“Great place to see Paris, and the Eiffel Tower”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The bridge is beautifully decorated with gold accents, towers, and sculptures.

The view from the bridge is superb, west along the Seine to the Eiffel Tower, east to Nortre Dame.

On the north bank are the Grand Palais and Petit Palais. Both great museums!

On a sunny day there is hardly a better place to drink in the atmosphere of Paris!

“Beautiful Bridge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Wow, what a piece of art! Beautiful sculptures and details. Tremendous gilt-bronze statues! So impressive, and so extravagant! Where else but Paris would there be such spectacular functional monument.

“Magnificent sculptures, architecture and views of the Seine River!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

If you don't walk across this bridge when visiting Paris, you will miss out on a one of the attractions that is Paris, though not as world known it is just as magnificent as any you will visit! The gold gilded sculptures adorning to the tops of the four main columns are exciting and alive works of art not to be missed and best seen close up. There are candelabra type lamps that align both sides of the bridge and at night make this become one gigantic piece of illuminated artwork. Then looking along the sides of the bridge are more sculptures that give the illusion of this bridge being alive with the architecture's dreams.
The Good: The amazing beauty of the sculptures and the architecture of this bridge.
The Bad: Just be careful of the traffic it is a very busy bridge, with pedestrians and bicycles all looking at the bridge not for people.
The Ugly: there are some people that just have to graffiti or scratch their initials into things.
On the Scuba Bubble scale I give this bridge 8 out of 10 Bubbles.

“Beautiful!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

It is so beautiful. Make sure to walk it! The views from the bridge are magnificent. Just a quick walk to the bridge from Place de la Concorde. Nice way to get from one bank to another.
