I must be missing something. The Pont Alexandre III is basically a road intersection next to a major bridge over the Seine, marked by 2 large 'monuments', topped by gold colored statues. Very visible, memorable, a great landmark, but not much of an attraction by itself. Proximate to the Eiffel Tour, and some wonderful shopping and museums.

This is a spectacle for Paris indeed with the use of real gold to top it all off. No expense spared here when building this amazing landmark in this city. It really sets the tone for the modern area of Paris.

This is our four trip to Paris, and this Pont never disappoints. We can sit there and enjoy wine and cheeses for hours. This time we brought our own boat to Paris, and passing underneath it was a bucket list check-off.

The Pont Alexandre IIi has to be a major focal point in any visit to Paris. Being just off the Champs Elysees and past the Grand Palais it lends itself to the experience of being the heart and soul of Paris. With the glowing golden statues and view of the Eiffel Tower one knows that one is in one of... More

I suppose this is the most ornate bridges in Paris. It is a different style and built in a different period than some of the other bridges. Very beautiful and ornate. The bridge just glistens as the sun is setting. Located in a wonderful area of Paris. But of course,, aren't all area of Paris wonderful.

Absolutely beautiful bridge in a gorgeous city! Lovely if you walk over it late afternoon, or really early morning. Less people about and lovely light for photography. Not to be missed.
