Favourite spot #1: The bridges of Paris

Talking about Paris…an infinite story.

The bridges of this city are something like the gate to an alternative world. A Toulouse-Lautrec kind of world, bohemian and artistic.

Take the groovy Pont des arts. Located in the heart of Paris just in front of the Louvre Museum, this bridge is well known to locals that like to share a wine and cheese dinner in summer. When the good weather comes, flâneurs from all around the globe will take their instruments and meet up at the bridge to watch the sunset go down while the music starts playing.

With golden lions staring at the Eiffel Tower, the Pont Alexandre III is my personal favourite. Just a five-minute walk up north and you are crossing the Champs Elysées avenue, so if you are up for some luxury shopping, this bridge may be the one you are looking for. Pay attention to the details of this bridge – you won’t regret it!

Those who watched Amélie and came to visit Paris following her trail, you might want to go check the bridges over the Canal Saint Martin. Encompassed by countless cafés  and bistrots this is the ideal Sunday-morning-brunch promenade. And of course, take a shot at stone skipping – as our French heroine did when she was feeling pensive.
