Pisa’s famous bell tower has been leaning since its construction began in the 12th century. For all we know, this tower would have toppled years ago had it not been for the valiant efforts of fearless travellers doing their part to hold it up–and snapping a photo while they’re at it. Naturally, TravelPod members are eager to help, as you’ll see below. Here isyour guide to the many ways you can get a great photo of yourself doing your part!
