This magnificent Belle Epoque bridge is the one to see of all the bridges that traverse the Seine. It been featured in so many movies but most memorably in that great bio-movie, on the tragic life of painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Le Moulin Rouge.

The most outstanding and elaborate bridge spanning the Seine. The Pont Alexandre III was built between 1897 and 1900 at the same time as the Grand Palais.

Good looking bridge, but just a bridge. True, is placed between some good touristic attractions, we went on foot around it and it was a nice walk. You can overlook the passing tour boats over de Seine and have a nice view of the sunset and the Eifell tower at the same time.

The bridge was extremely decorative but still sublime and noble and was fully presenting the dignity of the dynasty.

This point shouldn't be missed. It will actually be hard to miss it during your visit as it is a crossover bridge used between several tourist spots.

One of the most beautiful bridges I've ever seen! It is a symbol of friendship between Russia and France and also has a symbol of St. Petersburg on it what is very interesting for people not familiar with Russia.
