Costa Concordia finally touches Genoa harbor after long journey

  • The Costa Concordia finally reached Genoa harbor after being towed 200 nautical miles from Giglio Island in a very complex maritime operation, as per media reports. 

    A spokesperson for the harbor master said the effort involved a lot of “power and prudence,” with air-filled tanks making maneuverability a special challenge.

    The Costa Concordia had hit a rock in 2012 resulting in the death of 32 people. The ship's captain faces several charges, including manslaughter.
