Russian tourist fined £15,800 for carving initial on the Colosseum - Telegraph
Ouch! I doubt the tourist will ever forget his $26,000 trip to the Colosseum. Without a doubt the Colosseum is the most magnificent site I have ever visited. Tourism is a major component of the Italian economy and I can understand the stance they have taken. Natural environmental elements are taking their toll on the ancient structures without humans adding to the degradation. The Colosseum officials sent a powerful message to would be graffiti artists.
Agree, it is a fantastic place to visit!
The atmosphere is a lot of fun here!
Enjoy the area, but watch out for a lot of "Dubious people"!
so what is the problem? Imagine me putting my initials onto Lincoln memorial. Does anyone believe I will get away as cheap as $26.000. Well I might get on top a few free nights without using any points I i might not like the specific location the police will put me in.
Stupidity can be expensive!
ps. ask the kids, they will agree . Was there in February 2015 last time
