Venice Dodges UNESCO Endangered Listing After Ban On Large Ships


Italy has banned large cruise ships from sailing into Venice (File).


Venice avoided being named a world heritage site in danger by UNESCO on Thursday, just weeks after Italy moved to ban large cruise ships from sailing into the city centre.

The World Heritage Committee meeting in Fuzhou, China, cited Italy’s ban, which begins on August 1, and gave Italian authorities until next December to report back on efforts to preserve the city’s ecosystem and heritage.
