Pont Alexandre I I I - Review
The foundation stone for this beautiful, extravagant and ornate bridge laid in 1896 by the man who would go on to become the last Tsar of Russia, Emperor Nicolas II;the bridge is named after his father, who concluded the Franco-Russian Alliance in 1892. For over a hundred years, the beauty of this bridge has captured the hearts of artists, photographers, filmmakers, and songwriters.The inspiring romance of this bridge was hard achieved: the architects were under strict orders that under no circumstances should the Champs-Elysees or the Invalides be obscured. As such, the techniques used in its creation are something of a 19th Century engineering wonder. The Bridge features prominent in several videos ranging from James Bond Movies to Adele music videos.

Pont Alexandre I I I, Paris Reviews
This bridge is really breathtaking and amazing to look at. In nights its even more beautiful.
Great place for first dates or else so many people seating around and people walk by and sell wine, cigarettes,... Definitely recommend to just seat and chill
This happened to be our first bridge to stumble upon and it is our favorite. Everything is so ornate on this bridge, it is absolutely gorgeous. Later that night, we took a cruise on the seine and got pictures from another viewpoint. This is a lovely place for pictures off the Champs Elysees, and should not be missed.
Very Good and beautiful bridge. Best view is from boat which allows you to have full landscape view of the bridge. In night the bridge is fully illuminated and look glorious
Gorgeous landmark a symbol of French-Russian alliance, named after Russian Tsar Alexandre Ill. Timeless reminder of previous times. Feels like walking through history while admiring magnificently ornamented masterpiece with golden statues. Nice picturesque view on Paris with Eiffel Tower on back ground while enjoying endless views of river Seine. Breathtaking at sunset taking in beautiful Paris scenery. Many beautiful bridges in Paris, Alexandre Ill the most memorable and beautiful. Long strolling at sunset creates romantic memories from city of L❤️VE.
