Update on cruisingBy
I stated in a recent post that Venice was now the number one cruise port in the Mediterranean. A new study reveals that the blue ribbon goes to Civitavecchia, the port about 46 miles/one hour from Rome. Two million passengers went through the port in 2009, according to EBNT (Ente Bilaterale Nazionale di Turismo).
For the record, the Port of Venice reports that 1,420,980 cruise passengers came or went in 2009.
I realize that you can make yourself verge on crazy by tracking each little item and what it means, but I thought it would be wise to update the hierarchy, lest anyone think I insisted on pushing Venice to the front of whatever line there is, just because it’s, you know, the most beautiful city in the world (TMBCITW).
