The Costa Concordia cruise liner began its final voyage Wednesday, slowly being towed away from the tiny Italian island where it capsized more than two years ago, killing 32 people.
Boat sirens wailed and bells tolled on the island just before two tugboats pulled the Concordia away from Giglio's port, where the luxury liner ended up on its side after striking a reef in pristine Mediterranean waters.
The tugs are bringing the crippled ship on a four-day journey to the northwestern port of Genoa, which is home to the ship's owner, Costa Crociere Spa. The vessel will be scrapped there.
