Venice residents in environmental protest against first post-Covid cruise ship.

In March, Venice announced a ban on large ships, including cruise ships and shipping containers, following concerns from residents about pollution and underwater erosion of the city’s foundations.

The ban will only come into effect once new terminals are built to allow new roads around the city center.

Some residents took boats and lined the streets to protest as the first post-Covid cruise ship left town.

Other residents hailed the return of the tourist season, and the jobs it will bring.
