What Would Pay for the Colosseum?

From The Huffington Post:
  "Most travelers would say that major world monuments like the Eiffel Tower or the Duomo are priceless. But, a new Italian study shows that you can put a price tag on just about anything. The chamber of commerce of Monza and Brianza calculated a list of the brand values of major European monuments using 10 different "economical, cultural and business parameters" that included the economic value of the land, the monument's reputation, number of visitors and tourism employees, multimodal accessibility, number of foreign visits and the value of exports."
So which monuments made the list and which ones were Italian? Did you guess the Colosseum? It's the #2 most valuable at a price tag of $114,259 billion. Italy had a second list maker in the Duomo of Milan ranked #4 valued at $102,959 billion. See the whole list here. Which mounment do you think made #1?
