Trevi Fountain under scaffolding

Rome's Trevi Fountain has just gone under scaffolding, so don't expect to see one of Rome's icons anytime soon. The restoration, funded by the Fendi fashion house, is expected to last through at least autumn of 2015.

Portion of Paris bridge collapses under weight of love locks


Over the last few years a fad has developed in cities all over Europe. Two people in love will write their names or initials on a lock, lock it to a bit of railing on a bridge, and throw the key into the river. Bridges in almost every city now have tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands of pad locks hooked to them. It's a nuisance for city maintenance, which has to cut them off on a regular basis, and many cities have passed laws making the practice illegal. Recently a section of the Pont des Arts, a footbridge in central Paris, collapsed under the weight of the padlocks.
