Built under Napoleon I, this pedestrian bridge, linking the Louvre to the Institut Francais, survived bombing from WWI & WWII and a major collision with a barge that collapse a large part of the bridge. It was entirely rebuilt in 1984 with only 6 arches...More

Romantic place. Bridge is full of locks. Place closer to louvre museums and Notre-Dame. Nice view of river over bridge.
