Paris is spoilt for choice when it comes to bridges but Pont Alexandre III deserves a special mention. This intricate arch bridge is regarded as one of the most stunning in Paris and crosses the Seine, connecting the Champs- Élysées quarter and the Invalides and Eiffel Tower quarter.
Built around 1900, highlights of the bridge include the ornate art nouveau lamps, detailed cherubs, nymphs and guilded winged horses. You can get a great view of the bridge from a boat cruise, the top of the Eiffel Tower or as it is a very convenient place to cross between sights it is worth the walk. From the bridge you can see the Seine, Eiffel Tower and the Grand Palais which is on the right bank. It is also worth checking out in the evening when the decorative lamps light up the bridge and highlight the guilded statues.
