The first bridge was made of wood and it was built to give people a good view of the wonderful Annecy Lake. It was later rebuilt with iron by Charles Galletto.

Boats moored on the banks and arched trees on the side add a romantic setting for whoever passes by. The bridge connects the European Gardens and Paquier Esplanade.

This bridge, however, has a dark past – it used to be a rendezvous for prostitutes.

So, be careful who you kiss on this bridge because there’s no turning back! Just make sure he’s for keeps and she’s the one. 😉

How to get there: 

The town of Annecy is actually nearer from Geneva than from Lyon. It’s a 30-minute ride from Geneva and almost two hours ride from Lyon. You can either take a train or take a blabla car. The latter is cheaper, of course.
