The Most Creative Tourist Pictures At The Leaning Tower Of Pisa


The Leaning Tower of Pisa is not only one of Italy’s most iconic landmarks, but one of the most famous sights in the world. The structure is actually the bell tower of the adjacent Pisa Cathedral which has acquired a life of its own and became much more famous than the mother structure because of its unintended tilting which began in the XII century.

The Leaning Tower’s foundations were laid on unstable soil, and it was already tilting by the year 1178. Construction nonetheless continued and the monument was finally completed in 1372. Efforts are continuously being made to make the structure more stable, one of which closed the tower to the public between 1990 and 2001.

Today, millions of tourists visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa, a significant number of which are driven by the motivation to take a photo which suggests holding the famous monument from falling. Not all of those photographic attempts are cliches, though, even if your Facebook feed tells you otherwise. Here are some of the most creative snaps taken in the shadows of the Torre pendente.
