The Arts Bridge (Pont des Arts or Passerelle des Arts), which crosses the Seine from the Louvre to the Left Bank, is one of the most charming of all the Parisian bridges. It was the first (1803) to be made of iron, and it has always been reserved for pedestrians.

The engineers Louis-Alexandre de Cessart and Jacques Dillon initially conceived of a bridge which would resemble a suspended garden, with trees, banks of flowers, and benches.

The bridge has sometimes served as a place for art exhibitions, and is today a studio en plein air for painters, artists and photographers who are drawn to its unique point-of-view. Furthermore, the Pont des Arts is frequently a spot for picnics during the summer.
