However, several tourists in Italy will likely be fined up to 3,000 euros for trying to take away about 100 kilograms of sand, rocks and shells from local beaches.
The Associated Press reported that, according to Italian media, a total of 41 tourists in recent days tried to take away about 100 kilograms of sand, shells and rocks on the beach of Sardinia (Sardinia), the group of tourists will likely be fined up to 3,000 euros.
