What people are saying:

Along the way you can see many bridges on the Seine River cruise. The Art Bridge is a very famous bridge. It was destroyed many times after it was built. But it was rebuilt. The bridge is famous because many tourists hang love locks on it. After locks are fixed on the bridge, tourists throw keys into the river to show their heart.

Additional Information

Introduction

Built shortly after the turn of the 19th century, the Pont des Arts is a bridge that stretches across the Seine that was built shortly after the turn of the 19th century. It was Paris's first metal bridge. Napoleon commissioned the work using English manufacturing designs as an inspiration. The original bridge was damaged heavily during the two World Wars and would require rebuilding in the early 1980s. The modern bridge follows closely the original plans of designer Louis Arretche.
