Awesome view, check out the market along the river below the bridge. Keep your hands in your pockets because there are a ton of gypsies nearby.

This is a great bridge to do wedding photos , not very crowded and quite spacious. The bridge itself is beautiful with its lovely architecture, preserved in all it's glory. We had our wedding photos taken here by our photographer Pierre. Who says Parisienne's are snobs, everyone hoots and shouts out greetings and wishes, people stop and wish you.

Great bridge in all of its majestic splendor. It fits in Paris while it would be too much anywhere else. You know Paris is over the top. It doesn't get any better than this.

Some may consider Pont Alexandre III as simply a bridge, but I felt that it is more than that - it is about as artistic
