  • Bridge Tournelle-historic and would be one of the oldest in Paris, was built in 1651 from stone and even more of the old wooden bridge, which constantly destroyed insidious water of the Seine. And this stone bridge stood until the year 1918, when it was completely demolished after serious destruction during floods of the year 1910. The latest revision of the bridge was made in 1923-1928 Gg. and while it stands firmly. You all know this, and you can just jump on this bridge to the island of Saint-Louis, on the popular tourist route. While the bridge itself externally special is not remembered.

  • The Pont de la Tournelle is one of many and very picturesque bridges that gives us the city of Paris. We carry out a picnic on the platform that runs along the river and from there we could see it together with so many iconic buildings of the city.
