In this footage filmed on June 5, a cruise ship, the MSC Orchestra, sails through Venice, surrounded by protesters and environmental groups.

This was the first time after 17 months that a cruise entered the city.

At least 4,000 people protested on their boats as well as on the streets and called on the government to stop cruises from entering the city.

Pro-cruise demonstrators also took part in the rally to underline the economic impact of this industry.

The Italian Government is now trying to find a solution to this issue, which has been discussed by ministers and mayors for the past nine years.

The clip was filmed in front of the island of Giudecca, Venice.
