This was historically a favourite spot for artists, and you’ll still spot painters on the bridge. The bridge was where Paris’ controversial love locks trend started. Leave the bridge behind you and cross over the road in front of the imposing Institut de France, home to arts, humanities and science academies. Walk along Quai de Conti, then take a left turn and continue up Rue Bonaparte. On your right you’ll pass l’École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts.
