Virtual Visit: Bridges of Paris, Part 2: Pont des Arts
Updated: Sep 22, 2020
Continuing this week's investigation of water in Paris with today's virtual visit, we'll move just downstream of the Pont Neuf (the focus of our last visit) to explore the history of another one of Paris' most famous bridges: the Pont des Arts. We'll examine how the bridge got its name, what happened to the first bridge on this site, and what the "Love Locks" are really about.
A note: the primary venue for this content is the stories feature on my Instagram page. All of the virtual visits will be saved in my story highlights. The purpose of the blog posts is to allow a greater audience (especially those without social media accounts) to benefit from the same content.
Et voila! A little examination of one of the most famous foot bridges in Paris.
