This is a picture of Pont Wilson, a famous bridge in Tours, which is actually a replica. The original bridge, built during the 18th century, collapsed and this one was built in its place. It is also known locally as the "Pont de Pierre", a name which makes sense for obvious reasons. Pont Wilson crosses the Loire river right in the heart of Tours. In the foreground of the picture you can see a walkway. These walkways stretch along the Loire for several kilometers (or miles, if you will), allowing pedestrians to walk beside the river. On the other side of the river, in the background, you can see several neighborhoods, some of which are very elegant. The bridge itself is 434m long, approximately 1424 feet, and has 15 arches.
