2. Leaning Tower of Pisa

One of the most photographed locations in Italy, the famous Leaning Tower resting at an awkward angle in the historic city, makes for an awesome photo opportunity.

Despite construction work carried out at various times in the past to address this leaning landmark, the tower still rests slightly to the one side.

A popular pose amongst visitors that has swept across the internet, you can actually line yourself up in a great position that makes it look like you are physically pushing over the huge tower over!

3. Petra

One of the great wonders of the world, the ancient city of Petra is another insanely photogenic spot found to the south in Jordan.

Once the capital of a lost kingdom, Petra, long ago, was a crucial trading post. When the trading routes began to evolve, bypassing the great city, Petra was abandoned and left isolated.

Tucked away in a small, narrow canyon, the famous city, dating back over 2000 years, is a stunning sight.

Carved into pink sandstone, the treasury is one of the most photographed spots on the planet.

Visitors can scale the heights of the famous landmark and enjoy spectacular views of the city, often regarded as one of the most romantic places in the world.

5. Voringfossen


In a country packed with natural wonder, the iconic Voringfossen waterfall is right up there amongst Norway’s greatest sights.

Travelling to the famous waterfall, visitors can actually walk along an extremely well-placed platform to admire the famous fall sending water over 160 metres down.

Set in a small valley full of lush greenery, the waterfall might not be the country’s tallest, but, thanks to its stunning setting, is perhaps Norway’s most famous waterfall.
