This is the love lock bridge. You can’t put any locks in it anymore. But the view from here is nice. And Parisians sell art here, which is nice.

As said in another review, the River Seine vistas are interesting and most charming. The locks are no longer there but Pont des Arts is still the best place to capture Ile de Cite.

We passed under and over the bridge several times on our most recent trip to Paris. Once known as the “Bridge of Love Locks”, the locks (at least most of the locks) have been removed and the railings made lock proof. The “Love Lock” phenomenon...More
