzo wooded hill where your off-road adventures will start. A little further along the road lies Forte Campone, a 19th-century fort where you will stop to taste typical pastries and fortified wine. Next on the list is the Dinnamare vantage point, offering lovely views the Tyrrhenian and Ionian Seas. Before returning to the port, you will stop at the Museum of Popular Music of Mount Peloritani, in the village of Gesso, to admire the musical instruments of the Sicilian tradition. Please note: participants must be at least 8 years of age, provided that they can be properly seated and wearing a seatbelt. The safari leader will provide information only in English during the trip. Comfortable shoes and casual clothing recommended.

    The Greek, Zancle, founded Messina in 730 B.C.; earthquakes systematically destroyed the city, in particular by the eruptions of 1783 and 1908. Our tour departs by bus from the port to reach Ganzirri, a small fishing village situated near the Pantano Grande and Pantano Piccolo lakes, which are rich in marine nutrients. You will continue to Capo Peloro, the nearest point to the coast of Calabria. Enjoy a panoramic tour of Messina, admiring Piazza Cairoli, the Court House, the University and the Cristo Re Church, which dominates Messinafs harbour and the strait. We will stop for photos before continuing our tour past the San Francesco Church, the Government Hall, the Fountain of Neptune and the main street, gViale della Libert?h.

      The Italian island of Sicily is presided over by Mount Etna, Europefs tallest and most active volcano. Taking you to see this natural phenomenon and the nearby town of Taormina, this all-day tour begins with a 1.5-hour coach trip, passing through the town of Zafferana Etnea to catch superb views of the mountain and the sea. A little over half way up Mount Etna lies the cable car station of Rifugio Sapienza ? twice buried by lava over the years ? from where youfll then walk to the two inactive Silvestri Craters, which were formed during the eruption of 1892. The stark landscape and amazing views of the town of Catania make great photo subjects, so do keep your camera at hand throughout. Leaving Mount Etna behind, youfll then spend about 1 hour on the coach to reach the lovely little town of Taormina. Free time will then be yours to have lunch (at extra cost), after which a guided walk will take you past the ancient Greco-Roman theatre, the 15th-century Corvaja Palace, the small Roman gOdeonh theatre and the 13th-century Minor Basilica of St. Nicholas. There will also be more free time for you to spend in town on your own before the coach returns you to Messina and your ship. Please note: this tour is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair. In case of bad weather conditions, the program of the tour will have an alternative routing that will be reconfirmed onboard. It is advisable to wear a windcheater and comfortable shoes. All visits to the sites are external.

      Departing from the port of Messina, an approx. 1.5-hour coach ride will take you to Mount Etna, Europefs highest volcano reaching almost 3,300 m above sea level, on a route that will also pass through Zafferana Etnea, a town situated on the volcanofs southern flank that affords lovely views of the mountain and the sea. Once at the Rifugio Sapienza cable car station, which was buried twice in the course of eruptions over the years, at an elevation of 1,900 metres, you will then be taken to visit the famous Silvestri craters amid an otherworldly lava landscape of outstanding natural beauty. Breathtaking views of the city of Catania below also present themselves to visitors, a perfect vista for a snapshot. Your adventurous volcano tour ends with your return to the port and your ship.

      An enjoyable 1-hour coach transfer from Messina begins this tour to Tindari, a small coastal town of Greek origin that is rich in art and history. It is particularly known for the Sanctuary of the Black Madonna, a site you will visit to view the statue of the Madonna. A romantic local legend has it that Tindarifs lagoon was created after a woman accidentally dropped her baby into the ocean upon being startled by the black colour of the statue, whereupon the Madonna is said to have made the land rise to save the child. A visit to a Greek archaeological site is next, with a chance to step back in time and get a unique insight into early Grecian life. There will be time for you do some shopping in Tindari before you return to Messina and your ship. Please note: conservative attire recommended for visiting sites of religious importance. On holidays, shops may be closed.

    歴史、美食、ファッションの街

    イタリアの旅は、驚きと感動の渦。 ローマは、他に類を見ない偉大な都市。歴史に彩られた街並みの美しさはイタリア随一です。
     
    北西部沿岸に広がるリグーリア州は、昔から「イタリアのリヴィエラ」として親しまれ、夏になると暖かい太陽の日差しをお目当てに集まる観光客で賑わいを見せます。
    北東部沿岸に位置するヴェネト州の見どころは、なんといっても個性あふれるヴェネツィア。その美しさは世界的に広く知られています。 イタリア中部のトスカーナ州は、穏やかに波打つ丘稜地が広がる田園風景をはじめ、芸術の都フィレンツェやピサなど、イタリアを象徴する風景に出会えます。

    イタリア南部はカンパニア州を境に広がります。 その州都、ナポリは強烈な個性を放つ街。ここには南イタリアの精神が息づいています。 イタリアの「かかと」部分に位置するプーリア州は、あまり知られていないイタリアの秘境。特にガルガーノ半島の絶景と、多様な表情を持つ州都バーリはおすすめです。

    シチリア島は、イタリア本土とは全く異なる別世界。ヨーロッパ随一の古代ギリシャ遺跡の宝庫であり、国内有数の地中海ビーチリゾート、タオルミーナチェファルの高台からの絶景など、多彩な魅力にあふれています。
