We passed and walked over so many bridges. Most offer great views. Then when I was doing my research, I noticed that this bridge was depicted in a Renoir painting and then realized how cool it is to have been here.

This bridge was a break-through for Paris centuries ago because it was the first that was built without any buildings on it. So it was the first time one could walk across the river and enjoy the view. Still spectacular.

The oldest bridge in Paris. Cross it, take a picture with the large monument to a Henri, then go down the stairs and take a boat tour with Vedettes du Pont-Neuf. (At 14Euros, this is cheaper than the Bateaux.) Afterward, relax on the Vert du...More

This stone bridge is old despite its name. Its a nice stroll across this bridge as you have some great views on both sides.

Came here during sunset and the view was fantastic. Not that crowded at all, but we came after 8pm. Walked the entire bridge to find out that 95% of the famous "love locks" have been removed. Only a small sliver were left to remain, and...More

Great location for your Paris in the background shots. Not too far from Notre dame. Plenty of police around to make you feel safe.

Ile de la Cite / Ile Saint-Louis
Two islands sit in the middle of the Seine at the very
heart of Paris. The more majestic one, Ile de la Cité,
sparkles with history. This is the birthplace of
Paris, the home of the Gothic Sainte-Chapelle, and the
site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,

The Eiffel tower is far away and on such a night most of the roads will be busy and probably if there are a lot of people near the tower the area will be closed. Best bets are Louvre, Concord, the city island. Maybe within... More
