    Pont Neuf....incredible bridge

    Pont Neuf

    We got to see this bridge from ground level, and also from a boat. We took a nightime cruise with Bateaux Parisians, which led us right underneath this bridge. It was one of our favourite moments in Paris - a group of Parisian ladies were all singing the Champs Elysees song and dancing with our daughter - what a night that was......

    Pont Neuf

    Pont Neuf translates into "New Bridge". While it was a new bridge at one time, that time was about 400 years ago! These days, Vieux would be a little more accurate adjective as Pont Neuf is currently the oldest bridge on the Seine.

    Unfortunately, the bridge was under renovation when I visisted Paris.

    LES VEDETTES DU PONT NEUF FOR A BOAT TRIP.....

    By one of the Vedettes du Pont Neuf you can enjoy another Paris, Paris from the water..

    Departure: at the Pont Neuf, each day 11 times per day!

    When it is Autumn or Winter the boats are lovely warm and the most exciting things to do is having a boat trip in the evening when it is getting dark and you can enjoy the thousands of lights.......

    Les Amants du Pont Neuf

    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.

    Iles de St Louis & de la Cité

    Pictures coming soon.

    I spent an afternoon wandering around the central islands of Paris. Notre Dame is there of course and the Pont Neuf links the Left & Right banks of Paris via the two islands.
    No Metro stop on the Ile de St Louis.

    by OrlandoBR Updated Oct 6, 2003

    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.

    If you've crossed the Pont Neuf recently, you've surely seen this guy. He stands there for hours at a time in this costume. I can't imagine how he does it on those hot summer days. If you see him, be sure to give a few Euros.

    Pont Neuf - dressed in blue!

    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!!!!

    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!!!
