Venetians vote to ban giant cruise ships from city’s lagoon

Venetians have voted in favour of banning giant cruise ships from the city’s lagoon, saying they disgorge too many tourists and damage the environment.

More than 18,000 Venetians voted in an unofficial referendum organised by a campaign group on Sunday, with nearly 99 per cent saying they wanted the vessels kept away and offered alternative docking facilities.
