Pont Alexandre III, Paris

#11 of 2,929 in Things to do in Paris
Widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in Paris, Pont Alexandre III is an arch bridge spanning the Seine that connects the Champs-Élysées to les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower district. This picturesque bridge, built from 1896 to 1900, features exuberant Art Nouveau lamps and sculptures of cherubs and nymphs at either end. Be sure to look up toward the top of the massive columns to view four gilt-bronze statues of Pegasus held by Fames that watch over the bridge. You'll want to spend an adequate amount of time looking for the hidden images that are carved into the pillars and the arch of the bridge: water spirits, cupids, sea monsters, and more.

  • Monument for bridge use donated in Paris by the eponymous tsar. Unique view of the Seine and its banks and the Invalides and the Grand Palais. Achieving a grandiose beauty.

  • We went on a cruise on the Seine. It is definitely the most luxurious bridge in Paris. It was a pity that there was no chance to cross on foot this time, but next time it is a bridge that I want to cross slowly.
