Pont Alexandre III has to be my favourite bridge spanning the Seine. The first bridge to span the Seine in one arch this is truly a breakthrough and one to be admired. With the classic lanterns that can be seen in so many films this is certainly a must stop whilst in Paris. Great views can be achieved from Pont... More

Got to be the most beautiful bridge in Paris, if not the world. Paris needs the visitors back, don't let this beauty go unseen

Loved the place and surroundings. Individual monuments add more valve to it. Heaps of people are asking for money or come to sell souveniers, bit annoying. Bit worried about the litterring around. Hope people will take care!

This is an excellent point to view the Seine. It is probably the best point from which to take a boat tour of the Seine which gives one a different perspective of Paris. I would highly recommend the boat tour.

Pont Alexandre III is a startlingly beautiful bridge. It is anchored on the North (right bank) by the Grand Palais and Petit Palis, and on the South (left bank) by the Invalides complex. Beautiful views of the city from the bridge, no matter which way you look. Stroll across the bridge, stop often to soak in the view, and then... More

Good place to visit and you can enjoy also the view of the lovely river. You also reach the Invalides which is a few minutes away.

The bridge is the best in the city and the best place to cross the Seine if you want to cross at a place worth checking out in and of itself. It really is worth checking out. Be sure to spend a few moments checking out the statues.
