Venice moves to limit cruise ships
« on: August 13, 2019, 09:26:24 AM »
"An Italian official announced this week Venice would begin rerouting cruise ships away from its historic city center.

Some ships will be redirected to dock at other terminals in the lagoon, including Fusina and Lombardia, starting next month, Danilo Toninelli, the Italian minister of infrastructure and transport, said at a Wednesday transport committee hearing, according to CNN and The Financial Times.

By next year, he said he expects a third of cruise ships will be rerouted."
