Reality: Leaning Tower of Pisa
When you arrive at Pisa you’ll be in for more frustration than you originally bargained for. You’ll be one of a thousand or so tourists trying to get the exact same picture at the exact same time.
Also, the Tower is almost always under construction because its lean continues to increase and will likely end up collapsing. If you do decide to ascend the tower to the top, you’ll be faced with nearly 300 unbalanced stairs.
