Follow the Costa Concordia as She is Towed from Giglio Island

The Costa Concordia is finally on the move away from Giglio Island. The ship, being towed under the power of two tugboats, departed Giglio earlier this morning at a speed of about 2 knots. It's enroute to Genoa, Italy where it will be scrapped.

What's kind of interesting is that you can follow along as Concordia makes her final journey. The Parbuckling Project website has a live tracker aboard the ship and 9 live webcams offering views as the ship transits the Mediterranean sea. Follow along at

What are your thoughts as one of the final chapter of the Costa Concordia saga begins?
