亚喀巴/佩特拉(Aqaba/Petra)

跟随“阿拉伯的劳伦斯”的脚步

当您在亚喀巴从您的MSC邮轮下船后,您就可以在该国最南端享受红海岸边这片诗情画意、阳光明媚的环境。
 
在过去的十年左右,亚喀巴已经从一个寒酸的穷乡僻壤转变成为一个令人愉快的休闲胜地——即使其资源仍然不足。 城里各种级别的酒店如雨后春笋般涌现,而豪华的海滨开发项目在海岸周边也层出不穷;进场的投资源源不断,完善了城市的基础设施和配套体系。 一些世界最好的潜水和浮潜活动聚焦在这里未受破坏的珊瑚礁水域。这片珊瑚礁位于城南海岸,与附近的佩特拉瓦迪拉姆(Wadi Rum)引人入胜的沙漠景点形成了鲜明的对比。

在名为Corniche的海滩路后面,许多街道和小巷聚集在一起,使市中心成了一个密集的街巷网络。 在您的MSC远洋航程岸上观光项目中,您还将有机会去探索佩特拉古城。 佩特拉藏在约旦南部 Shara群山深处的一处偏僻的山谷盆地,那儿难以逾越的岩石屏障使得它几乎与世隔绝,所以佩特拉仍然笼罩着一层神秘的面纱。

自从一位西方冒险家在1812年无意中发现此处之后,它激发了无数人的想象力。这里恢宏且充满戏剧性的环境推动它——就像金字塔或泰姬陵一样——成为一片传说中的地域。 如今,时间仿佛已在无形中给这个一度辉煌的城市拂上了一层柔和的面纱(该城因商队贸易而变得足够富裕,几乎可以挑战罗马的权威):两千年的风雨不但模糊了古典华丽立面的锋利边缘,而且还揉走表面的柔软砂岩,从而暴露出下方生动的多彩岩层,使整个场景的色调都变得柔和起来。

    CULTURE AND HISTORY

    AQA03

    If it's rose-red in colour, situated in the middle of the Jordanian desert and reputed to be half as old as time itself, the destination of this all-day excursion can only be the amazing ancient city of Petra. Having been hidden for centuries, this jewel of early engineering was rediscovered by the Swiss explorer, Johann Ludwig Burckhardt, in 1812 and then unveiled to the rest of the world. Situated about a 2-hour coach ride to the north of Aqaba, the city was hewn out of the solid rock by Nabatean Arabs more than 2,000 years ago and served as their capital city. These clever Arab architects even succeeded in bringing fresh water to their town using a sophisticated water conduit system, which turned the city into an artificial oasis. Your exploration of this UNESCO World Heritage Site begins with a walk through the narrow "Siq”, a stunning natural canyon that winds its way through towering rocks. As you emerge from the canyon, the bright daylight will reveal the Treasure (Al-Khazneh) in all its rose-hued glory. Carved into the cliff and rising several storeys high, the surprisingly well-preserved colonnaded structures have more than stood the test of time. The guided tour of the site will also include the Nabatean Theatre, temples and the royal tombs. To cap off your incredible sightseeing tour of this ancient city, a delicious lunch is included in the excursion. The scenic return journey in the comfort of your air-conditioned coach will bring this fabulous outing to a leisurely close. Please note: as the guided part of tour involves approx. 5/6 km of walking on uneven ground, it is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties. The availability of guides in languages other than English is limited. Should a tour guide be unavailable for your language, the tour will be provided in English only. You are recommended to wear comfortable, closed walking shoes and a light jacket. This tour is available only following MSC Lirica call: 09.04.2014.

    CULTURE AND HISTORY

    AQA04

    Located some way to the north of Aqaba in the middle of the Jordanian desert lies one of the most spectacular sights this world has to offer, the ancient city of Petra. Considered to be "one of the most precious ... properties of man's cultural heritage” by the UNESCO council and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, the city is famed particularly for the rose-red hue of the rock out of which it was hewn by ancient Nabatean Arabs c. 312 B.C.. After leaving your ship and boarding an air-conditioned coach, the first leg of tour will take you on a roughly 2-hour drive through the scenic Jordanian landscape to reach the ancient city. A walk through the narrow "Siq”, a shadowy ravine that carves its way through sheer walls of rock, then follows to reach Petra itself. Prepare for the big reveal as you come out of the ravine, when the sudden sunshine will illuminate the palatial pink city rising majestically out of the rock face. Incredibly, the sizeable ancient city, which once served as the capital of the Nabatean Arabs and even boasted a conduit system that gave the town potable water, lay hidden from the world for more than a 1,000 years until it was finally rediscovered by a Swiss explorer in 1812. Your guided tour of the extremely well-preserved site will also include visits to the Nabatean Theatre, temples, the royal tombs and time to enjoy your packed lunch. Please note: as the guided part of tour involves approx. 5/6 km of walking on uneven ground, it is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties. The availability of guides in languages other than English is limited. Should a tour guide be unavailable for your language, the tour will be provided in English only.

    Situated on the shores of the Red Sea in the south of the country, the bustling resort of Aqaba is Jordan's only sea port.

A drink will be served to welcome you at the resort, after which a few hours will be yours to do whatever you please. Enjoy the resort amenities as you relax or swim in the pool or go for a refreshing dip in the Red Sea. This day of sun, sea and sand comes to a pleasant close with your return journey to the port and your ship. Please note: high-factor sunscreen is recommended.

约旦

千年文化
千年文化

约旦度假意味着“领略沙漠”。“沙漠”这个词语虽然普通,但却涵盖了多类自然景观,比如遥远南部的瑰丽红沙和高耸悬崖,以及东部由火山玄武岩形成的广袤岩石平原。

约旦的北部山区有大片的橄榄树,它们在约旦河谷(Jordan Valley)的裂谷上随风摇晃,而这片河谷下行来到死海(Dead Sea),这里是地表的最低点。 约旦的中心地带是大片宁静的麦田,这些麦田被广阔的峡谷切割开来,并与荒芜崎岖的山脉相接。

约旦的最南端,众多的海滩分布在红海岸边,而这片温暖的水域拥有世界上最壮观的珊瑚礁之一。 约旦是连接欧洲、非洲和亚洲的大陆桥的一部分,曾有无数的军队在这片土地上征战。 希腊人、罗马人、穆斯林、基督教十字军等等都留下了他们曾征服此地的证据,而毫不夸张地说,该国的各个角落有着成千上万处各个历史时期的考古遗址,它们都等待着您在前往约旦的MSC地中海航程期间去探索和发现。 然而,这个国家远没有让自己停留在过去。 安曼(Amman) 就是一个非常现代化的阿拉伯首都,它的经济和社会活力也很值得关注。
