Searching for a shortcut to cross the Seine and return to our hotel, we discovered THE bridge. It's very ornate with bronze statues of sea nymphs that attracted my camera like magnets. There are golden rearing horses at each side and end of the bridge....More

Take a picture, keep moving to other museums. It is a beautiful and historical bridge. As one walks around Paris, one will eventually pass this bridge. So, do not make special plans just to come to the bridge. Recommended five to ten minutes for this...More

Beautiful place to take pictures whether you are walking or boating. Take pictures of the river and boats passing by or simply the bridge itself. Most importantly there is no entrance fee. Places near by: Grand Palais, Petit Palais, Esplanade de Invalides, National Galleries, and...More

The Architecture in Paris is absolutely stunning including this bridge. People say there is not much to see in Paris it’s a lie.... Every little road, building, monument is just something worth taking a pic!

This is a beautiful bridge which I learnt was a gift from Russia to France. The pillars (not sure if vocabulary is correct) with the gold statues adds a certain light to the bridge. The fact that it runs perpendicular to the Champs Elysee could...More

Pont Alexandre III is one of the pretty bridge in Paris that offers many photo opportunities there both in day time or by night. Highly recommended.

On a beautiful Fall day and, after some intense "Art" exposure at Musée Rodin, there is no better place to be than sitting on a floating bar and looking up and along the magnificent Pont Alexandre III. Just watching the river traffic and taking in...More

Most beautiful bridge in paris, offering from tsar Alexander 3. Well decorated . Sometimes there is clubbing in one of the bridge pile.

The bridge is right in the middle of the tourist area between Les Invalides and the Grand Palais. Worth a visit as it is a good spot to take photos.

The Art Nouveau bridge built for the Universal Exposition of 1900 is a space of much variety. The gold Fames atop the four towers that balance the arch glisten against the blue sky. The heavy decoration at the center is elabourate and decorated with gold...More

I do believe there is a river boat restaurant underneath. But there are none near the bridge itself. Not a place to have a meal anyway - too busy and noisy with traffic.
