Giants of the Seas in the Renaissance City of Venice

A special attraction in Venice are the gigantic cruise ships that squeeze through the lagoon. Some of them are mooring next to St. Mark’s Square. The World Heritage Site with its beautiful Renaissance buildings in contrast to these Giants of the Seas! What a sight! Let’s hope that the fragile foundations of the magnificent buildings and bridges along the canals are not affected by the enormous displacement of water of these ships! 

Eine besondere Attraktion in Venedig sind die riesigen Kreuzfahrtschiffe, die sich durch die Lagune zwängen und einige von ihnen direkt am Sankt Markusplatz anlegen. Das Weltkulturerbe mit seinen wunderschönen Renaissance-Gebäuden im Kontrast zu diesen Riesen der Meere! Was für ein Anblick! Hoffen wir, dass die fragilen Fundamente der prächtigen Gebäude und Brücken entlang der Kanäle nicht durch die enorme Wasserverdrängung dieser Schiffe beeinträchtigt werden!
