The Costa Concordia finished its final journey on Sunday. It's been towed to Genoa, where it will be dismantled. The ship turned on its side after striking rocks off the Italian island of Giglio on Jan. 13, 2012. Look back on the disaster that killed 32 people.

The ship weighed in at more than 114,000 gross tonnage and measured 951 feet in length. A 160-foot (50-meter) gash in the hull sent water rushing into the vessel. It is owned by Genoa-based Costa Cruises and was christened in 2006, at which point the ship was believed to be the largest cruise ship flying the Italian flag.
