Venice dodges UNESCO’s endangered list after banning large ships

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


Venice was scuttled as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO on Thursday, just weeks after Italy banned the sailing of large cruise ships in the city centre.

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