バレッタ

16世紀の街並み

ユネスコの世界遺産に登録されている港湾都市、バレッタ地中海クルーズの客船が必ず寄港する、魅力あふれるマルタ島の首都です。

16世紀の後半にエルサレムの聖ヨハネ騎士団(のちのマルタ騎士団)によって設計され、フランス人騎士団総長のジャン・ド・ラ・バレットによって建設されたバレッタの港は、MSCクルーズの客船の船上から眺めただけで、その美しさに見惚れてしまいます。 街の面積はおよそ0.8平方キロメートルで、その範囲内に300以上の歴史的建造物が保存されています。クルーズの旅で訪れる寄港地の中で最も歴史的観光名所が密集している街のひとつで、他にもビーチや海辺のショップやレストランなどの見どころがたくさんあります。

マルタ島の寄港地観光はここ、首都のバレッタから始まります。クルーズに慣れている人でさえ、旧市街の街並みを彩る有名なマルタ・バルコニーには心を奪われます。 街の人々が一年365日毎日訪れても大丈夫なほど、数多くの教会に取り囲まれています。中でも聖ヨハネ准司教座聖堂は、マルタ観光の要所のひとつです。

一方、国立考古学博物館には、島内で発掘された先史時代の遺物が収蔵されています。 グランド・ハーバーのそばには、港の埠頭を見下ろすオーベルジュ・ド・カスティーユ(騎士団の宿舎)と美しいバラッカガーデンへ続く地下通路があります。この通路は、夜、街の城門が閉じられた後、旅行者用の避難用通路として使用されます。 マルタ島の中世の貴族の生活に触れるなら、カーサ・ロッカ・ピッコラへ。

16世紀に建てられ、現在マルキス・デ・ピーロ9世の住宅として実際に使用されているこのパラッツォ(宮殿)では、当時の調度品や第二次世界大戦中に使われた防空壕などが一般公開されています。 マルタ島最大のビーチからは、映画「ポパイ」のロケ地として使われていたセットが保存されているポパイ村が見えます。また、メリーハの聖母聖堂では、聖母子の姿が描かれたビザンチン様式のフレスコ画を鑑賞できます。このフレスコ画は、聖パウロと共にこの島に難破した聖ルカによって描かれたと言い伝えられています。

    Half a day off the ship and three of Malta’s must-sees are the measure of this entertaining sightseeing tour that begins with a short coach journey to the first of the destinations: the medieval walled city of Mdina, constructed by the Knights of Malta in the second half of the 16th century and once the capital of Malta. Also dubbed “The Silent Town” due to heavy restrictions on the use of motorised vehicles within its walls, Mdina is a place to explore entirely on foot. You will get to stroll through the lovely old city and have a chance to marvel at its old bastion. Next up is the town of Rabat, where you will take a short walk and enjoy some time to browse for a souvenir. The last place on the tour itinerary will then be the nearby town of Mosta to check out its fabulous Church of the Assumption of Our Lady, which was consecrated in 1871 and whose Rotunda boasts one of the world’s largest unsupported domes. A short coach ride back to the port and your ship then brings the tour to a close. Please note: as your visit to Mdina will be entirely on foot and involves long periods of walking, the tour is unsuitable for guests with walking difficulties. Although all sites visited are wheelchair-friendly, Mdina terrain is mostly cobblestones and might be uncomfortable for guests using a wheelchair. If wheelchair guests want to take part, they must be accompanied by a paying helper to provide assistance with getting on and off the coach and their wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift. Guests using a wheelchair who would like to participate in this tour are requested to contact the Shore Excursions’ Desk promptly once they are on board so that arrangements can be made. On Sunday calls, the visit to Mosta Cathedral will be external. Conservative attire recommended for visiting places of religious importance.

