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. Our Paris online trip planner makes visiting Pont Alexandre III and other Paris attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Pont Alexandre III Reviews
This bridge is a sight to see. I loved how the statues on the tall columns are well kept with their gold coloring and there are a lot of sidewalks space in order to walk around and take pictures of the river, Eiffel Tower, and other backdrops of Paris. An easy walk there and you won't regret it!
A great place to roam around. Also, the club is just awesome. Club is underground and pretty big. You can reach here easily as it's near the metro station.
