This is one of the things I think of when looking back on our Paris trip. I had read an article about the toll that the locks take on the bridge, so we didn't actually place one. I'm not totally sold that they don't want people doing this since nobody is patrolling or anything, but nevertheless. There will be a lot of vendors selling locks and offers to take photographs, but we just enjoyed the view and snapped some pictures ourselves. The idea is romantic and I'm quite glad we went.
