Boat tours to see the Costa Concordia?
Who does not love a boat trip whilst you are on holiday, a chance to see the coast from the sea, whizzing across the stunning blue of the Mediterranean, I love them, and you see a side to the place you are in that you do not get to see from your cruise ship, much more up close and personal.
My last cruise me & my friend took a boat trip from the harbour in Dubrovnik, seeing the walled city from this angle, the colour of the sea and the clarity was just stunning, going round some of the islands dotted off the coast was heaven, and cheap about 10 euros each.
Well how about a boat trip with a darker side?
The Costa Concordia is in an industrial port in Genoa away from the cruise port, so those on a cruise do not see her, however locals are cashing in on her by offering for about £8 per person a boat trip to see the giant cruise liner close up, which capsized off the island of Giglio, killing 32, in January 2012
The hour-long tour, which leave Genoa’s old harbour every afternoon, takes visitors to the industrial port of Pra-Voltri, on the outskirts of Genoa.
You are given a close-up view of the ship, which has giant hollow steel boxes clamped to its sides to give buoyancy.
The Concordia is expected to take at least two years for the vast ship to be dismantled for scrap.
One I will be giving a miss, but would you ?
