Pont Alexandre III Bridge, Paris (France)

The Pont Alexandre III in Paris is considered as the most extravagant, grandiose, ornate bridge in Paris, built over the Seine River. It is not only one of the famous tourist attractions in Paris but also one of the most charming river-crossing bridges in the world. Also classified as a French Monument Historique, the flamboyant deck arch bridge connects the Champs-Élysées with both the tomb of Napoleon at Invalides and the Eiffel Tower, present on the other side of the river.

History of Pont Alexandre III

The Pont Alexandre III Bridge is named after Tsar Alexander III, the concluder of the Franco-Russian Alliance in the year 1892. Designed by Joseph Cassien-Bernard (fr) and Gaston Cousin, the bridge was built by the engineers Jean Résal and Amédée d'Alby (fr). While the foundation stone of the bridge was laid in October 1896 by his son Nicholas II, the construction of the bridge took place between the years 1896 and 1900. It was inaugurated along with neighbors, the Grand Palais and Petit Palais at the Exposition Universelle, a World exhibition held in 1900.

Architecture of Pont Alexandre III

The bridge is an architectural gem from the 19th century. It comprises of a 6 metre (20 feet) high single steel arch, which boasts of the blend of Beaux-Arts and Nouveau-Arts style, bringing alive the essence of that era. The bridge is decorated by animated Nouveau-Art lamps, fames, nymphs, cherubs, lions and winged Pegasus horses at either end of the bridge. On each of its base, sits an allegorical sculpture that represents France in different eras.

The Gilt-bronze Fames of Pont Alexandre III

There are four fames aka gilt-bronze statues, two at each edge, which offer stabilizing counterweight to the bridge arc. While the fames on the Right Bank are Renommée des Sciences and the Renommée des Arts, those on the Left Bank comprise of Renommée du Commerce and Renommée de l'Industrie. They are supported by masonry socles 17 metres (56 feet) in height and bring the winged horse Pegasus to heel.

Nymphs Reliefs of Pont Alexandre III

There are Nymph reliefs, present at the centres of the arches over the river, which form the memorials to the famous Franco-Russian Alliance. While the Nymphs of the Seine has a relief depicting the arms of France, the Nymphs of the Neva depicts the arms of Imperial Russia. Both the Nymphs are facing each other.

While reflecting the style of the Grand Palais, the bridge was smartly designed in a way that it doesn’t block the view of both Invalides and Champs-Élysées

The movie connection of Pont Alexandre III

Pont Alexandre III has been the favourite location of filmmakers and cinematographers as scenes of many films as well as music videos have been shoot on the bridge.

A Romantic Spot and Wedding Photography

Bringing alive the exuberant era of the 19th century, Pont Alexandre III serves one of the bustling romantic spots. The bridge is also famous for Wedding photo shoots.

      We had a really great experience with them. Planned our anniversay trip to Bali this year and the services were exceptional. Though the request was on a short notice, our travel organiser Rishabh was very helpful in getting us the best price possible. They have offered us a customized tour package and was patient enough to take our last minute requests. Have been associated with Rishabh since 4 years and he plans all of our trips exceptionally well. Would highly recommend.

      My tour of Munich, Vienna, Paris, Brussels and Amsterdam was very well organized by Memorable Vacations Holidays. They took care of all the hotel, flight and train bookings including all the pickups. The sight-seeing which they had arranged was also very good. In this regard, I would like to express my gratitude for all the help extended by Pratik and everyone else at Memorable Vacations. They were always there to help me out during the entire journey starting from the initial planning until the very end of the tour.

    • Trip to Switzerland

      Hi, Thanks for helping us in arranging for this memorable and wonderful trip. Kudos to Siddharth from Bollywood Holidays for taking care of everything. He was in continuous touch while we were traveling, reminding us on booked tours and trips. :) There are few points we could like to highlight for making the same itinerary better : 1. We were not communicated that Jungfrau voucher needs to be exchanged for ticket in Interlaken. This created confusion and we had to pay 10eur for the same to exchange the pass with train ticket. FYI Swiss pass is applicable only till Wengen and one has to buy train tickets if they are traveling beyond Wengen, i.e. going to Jungfrau, if they haven't exchanged voucher with tickets in Interlaken Ost. 2. Though we requested to stay at Wengen for 4 nights, but we could have shifted to Zurich one night before. We initially asked if there was a direct train from Wengen to Innsbruck, but that was not the case and we end up changing trains 4 times before reaching Innsbruck. Shifted to Zurich one day before could have saved some time for us. This is a suggestion for next trip Bollywood Holidays plans. 3 . We need to buy ticket from Wengen to Interlaken on 6 june, as per the initial plan when we booked the trip, all travel was covered. 4. We felt that Austria time should have been cut short. Though we asked for 11 day plan, providing suggestion, like there is not much you could do & can think of shorting the trip or you can cover one more country, helps both party. 5. Sound of music tour was not worth the time and money. FYI for next trip you guys are planning. Only if one is hardcore fan of the movie, they will enjoy it. Though online reviews are it's good even if you decently like the movie as it covers the city outshirts..that was definitely not the case. 6. Rather than booking 2 city tours in Innsbruck, it was better to take city pass. This suggestion should have came from Agent. We realized that city pass is a better option for Innsbruck & Salzburg after reaching cities. 7. All major tourist places closes at 5 PM. So it's better to book a train which starts such that we get the full day at one place before 5PM, if possible. This is again a feedback to make the experience better for the travellers. Jungfrau excursion, trek to Murren, cafes in Interlaken, trummelbach fall in lautebrunnen.

      Shashank from I need trip travels was extremely responsive and had organised a major portion of our trip to Paris and Switzerland in an excellent manner. He was extremely approachable and helpful in case we faced any issues during our trip....there were one or two instances in which the proper tickets and vouchers were not provided...however he sorted out the issues effectively...we would recommend Travel Triangle and I Need Trip Travels for travel to Europe Eiffel Tower, Cruise on River Seine in Paris and Mount Titlis in Switzerland were worth a visit
