Perfect Romantic Experience

The most romantic bridge in Paris, Le Pont des Arts also known as the Passerelle des Arts is the target of love lockers. Built as a toll bridge in 1803, it was the city’s first iron bridge and lying close to the heart of France’s prestigious Academy of Arts and Letters, is celebrated by poets and artists for its delicate ironwork and beautiful Seine views. Today however more than 1,600 different sized and shaped “love locks” commonly known as love padlocks are affixed to the railings,  the oldest apparently dated 2008. Lovers and visitors from all over the world, aware of the bridge’s romancing traditions, have padlocked engraved metal souvenirs of their love and commitment, on the Pont des Arts railings before hurling the key into the Seine.  It is the perfect romantic experience in one of the worlds most dreamy and romantic cities.  Thank you Jessica for the brilliant photos! http://jessicamarchetti.com
