Italy is a favorite destination of tourists from various countries, say as you've ever known from various news media major world. Even in some beach-scented tourist areas, such as Venice, the island of Capri or the famous Cinque Terre actually began to deny the presence of the tourists.

They feel the presence of tourists has disturbed the comfort of local residents, thus asking the city authorities to start providing new policies by limiting the arrival of tourists at certain times.

But. Something different from the historic buildings in Rome, as featured on the site CNN Indonesia, August 2, precisely if less appropriate in its care, it is feared the tourists are no longer interested to come.

They have thought of several developmental steps, to bring new value through modernization without losing its historical value.

The Italian government is now trying to reorganize the Colosseum, a historic building in central Rome, Italy. As quoted from the site Lonely Planet, the Italian government plans to build an archaeological park in the center of the Colosseum, in the hope that more tourists will arrive and increase the country's revenue.

Of course every good move will get a response, the State Council, the highest administrative tribunal in Italy showing direct support in its ruling last week.

But unexpectedly, the city government of Rome rejected the plan, because it is considered reducing the sustainability of the city.

Italy's Minister of Culture has also sparked a Colosseum structuring plan in 2014, in an effort to maximize state revenues from the millions of tourists who come there each year.

Administrative and managerial measures have been established by employing the managing director, and since then the state income from the Colosseum has tripled.

Regardless until now there are still pros and cons about the construction of the archaeological parks, given the several times occurred cases of destruction of buildings by tourists who come.

Colosseum has always been a starting point, considering there are many other historical buildings, so the status of tourist visits there is always a reference for the government.

And maybe this year you decided to visit Rome, as is known throughout the year 2016 ago, the visit rate reached 6.6 million pieces of admission. Extraordinary!
