Pont Royal is a bridge crossing the Seine near the Louvre. It is the third oldest bridge in Paris, after the Pont Neuf and the Pont Marie. The arches make it a stunning backdrop for photography at sunset.

I often use this 361-foot-long bridge over the Seine when going between the Orsay and Louvre museums. The bridge links the Left Bank, between rue du Bac and rue de Beaune, with the Right Bank near the Louvre's Flore Pavilion and the Tuileries Garden. But...More

It is the third oldest bridge in Paris, after the Pont Neuf and the Pont Marie. This bridge goes over the River Seine by the Louvre museum and it is easily recognisable by the humpback. It has great views of the city!

As per the title, it's a bridge, a very nice and it's an ex-libris of the city. Go to the Jardins des Tuileries, walk towards the Louvre, turn right and that's the bridge. Go over the bridge and head for the Musee d'Orsay. Used to...More

Originally constructed in 1632 as a toll bridge. This arch style, stone structure has seen many renovations and a rebuild (1685). Pont Royal has been classified as a "monument historique" being the third oldest bridge, after Pont-Neuf and Pont Marie, in Paris. Lovely views down...More
