The languages of guided tours

Colosseum guided tours
Originally uploaded by viralbus

When we were in Colosseum in Rome yesterday, I saw this sign, and it made me wonder why they offer those languages.

They only have tours in English, Spanish and Italian, and more in Spanish than Italian. Does this really reflect the visitors? Where do all those speakers of Spanish come from – South America?

And why no other languages – German, French, Russian, Polish or Japanese, for instance?
