Giglio: Italy`s wrecked Costa Concordia ship began its last voyage to the port of Genoa on Wednesday in one of the biggest maritime operation.

The ship, that sank over two years ago, will complete the journey in four days time and will be towed with the help of dozens of vessels, the BBC reported.

The dismantling process of the ship will reportedly take around two years time.
The ship carrying 4,200 passengers submerged over two years ago killing 32 people.

The bodies of all the victims have reportedly been retrieved except that of Indian waiter Russel Rebello.
The ship was pulled upright in September last year but it remained partially submerged.

Around $1.5 billion is being spent on the entire operation said to be one of the costliest.
