This bridge takes you straight to the Petit and the Grand Palais, but it's worth lingering there to see the grand and glorious statues and the beautiful view over the Seine. It's an icon for good reason: don't miss it. And it's just as lovely by night as by day.

It's a bridge across one of the most famous rivers in the world, and what a bridge. You can't do much with it apart from look at it take pictures of it and walk across it but it is definitely worth seeing

This is the second time that I have walked across this bridge (the first was in 2006). I have walked across many bridges over the years (the Charles bridge in Prague, the chain bridge in Budapest, the Tower Bridge in London, the Harbour bridge in Sydney, the Luis bridge in Porto, the Mostar bridge in Bosnia). This one is my... More

Nice for a photo op, but it is just another lovely ornate bridge, which Paris has in abundance. We rented the bikes and rode over here on our way to the Louvre, be careful of the pickpockets that loiter in this area.

The construction of the bridge is a marvel of 19th century engineering, consisting of a 6m high single span steel arch. The design was subject to strict controls that prevented the bridge from obscuring the view of the Champs-Élysées or the Invalides The Pont Alexandre III is one of the most beautiful bridges of Paris. It was finished in 1900... More

One of the 'must see' attractions - just a stone's throw from Invalides Metro. Take the steps down to the Seine and enjoy a beer at the cafe facing the bridge. It's worth £8 a pint for the view!

This is truly an iconic bridge that reveals the stunning beauty of that is Paris. A visually breathtaking monument that crosses the Seine. It is an amazing frame to the various buildings and monument in the area. Don't miss.

It's the most "elegant" bridge in Paris. Very well decorated, a "must seeing". It was opened for the 1900 Universal Exhibition.

Great view of the Eiffel Tower and the River Seine. Also centrally located. The 'golden' embellishments give this bridge a very historical feel. On the other hand, it's a bridge. So don't expect more than taking that nice picture, taking in the Seine and enjoying views. The Princess Diana monument is on the North Side (Flame).

We had to walk across this bridge to visit the Hotel des Invalides. There was a wedding couple being photographed. We would have enjoyed this walk but were disappointed that a con artist approached us with the "found ring" scam. It's a shame that tourists have to be subjected to this.
