Pont Neuf - Review
The oldest standing bridge over the Seine river has a long and colorful history. It was the city’s link to it’s heart, the Ile de la Cite; a lively centre of crime and commerce. The last Grand Master of the Templars was executed here by burning. In the 18th and 19th centuries, it was the hangout for gangs, street performers, quacks, false limb makers. The rise of the boulevards led to the Pont Neuf’s decline as a city centre, and soon it was just another bridge to cross.So what is it like today? After some extensive reconstruction and restorative work, the bridge was given an entirely new character. It’s a spot to watch the river slip by, from the extended bastions. It’s a spot for people photography. It’s a spot where boys drop to their knees with a ring in their hands. It’s a spot to fall in love.

Pont Neuf, Paris Reviews
What an awesome place to visit. Of course with all the other unique places and things to do this was actually quite exciting. My daughter and I enjoyed the architecture as well as the surroundings. I would put it on your list if I were you as places to see when you're close by.
Very nice place to enjoy a lunch and a Glass og chilled wine, beer orden something like that. Please notice that you have to order and pay at the bar-counter next to the cafe. The employees will only come to your table if they have the time, but unfortunately they did not do that most of the times I have visited this place. Bathroom is near the kitchen in the middle of the stairs. You have to go through the small door.
My favourite place to pass some agreable moments with friends by the Seine river bank... 😎😍😊
If you're into history, the bridge is something you should try to see. As the oldest bridge in Paris, it wasn't much to look at. However, we took the bridge over to visit Conciergie and St. Chapelle.
Nice place to sit around and chill with friends next to the seine river.
