Pont des Arts

Behind the Louvre Museum, heading over to the Left Bank is the Pont des Arts, a pedestrian bridge spanning the Seine. It is always lively and you never know what you will see there. You might see impromtu parties, guitar players or singers. and sometimes some art work on display.

These two dapper gentlemen were there this day being filmed by someone, just strolling along with all of the tourists with their cameras taking photos of them who would also be in the shots of them.

From the middle of the bridge you can see Ile de la Cite, the island where Notre Dame is located.

A look in the other direction with the Orsay Museum down a way on the left.

A housboat tied up on the Seine right below the bridge. Wouldn’t you like to try this?

  2. We were fascinated by the houseboats we saw as we cruised from Conflans to Paris. I took lots of photos. Many of them had lots of greenery growing outside and some had cats or dogs.

  3. These pictures are lovely! I’m a big fan of the picture of the Ile de la Cite. The clouds are gorgeous!

    I’ll be back to visit your blog. Love it!

  4. Living on a houseboat sounds horrible since I’m afraid of deep water and I’d worry sick about one of my animals jumping overboard so no, I wouldn’t like to try it!

  5. Loved seeing these pictures. Reminded me of our “tour” of the Louvre and then to the Isle de la cite.

    Great post, Linda.
