It’s hard not to get infatuated with the going ons on Paris’ many bridges. The French kissing. The posing. The taking in the view. The architecture. The atmosphere. In fact, one could easily spend an entire week just exploring the thirty seven bridges that span the Seine. I have four favourites:
1 -The Pont Neuf for being the oldest and most emblematic.
2 – The Pont des Arts because it’s THE PLACE to be for a bohemian picnic as the sun sets just to the left of that tower in the horizon.
3 – The Pont Alexandre III for its sheer decadence and curvy cherubs. Want proof of just how cool this art nouveau construction is? Well, this is where James Bond jumped off in “A View to a Kill” in 1985.
4 – The Pont Saint Louis connects the two islands in the middle of the Seine. Here, the huge metropolis takes on a small town feel with live jazz, maybe a freshly made crêpe or if you’re lucky enough to get a table at the corner cafe Esmeralda, you can take it all in whilst sipping a very Parisian diabolo menthe!
And here are some random shots that make me want to move to Paris so that I can soak up some more of that Pont fever:
