The Italian government has issued a decree banning cruise ships and container ships from passing through the historic center of Venice, Sky News reports.





To introduce these measures, the Italian government was forced by the need to preserve local species and nature from destruction. Instead of the center of Venice, liners and container ships are invited to stop at the yet-to-be-built terminal outside the historic center.

“Everyone who has visited Venice in recent years has been shocked to see these ships hundreds of meters long and as tall as residential buildings passing through such vulnerable areas,” said Italian Culture Minister Dario Franceschini.

While the terminal, capable of receiving vessels with a displacement of more than 40,000 tons, is not built, liners and container ships will stop at the nearby industrial port of Marghera.

Earlier in Venice, the canals were shallowed. The city's mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, said the rapidly changing water levels are linked to climate change.
