British citizens have voted the internationally renowned Mona Lisa the world's most disappointing tourist attraction.
The portrait hangs in the Louvre in Paris, which ironically features at number nine on the list — 86 percent of respondents thought the portrait, painted by Leonardo da Vinci in the 16th century, was a "let down".
Checkpoint Charlie — the infamous Cold War border crossing between the former east and west Berlin — is the second most disappointing attraction, disliked by 84 percent of Britons, while Brussels' Manneken Pis is third, with 80 percent unimpressed by the bronze statue of the urinating naked boy.

Holidaymakers also found Paris' Moulin Rouge and Eiffel Tower underwhelming, along with the Spanish Steps and Trevi Fountain in Rome, the Little Mermaid statue in Copenhagen and the Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy.
Other disappointing destinations included The Alps in Switzerland, Pink sand Elafonissi Beach in Greece, Cinque Terre in Italy and Netherlands' tulip fields.
"As people's attention turns to booking their summer holidays our research shows they're turning to social media not only to showcase their travels, but to inspire their next adventure in the first place," commented Daniel Young, head of digital experience at easyJet.
