Tackiest Tourist Pictures You Have To Take At The Leaning Tower Of Pisa

The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of the most photographed places all over Europe. Travelers venture to the city to see the tower that looks like it could fall over any second, and snagging a pictures beside it. When I first saw the Leaning Tower of Pisa, I remember thinking to myself “that building is going to fall”. After a few minutes at the tower I realized it will probably be another hundred years before it topples over. Imagine being the designer that crafted this architectural disaster that turned into a miracle against gravity. The tower in Pisa is certainly unlike anything you have ever seen, or will see.

Here are some creative ideas for your tacky tourist pictures.

Some say that Pisa is a tourist trap, however, I say the tradition of taking tacky pictures makes this town in Italy worth a visit.

With hundreds of tourist visiting each year, you may want some fresh ideas about how to pose in front of this leaning tower. Here are my suggestions.

1.) The Classic

If you aren’t sure if you can handle the goofy tourist photo try a classic pose.

3.) The Lean With It Rock With It

This happens to be my favorite pose. The pants I am wearing in this photo are not stretchy so I couldn’t get my leg up as high as I normally can. If you plan on doing this move be sure to wear comfy pants.


4.) Seated Kick Off
