Create an itinerary including Pont Alexandre III
Widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in Paris, Pont Alexandre III is an arch bridge spanning the Seine that connects the Champs-Élysées to les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower district. This picturesque bridge, built from 1896 to 1900, features exuberant Art Nouveau lamps and sculptures of cherubs and nymphs at either end. Be sure to look up toward the top of the massive columns to view four gilt-bronze statues of Pegasus held by Fames that watch over the bridge. You'll want to spend an adequate amount of time looking for the hidden images that are carved into the pillars and the arch of the bridge: water spirits, cupids, sea monsters, and more. Our Paris online trip planner makes visiting Pont Alexandre III and other Paris attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

  • Stunning architecture on this bridge, with wonderful sights of the eiffle tower, grand palais and petit palais (petit palais is free entry). Worth a visit on your way to either sites.

  • Enjoyed walking across, below and along this bridge. Plenty of opportunity for pepe watching and walking down the stairs to the promenade next to the Seine is good too.

  • Stunning bridge with beautiful lampposts down either side. Great views over the river siene and a lovely view of the Eiffel Tower in the distance. This is a great photo spot.
  • The best architecture all around. This bridge has amazing architecture on every inch and detail. During sunset this place looks even more amazing with a view to Eiffel tower and Seine river
