The area
Address
Neighborhood: Ile de la Cité / 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, welcomes you with cozy traditional eateries, small boutiques, and what some people say is the best ice cream in the city. This is essential Paris from its very beginnings to its modern appeal.

Oldest Crossing the Seine

Pont-Neuf is the oldest standing bridge crossing the river Seine. It is an arch bridge constructed in 1607. A highlight for seeing and photographing as well.

Old New Bridge!
Oct 2019
Pont-Neuf is the oldest .... new ... bridge in Paris! It was actually built in the early 16th century, and officially opened in 1607, being the newest bridge at the time. Whilst the older bridges have disappeared and replaced by newer ones, this one remains. It is located right at the centre of Old Paris. This particular area is the birthplace of the city. Around the years 250 - 225 BC, this area was known as the Roman city of "Lutetia", which later became Paris! The surrounding area is in fact the older part of Paris. We crossed this bridge several times and the views from it are quite nice. In fact the bridge has two parts as it also crosses a small island, so it is built with two spans.

a great way to see the Seine
May 2019
Paris is about the river Seine but to see the river you need the bridges. The Pont-Neuf is a beautiful example of the style of bridges built in the 1600s and is still usable today. This is close to the Louvre and can be used to get close to Notre Dame.

It is recommended to have a walk around the overall island (Ille de la Cite) in order to note such wonderful bridges and their impressive decoration by statues.

The oldest bridge
Jan 2020
Crossing the Seine, (at the tip of ile de Cite) is the Pont Neuf, (new bridge), sounds confusing, however when it was built in the 1600’s, during the reign of king Henri IV, it indeed was new.

Just for the sake of history

Otherwise a very simple looking bridge, but when you know the history behind it - you would like to take a walk through the oldest river bridge in the city of love
