  • Venice no longer wants cruise ships to anchor as close to its historical sites as St. Mark’s Square.
  • In the future, the large ships should temporarily dock in an industrial port in the northern Italian lagoon city, as announced by four ministries.

In this way, a historical and cultural heritage should be protected not only in Italy but in the whole world.

In addition, the ministers had decided to start an ideas competition to structurally and definitively solve the problem of the passage of large ships in Venice, it said. According to the Ansa news agency, a new cruise terminal is to be built.

Legend:

The big ships should not come so close to the historic lagoon city. A cruise ship sails past St. Mark’s Square, which is popular with tourists.

For years it has been argued that the cruise ships are destroying the city’s environment and substance. The Unesco World Heritage City has only around 50,000 inhabitants. On the other hand, tourism rose steadily until the outbreak of the corona pandemic last year, with millions of people coming to the city on cruise ships. According to the region, around 13 million overnight stays were registered in 2019.
