Passerelle de Solférino

I'm in a romantic mood today, you will see that in my post as well. :) The Passarelle de Solférino is a footbridge with benches to sit on. It is one of the most romantic bridges in Paris. On its Rive Droite end you get to the Jardin des Tuileries and on the Left Bank Musée d'Orsay is just some steps away. This bridge is brand new (in bridge time: 1999), although there was another one in its place before since 1861. 

One of the bridges which are full of love padlocks

The official name since 2006 of this exotic wood-covered metallic bridge is Passerelle Léopold-Sédar-Senghor after the Senegalese poet, the first African member of the Académie française on the 100th anniversary of his birth.
