Other reviewers have detailed the history of this late-16th/early 17th bridge that uniquely spans both banks of the River Seine while connected to the Ile de la Cite with all its various buildings of religious importance. Walking across this rather broad bridge, there are but a few points of interest including the equestrian statue of King Henry IV and the... More

Yes, its a lovely bridge and has an interesting history but its not outstanding like many other of the world's bridges. For example its not up there with the Tower bridge in London. And it should be included in any stroll near Notre Dame or Saint Chapelle but its difficult to get enthusiastic about a bridge with little more to... More

We were unaware of the history of this bridge till I read other reviews here we only wanted to walk this bridge to see where a part of the Bourne movie was made and to get to Notre Dame. Once we arrived here and were walking around it was a great experience to see the 2 sections of this bridge... More

It is the oldest standing bridge across the river Seine in Paris. It stands by the western point of the Île de la Cité, the island in the middle of the river. you will walk across this bridge without even realising it when you go to places in Paris. There is always people on this bridge and you can look... More

We were walking down to the Musee D'Orsay and we came to this bridge. We crossed and went down the stairs , walked around the the little island and decided to take a cruise with the boat that was docked there. Wonderful to just stroll down the street and see the bridges and walk along the river front.

Pont Neuf means new bridge but it is actually the oldest bridge in Paris. It is part of the landscape of the city. Its gargoyles make it look interesting. The Notre Dame can be seen from this bridge. I can't imagine walking along the Seine without this bridge.

I have visited pont-neuf both times i have been in Paris. Just feeling the atmosphere and walk around. You can for instance walk over one bridge and go near seine river banks ank bukinists and then walk back from the other side of the seine. There is always crowds so enjoy people around. Maybe you can hear some music from... More

We walked across the Pont-Neuf several times during our stay in Paris. This is the oldest bridge crossing the Seine river in Paris. Lots of nice views to be had.

I've crossed this bridge dozens of times over the years and never really thought much about it. I certainly noticed, however, that the structure has two different spans -- one on each side of the Ile de la Cite -- that connect the island to the right and left banks of the Seine. Then I did a solo walking tour... More

The "Pont Neuf" bridge means new bridge, technically I do not think it's so new...anyway it's a beautiful piece of architecture. I was able to cross along this bridge getting the direction of the cathedral of Notre-Dame. Fantastic is the view of the River Seine, and even more beautiful atmosphere closer to the famous cathedral and the "Ile de la... More
