Pont Alexandre III
The Pont Alexandre III is a deck arch bridge that spans the Seine in Paris. It connects the Champs-Élysées quarter with those of the Invalides and Eiffel Tower. You can have a nice pictures with the Eiffel Tower. Additionally, you can see the Eiffel Tower from the different sides.
Walking from Grand Palais to Invalides through Alexandre III bridge is to me walking through the quintessial idea of Paris.
This bridge is a magnetic 🧲for lovers to enjoy walk thru it and see the Eiffel tower.
“As all the royal squares, the Place de la Concorde knew many different names according to the political upheavals. First called Place Louis XV, it will become a symbol of the French Revolution as many people were guillotined there, including King Louis XVI and Queen Marie-Antoinette. This monumental square is one of the finest example of French classicism in the Age of Enlightenment. In the center, the statue of Louis XV was destroyed and replaced by the current obelisk offered by the Viceroy of Egypt in 1832. Located between the Champs-Elysées, the Tuileries Gardens, the Louvre and the Madeleine, Place de la Concorde and its surroundings are among the most beautiful areas of Paris.”
“The Grand Palais des Champs-Élysées is a large historic site, exhibition hall and museum complex located at the Champs-Élysées. You can see the Hôtel national des Invalides (The National Residence of the Invalids), The Pont Alexandre III and the Eiffel tower. It's an outstanding place to meet sunset while having a picnic or dinner close to Seine River.”
“The Petit Palais is an architectural gem dating back to 1900, situated on the avenue des Champs-Elysées. The building, which like the Grand Palais opposite it, was built for the Universal Exposition and houses the Musée des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris. The 1,300 works in the museum (sculptures, paintings, tapestries, art objects, icons) offer a large artistic panorama. Ancient and Medieval collections are displayed alongside works from the French and Italian Renaissance and Flemish and Dutch paintings. Visitors can discover a collection of paintings from major French artists of the 19th century: Delacroix, Monet, Sisley, Renoir, Toulouse-Lautrec, Courbet, etc. A small inner outdoor garden, which you can stroll around, adds to the charm of the establishment.”
“A restaurant and truffle specialty shop, Truffes Folies is the palace for truffles. The restaurant incorporates truffles into its recipes, and the shelves of its gourmet shop are filled floor to ceiling with products showcasing this coveted mushroom. By tasting a truffle you take part in history: the Pharoahs enjoyed eating truffles, and the first truffle in France made its appearance on the plate of King Francis I.”
“Descend on the old lanes on the banks of the Quai Branly, you will be able to go on foot and in a 100% pedestrian area of the Eiffel Tower to the Musée d'Orsay. Ideal for a walk, roller-skating, etc.”
