The capsized Italian cruise ship, the Costa Concordia, will begin its journey to its home port of Genoa today to be scrapped.
The vessel crashed into a reef off the Tuscan island of Giglio in January 2012, killing thirty-two people.
Salvage workers have spent the past week re-floating the vessel.
The cruise ship is being towed at two knots, almost at walking pace, with an escort of more than a dozen tug boats.
The journey began on Wednesday morning and is expected to take four days.
