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.

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
