琵琶湖北部をぐるっと周る長浜~マキノ~竹生島1泊2日ルート。

初日は秀吉に端を発する楽市楽座制度による長浜市発展の由来と、江戸・明治・大正期の建築が残るレトロな町並みの一角「黒壁スクエア」、昭和以降の長浜市再生の切り札となったガラス工芸による街並みをご覧いただきます。ガラス作品そのものだけでなく、ガラス作家さんの「思い」にも触れられるギャラリーやガラス工房体験は見逃せません!

ホテルは4万坪もの広大な敷地と自然に囲まれた地形に佇む「ロテル・デュ・ラク」をご用意。シンプルなデザインかつ洗練されたサービスを提供いたします。全15室と贅沢で静かな空間で「非日常」を思う存分ご堪能下さい。

翌日はホテルでゆっくりと朝食を召し上がられましたら、500本ものメタセコイア並木が待ち受けるマキノ町エリアに向かいます。約2.4kmにもわたって続く並木群は季節により見せる景色が様変わりし、訪れる人々を魅了し続けます。

午後に訪問します竹生島は琵琶湖八景のひとつに数えられ、古来から神の棲む島と言われています。国宝や重要文化財、かわらけ投げ体験などみどころが多く、島全体に神秘的な雰囲気が感じられます。また、古代より権力者との繋がりが強かったと言われており、特に秀吉は大坂城から極楽橋を移築するなど、豊臣家と宝厳寺は縁が深かったと言われています。