      When in Malta, you can do no better than to pay not only the islandfs current capital of Valletta, but also the former capital of Mdina a visit, both of which are the fascinating destinations on this half-day tour. Valletta is first up, where you will go to see the wonderful Barrakka Gardens ? a beautifully landscaped public park ? to savour breathtaking views of the Grand Harbour, after which you will head for St. Johnfs Co-Cathedral, built by the Knights of Malta in the second half of the 16th century. The ornately decorated interior is rich in treasures, including a masterpiece by Caravaggio. The tour then continues on to the medieval walled city of Mdina, which is situated in the middle of the island and is also called gThe Silent Cityh due to restrictions imposed on motorised traffic. You will get to visit the Baroque-style St. Paulfs Cathedral, which presides impressively over the town, before enjoying a walk through the narrow streets and lanes of this piece of living history. Your tour then draws to a leisurely close with your return to the ship. Please note: as your visit to Mdina will be entirely on foot and involves long periods of walking, the tour is unsuitable for guests with walking difficulties. Even though all sites visited are wheelchair-friendly, Mdina terrain is mostly cobblestones and might be uncomfortable for guests using a wheelchair. If wheelchair guests want to take part, they must be accompanied by a paying helper to provide assistance with getting on and off the coach and their wheelchairs must be collapsible/foldable since the coach has neither a ramp nor a lift. Guests using a wheelchair who would like to participate in this tour are requested to contact the Shore Excursionsf Desk promptly once they are on board so that arrangements can be made. If the call falls on a Saturday afternoon, the visit to the St. Johnfs Co-Cathedral will be external; guests will visit the National Museum. Conservative attire recommended for visiting places of religious importance. This tour is not available on Sunday calls.

        The islands of Malta and the nearby Gozo are home to an intriguing set of eleven prehistoric monuments, seven of which are classed as UNESCO World Heritage Sites, namely the marvellous Megalithic Temples of Malta. One of these fascinating sites of early engineering and worship forms the first stop on this half-day tour and will take you to the southeast of the island. These temples are among the oldest free-standing buildings ever found in the world – some pre-date the Egyptian pyramids – and make highly evocative representatives of a bygone age. You will then continue on to the pretty fishing village of Marsaxlokk, situated on the shores of Malta’s second-largest natural bay, to see the traditional, brightly coloured “luzzu” fishing boats. In keeping with a seafaring tradition that possibly goes back as far as the Phoenicians, all of these luzzi have a pair of eyes painted on the bow, perhaps to make sure they always know where they’re going. A panoramic drive through “Cottonera area” with a walking tour of the historic town of Vittoriosa – one of the three Historic Cities – comes next before reaching the port and your cruise ship. Please note: this tour is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties or using a wheelchair.

        To visit the island state of Malta, leave your ship and board a motorboat to embark on a relaxing sail along the scenic Maltese coastline, along the way passing by the lovely Cottonera area made up of Senglea, Cospicua and Vittoriosa, which are collectively known as The Three Cities. Nearly opposite Cottonera lies the Maltese capital, Valletta, whose harbour you will approach via the water route. The city has retained much of its architectural heritage and one of its most iconic sights is Valletta waterfront, a marvel of 18th-century Baroque architecture that has been extensively restored. Do take your camera to capture awe-inspiring views of the waterfront, while also enjoying a wine-tasting session at this unique location. Before returning to the port, you will stop at a renowned jewellery for shopping. Please note: the feasibility of the excursion is subject to wind / sea conditions on the day of call. This tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair; there is a flight of stairs to have access to the boat.

      マルタ

      悠久の歴史にふれる旅へ
      悠久の歴史にふれる旅へ

      マルタ島は、1万年以上にわたり覇権争いの舞台となった歴史を持つ地中海の中心に浮かぶ島国です。ここでは歴史と近代が見事な調和を奏でています。

      マルタ共和国は、 マルタ島ゴゾ島コミノ島の主に3つの島から成り立っています。 その歴史は、新石器時代にまでさかのぼります。ビルゼブジャ北部には、最古の人類の生活痕跡が残るアール・ダラム洞窟(マルタ語で「暗闇の洞窟」の意味)があります。 一方、キリスト教ゆかりの地を訪れるなら、モスタへ。ここでは、世界有数の壮大なドームを擁するサンタマリア・アスンタ教会を訪れましょう。

      マルタ島で過ごす休日には、島の中央部を訪れるツアーも含まれています。「静寂の街」または「高名な街」の異名を持つ古都イムディーナは、高い城壁に囲まれた要塞都市で、細い路地には手工芸品店や小さなレストランなど小さなお店が並んでいます。 この街からは、一番美しいマルタ島の風景を堪能することができます。

      マルタ島の南部には先史時代の歴史が刻まれています。パオラにあるハル・サフリエニの地下墳墓は、紀元前4000年から紀元前2000年の間に建造されたとされる3階建ての巨大地下構造物で、神殿または地下墓地として使用されていました。また、マルタ島とゴゾ島に残る7つの巨石神殿群のひとつを訪れることもできます。 ゴゾ島の中心都市、ラバトでは、150メートルの高さから街を見下ろす堅牢な城壁に囲まれたシタデル(要塞)を訪れます。
