Italy | Venice continues to grapple with massive cruise ships in WH-listed historic city center

In early June, the MSC Orchestra, a 2,500-passenger cruise ship, entered the Venetian Lagoon at dawn, sailing through St. Mark’s Basin, past the Doge’s Palace and the still-quiet St. Mark’s Square. It continued its journey through the Giudecca Canal and then docked on Venice’s main island.

It was the first time a cruise ship had entered the lagoon since the pandemic hit Italy in February 2020.
