Le Pont des Arts (“Bridge of the Arts”) in Paris is a lovely pedestrian bridge crossing the Seine that links the Louvre's Cour Carrée ("square courtyard”) and the Institut de France. It is also commonly known to Parisians as Le Pont des Amoureux or Lover’s Bridge. Couples have taken to attaching padlocks to the bridge then throwing the key into the river below, as a romantic gesture. So it's fitting that Le Pont des Arts is the bridge where Carrie and Big rendezvous in the final episode of Sex and the City. Though I haven't yet finished describing the London leg of my European adventure, here's a little taste of Paris.
