Pisa got a big publicity boost when American actor and singer Will Smith took a selfie with the Leaning Tower in the background and posted it on his Facebook page. In the blink of an eye, the photo went viral and got more than 3 million likes.
He accompanied the photo with the comment: “Selfie with the Leaning Tower of Pisa. I am Anthony Bourdain!!”, referring to the American chef and author who travels the world visiting the most beautiful places.
The American singer and actor was vacationing in Tuscany last week. On July 15, the day before posting the Pisa photo, Will Smith added a photo of Florence on his Facebook page, commenting, “First time in Florence, Italy. WOW!”
Looks like Will has really enjoyed his time in Italy!
