American tourists break into the Colosseum in Rome to drink beer – NBC2 News

CNN — This week, Italian police caught two American tourists who broke into the Colosseum after dark.

The pair climbed over high railings to enter, walked up the ancient steps to the second level of the building, and decided that the famous arches pointing outwards to the city of Rome would be a great spot to have a beer. 

However, an individual noticed them and called the police. The officer escorted the two tourists back to the city center of Rome.

A spokesperson for Rome’s carabinieri police force told CNN: “During the early hours of Monday morning, some people noticed two young men drinking beer in the Colosseum, facing outwards on the second level. They alerted a police car nearby, which then stopped the two young men on Via dei Fori Imperiali.”

They were handed a $900 fine.
