Landmarks That Have Been Destroyed By Tourists

When in Rome

The Japan Times

The Roman Colosseum has experienced its fair share of vandalism over the years with countless tourists carving their initials and names into the monument. A Russian tourist was given a $24,800 fine for carving the letter “K” into the structure in 2014. In 2018, one tourist was caught trying to steal a brick from one of the inside walls while another tried to make off with a stone from the outer columns.
