卡塔科隆(Katakolon )/奥林匹亚(Olympia)

体育运动几千年的摇篮

乘坐MSC地中海邮轮去希腊度假将是一次历史和神话之旅。 卡塔科隆是希腊圣安德烈亚斯湾(Agios Andreas)的一个很小的海边小镇,距奥林匹亚古代遗址只有20公里。
 
奥林匹亚在其超过一千年之久的岁月中举办过最重要的泛希腊(Panhellenic)运动会,就历史意义和影响而言,仅德尔菲(Delphi)或迈锡尼(Mycenae)能与之媲美。 MSC地中海邮轮将为您组织全面的奥林匹亚岸上观光之旅 。 奥林匹亚是希腊最大的古遗址之一,位于Alfiós河和Kládhios河的河畔,旁边矗立着Krónos山。

大量的废墟可能让人难以联想起它昔日的荣耀和辉煌,但遗址本身风景如画,绝对值得纳入MSC岸上观光。 走入遗址入口(距离现代化的村庄仅200米)后,游客可沿着阿尔提斯(Altis)墙的西侧游览一批公共和官方建筑。 市政厅(Prytaneion)曾是运动会管理人员的住所,官方在那里出资招待运动员们。

您还可以看到一个健身房和一个体育场馆 (摔跤学校)的废墟,当时由竞赛者在其运动会前一个月的强制培训期使用。 这之后是祭司府Theokoleion,这是一栋拥有大幅柱廊的建筑,其东南角被改用为一座拜占庭教堂。 阿尔提斯区的主要景点是宏伟的宙斯神庙(Doric Temple of Zeus)

它建于公元前470年和公元前456年之间,曾经和帕特农神庙(Parthenon)一样大,这个事实从众多乱立于地面的巨大柱根就可见一斑。 宙斯神庙的装饰也不亚于​​雅典最精美的​​帕特农神庙;其中,“珀罗普斯(Pelops)”(描绘的是他与拉皮斯人和半人马的战车比赛)和“赫拉克勒斯的丰功伟绩(Labours of Hercules)”这两座雕像在经过部分修复后现存于博物馆中。

Among the museum's most notable exhibits are particularly fine collections of beautifully detailed sculptures and bronzes as well as numerous terracotta artifacts and mosaics. The complex also includes a book and souvenir shop, which you may also like to visit. Your Olympic tour comes to a close with a scenic return drive to the port and your ship.Please note: this tour is not suitable for guests using a wheelchair.

希腊

在神的庇荫之下
在神的庇荫之下

如果您要玩遍散布在地中海的全部227个有人居住的希腊岛屿,请准备好一生的时间。
蓝宝石般的海水轻吻着岸边的岩石和海滩的幼沙,海岸线婀娜有致,点缀着星罗棋布的私密小海湾。这仿佛是一张梦幻般的旅行海报,但众所称颂的希腊夏日阳光、海水和沙滩的确正如这般美妙。



对所有热爱文化的人士而言,前往希腊岛屿的邮轮航程必将有所启迪。 每一种文化都在此留下痕迹,而几乎每一个城镇或村庄都有过去的印迹,无论是摇摇欲坠的阿弗洛狄忒神庙也好,闲人免进的威尼斯堡垒也好,还是饰以精美壁画却又尘土飞扬的拜占庭修道院也好,无一不如此。 


但在希腊岛屿上度假时,领略多样文化只是众多度假体验中的一种。 黄昏时分在温暖的海洋中游泳,或是在星空下交谈和畅饮—— 这类慵懒而暖心的享乐也同样极具吸引力。
要介绍希腊,就必须提到面积广阔且非常国际化的雅典(Athens):除了令人震撼的雅典卫城(Acropolis),它作为一个真正的大都市,还提供了各种不同的文化体验,不仅包括博物馆和音乐会,还有物资丰富的商店、美食餐厅和令人兴奋不已的夜店。
