A charming bridge in the very center of Paris, with a nice view on the river Seine. Imposing structure, very large road, and of course quite some traffic on it.

Pont Neuf means the 'new bridge' was started in 1578, it is now the oldest bridge still standing over the river Seine. It crosses from right bank to left bank with a stop on the Ile de la Cite. Its built like Roman bridges with many small arches.

Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge in Paris built by Henry III in 1578; Two elgant arches are to admire and in the middle of the bridge is a statue of Henry IV on his horse; you can visit it by a stair behind the statue of the king.

It's a sight to behold. I hope this does not get taken down like they did with Ponts des Arts. Touts are there to sell you a lock to use along with a permanent marker to borrow to write your message, and frankly, they were not pushy, not overpriced, and really quite pleasant people providing a service. Hats off to... More

Saw on our boat along the seine in June 2012. Then walked along it later on our trip. Very nice of Paris from here as well as other bridges too along the seine. Too bad it was a cool and rainy day.

The bridge is famous for being almost entirely made out of locks. They locks is everywhere. And the bridge goes over water!
