Tourists causing damage in Paris

Jump to last reply

I don't know if this has been discussed in the Fodors forum, but a few years ago tourists started putting locks on the bridges of Paris (and other cities, I understand). Lovers inscribe their names on the locks, attach them to a bridge and throw the key in the Seine.

I know that this sounds horribly romantic, but it has gotten out of hand and has begun to cause serious damage to precious landmarks. I believe that very few people who are doing this are aware of the risk they are causing. But if you're not the kind of person to deface public property, this is not the thing for you...

You can read more about it here, but I'd ask you all to STOP.
It has become heart breaking. Merci.
