Venice and cruise ships – level 2

14-06-2021 07:00

In Venice, Italy, the government said that cruise ships could not go into the historic center of Venice.

So when a large cruise ship came to the center for the first time since the coronavirus started, hundreds of people protested. People used small boats to block the water, play music, and shout at the ship.

Some protesters explained their feelings. They said that this model of tourism was hurting the city.

A director for the cruise ships responded that Venice is a place where many journeys start and stop. He said that it could be a problem for business if they changed the journeys, and he added that they were trying to fix the issues with the city.

Difficult words: since (from a time), model of tourism (a way to make people visit a place and spend money), issue (an important thing for a discussion).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
