Often considered the most beautiful bridge in Paris
Pont Alexandre III was built at the end of the 19th Century and is often considered the most beautiful bridge in Paris. It was built for the Universal Exposition of 1900, a Parisian world fair that celebrated the past 100 years of accomplishments and was also meant to accelerate development into the next century.
The Pont Alexandre III Bridge connects the Grand and Petit Palais on the right bank with the Hotel de Invalides on the left bank, and made it easy for the exposition visitors to easily cross the Seine River. Almost three years of construction resulted in a lavishly adorned 40m wide, 6m tall bridge that would not obstruct the view of the Invalides or the Champs-Elysees.
