Pont-Neuf, Paris

(4.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
Despite its name, Pont-Neuf is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris. This medieval bridge has two separate spans: one with five arches joining the left bank to the Île de la Cité, and the other with seven spans joining the island to the right bank. Be sure to note the turrets, shaped like half-moons, that give the arches their characteristic appearance. Then look for grotesque masks called "mascarons" that decorate the molding cornice on each side of the bridge. Plan to see Pont-Neuf and other attractions that appeal to you using our Paris itinerary builder.

  • The greatest adventure is to find a free place to put a new lock... but all couples manage and put his... If they don't have locks don't become problems because there are people selling on the bridge...

  • As its name does not, it is the oldest bridge in Paris. When you walk on it we're in the heart of the story and it's the best dressing room to admire the river Seine and the bordering buildings, classified world heritage, UNESCO. I recommend going a little before the sun goes down: when the beautiful limestone of the Parisian buildings are irradiated by the grazing light, it's beautiful and unforgettable. And so romantic when you do it couple :-)
