Passerelle Leopold Sedar Senghor virtually ensures postcard-worthy views of Paris.

Like Pont des Arts, Passerelle Leopold Sedar Senghor is not a primary location. Quite the opposite: it’s the perfect spot to kill time while you’re waiting to propose in the adjacent Tuileries Garden.

The steel bridge’s distinctive architecture and expansive vantage point over Paris make it a worthy albeit off-the-beaten-path Parisian photo spot.

Suppose you are in town with kids or just have a sweet tooth, then head across the park to indulge in a decadent hot chocolate at Angelina Paris.
