This is the most photographed bridge I would say, and it's not even the longest in the world. Flanked by statues and across the famous River Seine, this bridge is best viewed at night or from below, meaning you get yourself onto a river trip and view it while sitting and sailing below it. Breathtaking.

We did two river tours and one bus tour and this was one of the places we drove past. It's really nice, but not being on foot I don't have much else on this place.

I understand that this is a landmark in Paris, but really, it's just another bridge. Worth taking a stroll across, and snapping a couple photos of, but beyond that there isn't much else to do. When compared to other famous bridges, like Prague's Charles Bridge, this is absolutely nothing special. I give it a three because it's still a lovely... More

Impressive bridge, best viewed at night when lights are lit up. You can view the Champs-Élysées on the way there) preferably at night when lights are on). Below is a wonderful meeting place for mainly young Parisians with some snacks and beer or wine. People Also bring a blanket to sit on from home and their own food and snacks... More

You can definitely spend some time here because you get beautiful views of the Siene and can watch the boats go by. We got to see a wedding shoot happening here. So clearly its very picturesque

We got to the bridge quite early in the morning and were rewarded with some fantastic photo opportunities (some newlyweds had the same idea for their wedding photos). In a city famous for it's ancient, beautiful, graceful bridges, this one is easily the most beautiful with it's statues, ornate lights, and graceful design. There is always traffic on it, but...

This is not a destination by itself, but as you explore the broader area, you can visit. I think it is best seen from a boat tour though!
