The Leaning Tower of Pisa is one of Italy's most iconic tourist attractions, and also one of the strangest sights in the world due to its unique tilt. Millions of people flock to see the torre each year, and their number-one goal is to use the power of forced perspective to take some seriously funny photos.

Serving as the belfry of the adjacent Pisa Cathedral, the Leaning Tower was doomed almost from the very beginning. Its foundations were laid on unstable soil, and even in the year 1178, builders could see that something was very wrong with it. However, construction continued, and the monument was finally completed in 1372. The Tower of Pisa was closed between 1990 and 2001, during which time soil was removed from underneath it, returning it to a safer degree of leaning.

Check out some of the most hilarious photoshoot cliches and creative Pisa moments people have captured below, and if you've been to the bel paese yourself, add yours to our list!

The big shadow on the left side makes it even look more like he's the same size of the tower

The " old building" next to the tower is in fact the Cathedral of Pisa, not just an old building, which together with the Tower and the Baptistery, form a religious complex.

Thanks for moving it. I didn't know there was a statue of infants suckling a wolf behind it. Why are there no "look at me, I'm nursing a Direwolf teat" poses?
