No More Big Ships in Venice

Starting December 1, 2014, cruise ships that are larger than 96,000 tonnes will no longer be allowed to enter the Guidecca Canal to pass by sites such as the Doge's Palace or St. Mark's Square.

This ban is the result of an agreement between the Cruise Line International Association and Italy's government after years of complains from environmentalists and Venetians.
