LE PONT NEUF
I remember those I had no chance to know,
the famous unknown whose names the pavements
still mumble so low that none of the sacred
syllables comes to hurt the poem's ear.
The windy arches through which the bridges overlook,
it is the river Seine swirling near the Pont-Neuf
Beaudelaire slowly goes by, and Verlaine is smiling.
Through the sleeping city, passes history.
It's called "Place du Pont Neuf", the Pont Neuf square. A peaceful place at a great location in Paris, right under the city's most legendary bridge. Always filled with lovers, sun-bathers and book readers.
Even though its name means "new bridge" Pont Neuf is the oldest bridge of Paris. I love the views around here at night, with the Conciergerie, the Louvre and Notre Dame. And the day before the Euro came (30 December 2000) we were lucky to see the dress rehearsal of Pont Neuf in European colours!
This is the oldest of the bridges across the Seine. It is a sold stone built bridge. When it was first built, it was the first time people were able to walk across the Seine.
It is the oldest bridge of Paris and also known for Christod wrap arts a few years ago. It is also the lovers bridge, because it is said that when you kiss under it your love will last for ever!!!!
Pont Neuf ist actually pretty close to the Champs-Elysees. I think this brigde is exeptionally beautiful with its golden and black architecture!
The Pont Neuf is the most famous bridge in Paris. I'm sure you've seen it in many movies. It's very romantic walking over it in the evening.
A very special place for Lovers!!!
