    The most beautiful parisian bridge in my point of view with its golden oversized statues and views on the tour Eiffel.

    5 minutes from our studio. The Pont Alexandre III is an arch bridge that spans the Seine, connecting the Champs-Élysées quarter and the Invalides and Eiffel Tower quarter, widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in Paris. Popular wedding photo spot!

    The Pont Alexander III is one of the most opulent bridges in Paris, connecting the Champs-Elysees with the Eiffel Tower quarter. Along the bridge, there are statutes of nymphs, and it has fancy lamps decorated in an Art Noveau style. It's definitely one of my favorite bridges in Paris and a wonder to cross.

    Known as the most beautiful bridge in Paris and it is beautiful! Unfortunately I posted the wrong picture and then accidentally delected the picture I had. Oooops! Well I guess you'll just have to take my word for it and go visit to see the beauty for yourself!

    Ahhhh! Picture updated!

    I was absolutely dying to see this bridge and it lived up to my many expectations. A joy to photograph, the bridge is adorned with all sorts of sculptures and details, from mermen to flowers, to angels.

    This is the Marilyn Monroe of bridges in my opinion. Classic, classy and an all around favorite.

    The Pont Alexandre III (Alexander III Bridge) is Paris's most elegant bridge, ornamented with fine sculpture work, adding its own charm to an already beautiful site.It also owes its fame to the technical prowess that went into its construction. It is made of a single leaf arch that spans the Seine in a great curve, although it is lowered so as not to obstruct the view of the Champs-Elysées or les Invalides. Built in only two years by the engineers Résal and Alby, the first stone was placed by Tsar Nicholas II, although the structure was opened at the 1900 Universal Exhibition. Critics of the time explained the heterogeneous character of the "Exhibition Bridge" by the fact that there were as many artists as there were ornaments. Amongst the decoration are four 17 metre high corner pillars, bearing the four gilded bronze equestrian groups which represent Pegasus held by Fame.

    Juste parce qu'y a eu un petit concert de Tokio Hotel ici, auquel j'ai été, évidement. Et que voilà quoi, j'peux que aimer ce genre d'endroit ! x)

    パリのセーヌにかかる一番派手は橋ですが、Invalidesに続く道にかかっているのもあり、好きな橋のひとつです。

Description:

One of the most beautiful bridges in Gay Paree, the Pont Alexandre III is a stunning art nouveau creation named for the Russian czar that ceremoniously laid the first stone. It’s adorned by four golden sculptures of Art, Commerce, Industry and the Sciences, and itself adorned the 2011 film Midnight in Paris.
