    For some locals in #Venice, the absence of #cruise #ships from the city was one of the few upsides of the #Covid-19 pandemic, with the city’s waterways left cleaner and calmer as a result. But as the first cruise liner to set out from the city since Covid restrictions were eased left port on Saturday, June 5, many now fear a return to business as usual.
