Pont des Amours over Vassé Canal in Annecy, France

I was delighted to learn this quaint bridge over the Vassé Canal next to Lake Annecy is called Pont des Amours, or Bridge of Lovers, until I learned the nickname was derived from its 20th century reputation as a rendezvous point for prostitutes. Ah, the romance returned, however, when I was told if you kiss your lover at the mid-point of the cast iron bridge, you will remain together forever.
