The architecture of this bridge is breathtaking and romance is quite alive here! Every single time we walked across this bridge, we saw at least one couple kissing. So we had to follow suit and had our own romantic kiss on this bridge. The views are amazing!

being there and seeing all the beautiful sculpture that are on the bridge over Seine, is something apart. When is traffic carriages can be seen and admire, also on the river, cross at every 2 minutes boats with tourists that are exited to wave their hands and smile of sharing happiness. from there, great shot can be taken of the...

We especially enjoyed sitting on the steps at the end of the bridge watching the Eiffel Tower light show. In sitting there, we truly got an appreciation for the workmanship that went into the building of this bridge. It is an amazing structure that a single photograph cannot adequately capture.

If you don't feel romantic on this bridge, check your pulse. Gorgeous buildings on both ends with the right bank end leading to the Champs Elysee.

We took a river dinner cruise on the river Seine and this bridge caught our eye! So many bridges on the river but this one was simply majestic. A must see!

Begun in 1896 and completed by1900, the Pont Alexander III bridge was named for Tsar Alexander who helped to lay a cornerstone. From the top level of our double decker hop on hop off tour bus, the unobstructed view of the recently regilded gold covered bronze statues was brilliant in the Paris sun. Connecting the quarter of the Eiffel Tower... More

What can I say? Apart from getting from one side of the Seine to the other, this bridge is really something special. Spectacular sculptures adorne this, the most stunning bridge in Paris. Old style street lamps line either side of the bridge as well. Make sure that you walk across at night to really get the feel for this iconic... More

This bridge looks as good from a distance as it does up close. The golden statues atop the main pillars glow in the sunshine and the other statues which decorate the bridge are equally stunning. Don't miss it/

The bridge was amazing and romantic and offered some beautiful view of Paris lit up at night. We could only imagine Carrie and Mr. Big on this bridge and Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson when it started to snow. We were in Paris: how could we not walk over this bridge ...go there!
