Its hard to miss this bridge. very beautiful area to stumble upon! (which is very easy to do, central location and around many other attractions) Great place to stop and take a few pictures. The bridge is beautifully designed.

A guy picks up a gold wedding band off the sidewalk in front of us. He tries it on and says it doesn't fit and offers it to us for a "few euros". We told him no. He continued to follow us trying to hand it to me. No deal. Watch out for the con artists on the beautiful Pont... More

There are many bridges along the river Seine and this is by far the greatest with the beautiful golden statues and magnificent architecture. Very close to other major attractions such as the Eiffel Tower, Musee D'orsay and Champs Elysees. Make sure you walk along the rivers edge to admire the bridge from all angles. Great photo ops.

It is the most beautiful bridge in all of Paris and offers the loveliest vistas - particularly on a warm early Summer night! :)

I was so sad our boat tour did not allow us to see the faces of the ladies who adorn both sides of the bridge in the middle. Fantastic art. Fantastic location

This bridge has a rich history. It was built around for the 1900’s World Fair. It symbolizes Russian-French friendship. At the four corners, there are beautiful bronze statues representing the illustrious Arts, Sciences, Commerce and Industry. The bridge is perfectly situated among so many beautiful attractions. It connects the Champs-Élysées, the Invalides, and the Eiffel Tower quarter, so you get... More
