One-day Private Tour
Marco Polo Bridge (Lugou Bridge)
We will pick you up from your hotel at 8:00am, or if you
feel like sleeping in, we can pick you up at your hotel at
10:30am. From your hotel we will drive directly to the Marco
Polo Bridge, 15km/9 miles southwest of the Beijing City
"Over this river there is a very fine stone bridge, so fine
indeed, that it has very few equals in the world." - The
Diary of Marco Polo
The Lugou Bridge, also known as the Marco Polo Bridge, is
well known because it was highly praised by the Venetian
traveler Marco Polo during his visit to China in the 13th
century (the bridge was later known in Europe simply as the
Marco Polo Bridge), and for the Marco Polo Bridge Incident,
which marked the beginning of the Sino-Japanese War
(1937-1945). Hundreds of artistically unique stone lions
from different eras line both sides of the bridge. The most
intriguing feature of these beasts is the fact that there
are more lions hiding on the head, back or under the belly
or on paws of each of the big lions. Investigations to
determine the total number of animals have been carried out
on several occasions but the results have proved
inconsistent, ranging anywhere from 482 to 496. How many
will you be able to find?
As well as being famed for its aesthetic features, Lugou
Bridge is also considered to be an architectural
masterpiece. It is built of solid granite, with a large
central arch flanked by ten smaller ones. Each of the ten
piers is protected by triangular iron pillars that have been
installed to prevent damage by flood and ice.
After exploring the bridge and the bridge and the
surrounding areas we will then drive back to your hotel.
