Whilst exploring Paris we walked over 'Pont Neuf' bridge. In the middle of bridge is the new place where everyone puts love locks. As the Pont des Arts Bridge has removed all the locks and put up perspex to prevent locks going back on due...More

From Pont Neuf walk down the stairs to this small park. It is an historic park where a king met his mistresses. Today, the fencing has locks placed by couples in love.

site of the prison where Marie Antoinette was held
before her execution. Tourists flock to see the iconic
Notre Dame and the beautiful bridges that straddle the
Seine. Ile Saint-Louis, the more provincial island,
