    A Wonderful Location
    A very ornate, artistic and majestic bridge crossing The River Seine. It truly is a work of art and it really is a pleasure walking across the Seine. You get some wonderful views. Please make some time to come to this location when in Paris.

    Our favorite Paris bridge with ornate and extravagant sculptures and monuments
    This is by far our favorite bridge to visit in Paris. We always come to visit this "old friend" when we are in Paris. It is grand, with many stunning sculptures and monuments. Location is superb too. You can get to the Champs-Élysées quarter, the Invalides and view of Eiffel Tower from the bridge. It is so photogenic. We walk down to the river Seine level to see it on both sides. Depending the time of day, you need to walk around to get the best "side"

    Eye Candy Bridge
    Beautiful bridge. My hubby and I walked along the Seine River from the Eiffel Tower to the Louvre. The Pont Alexandre III is the most decorative bridge of the many we viewed. The statuary on both sides and the architecture of the bridge itself is beautiful. I think it is best to view it from off the bridge. Look at it and the statues from a variety of locations and distances. I hear one should also try to view it at different times of day.

    Gorgeous Bridge, Great Views
    The Alexander III bridge is remarkable. It is a work of art and I was very impressed. Many people say it is Paris’s most beautiful bridge and they may be correct. There are also views of the Seine, with the Louvre in the distance but also the Hotel Invalides and the Grand Palau’s. There is even a decent view of the Eiffel Tower. They were doing repairs when I was there and so we didn’t get to experience the full thing but that’s okay.

    Grand brindle in the city of lights
    If you are walking along the Seine between the Grand Palice and the Louvre it is hard to miss. A very spectacular piece of architecture. Also the perfect place to grab pictures at sunset. It is in my opinion the prettiest bridge of a city with many bridges

    Don’t miss it
    Somehow having missed this bridge on previous visits, we made a point to visit it this time around and I am glad that we did The bridge itself is very beautiful and offers great vistas over Seine. However the best part is after sunset when the bridge lights up and you can see lighted Eiffel as well from it. Worth visiting just for it even if you are not fan of architecture or history

    Lavish and opulent
    This monumental bridge is a marvel to behold, with its grandiose design, intricate sculptures, and ornate lamps. If you're lucky, you might even spot a few of the local swans swimming about! A visit to this bridge is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience.

    A glittering grandeur
    My recent visit to Pont Alexandre-III Paris was nothing short of majestic. From its ornate facades to its lavish decorations, it had me feeling like royalty! I couldn't help but marvel at the sheer grandeur of it all. I'm sure it's a sight to behold even for the most jaded of travelers. I'm glad I made the trip!

    The Most Ornate Bridge
    The most ornate bridge in Paris. We saw it from a river cruise, but I have also walked across. It was decorated for a big exposition and the lovely decorations, sculptures and lighting, remain to entertain us. Take a slow walk to admire it. You will also be in the midst of cultural institutions.

A beautiful bridge, rain or shine. On overcast days the gold stands out even more. Ample photo opportunities. If you’re only going to visit one bridge, make this that one

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.

on my walk around Paris. It has the most ornate (gilt ?) sculptures at both ends high on pillars. Top views across the Seine to Eiffel and Petit Palais.
