Pont Alexandre III

Paris, France
4.9 / 94
A graceful bridge decorated with figures of angels, nymphs and openwork lanterns in the architectural style of the Beaux Arts. Thrown over the river Seine. After crossing the bridge, you can get from the Champs Elysees to the territory of the House of Disabled. The design was named after the Russian emperor Alexander III to emphasize the proximity of France and Russia in a certain period of time. The bridge was declared a valuable architectural monument in 1975.
Address:Pont Alexandre III, Paris



Wide bridge over the Seine that if crosses moving south heads towards the Eiffel Tower, and if north, Champs Elysees. The bridge is decorated with numerous statues and is in my opinion the most impressive bridge in all of Paris.
This bridge itself is like a museum. Beautiful artworks everywhere from bottom to top. Please pay extra attention to each status or carving on the bridge. They are all different and with its own meaning. You can enjoy the Eiffel Tower at sunset, too,.. Read more »
This bridge is just very pretty, the dark and gold contrast of its decoration is really nice. It has some sculptures on each corner and each end of the bridge. From here you can take some river cruises on the Seine river as well.
Pont Alexandre III is the epitome of Parisian elegance, a bridge that's as much a work of art as it is a functional structure. Spanning the Seine River, it's adorned with ornate lamps, cherubs, nymphs, and gilded sculptures, making it a fea.. Read more »
