At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The romantic's bridge.

Built between 1802 and 1804 by Louis-Alexandre Cessar, the Pont des Arts ("bridge of the arts") or passerelle des Arts ("arts walkway"), is the pedestrianised wooden slatted bridge which links the courtyard of the Louvre with the Institut de France. This pedestrian bridge was originally built in cast iron but,after being weakened by numerous external events (war, collisions with boats etc.) was rebuilt at the start of the 80s in steel.
Today the Pont des Arts is an absolute must for a romantic stroll, adored by couples and painters because of its setting with an exceptional viewpoint over the Seine and Paris's monuments.
In summertime nothing beats watching the sunset on the Pont des Arts. Take a bottle of wine and join the Parisians and students having a relaxed impromptu picnic, perhaps accompanied by a guitar.
