Venice diverts ships

THE Italian Government has announced a ban on large-scale cruise ships in the heart of Venice, opting to send them instead to the industrial port of Marghera on the mainland.

New rules affect ships of 100,000 tonnes or more and follow a temporary limit imposed three years ago.

The move comes after a long-running campaign to reduce the impact of cruise ships – see more in today’s Cruise Weekly.
