The oldest bridge in Paris with great views across the Seine. Lovely part of the walk to Notre Dame and I would recommend this as a sight to see on the way.

This bridge is one of the many crossings across the Siene but what makes this one stand out a bit more than the others is the fact that it offers lovely views of the Notre Dame and the Louvre at the same time. Not a...More

This is the oldest bridge across the Seine and the information about it is on the bridge itself. There are great views from it and the history of it is worth a read.

This is the oldest bridge of Paris. It's an excellent viewing point. You see the Seine of course, the square du Vert Galant, Le Louvre, la Samaritaine .... Walk down to the Seine and admire the bridge from another point of view.

The view from the bridge is quite nice at night, it's worth crossing it to hit the numerous shops and restaurants near by.

This was the first bridge in Paris that was built without structures, so it was a revolution, open to views of the river plus the fresh air. Folks came here to stroll and linger and they still do. Classic design. Great views.

Pont-Neuf is more than just the old bridge. The area around is just so cool. There’s plenty of spots to slow the pace down and just enjoy being in this beautiful city.

In spite of the name (New Bridge) it is the oldest extant bridge in town. Originally built to house shops and houses, it connects the Right Bank with the Left Bank and the Ile de la Cité. The buildings are gone, but the semicircular outcrops...More

Pont-Neuf, depicted in a famous painting by Renoir, should be the oldest bridge in Paris. The love-locks are disappearing but you can still have stunning views around while standing on this bridge.

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,

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
