Pont Alexander III, Paris

One of the nicest ways to spend an afternoon in Paris is by wandering along the Seine. In the 7th arrondissement you'll see one of the grandest bridges in Paris, Pont Alexander III.

The bridge was completed in 1900 as a symbol of the Franco-Russian alliance and is named after Russian Tsar Alexander III.

There are four Fame statues sitting atop giant stone supports almost 60 feet high. Together with the nymphs, cherubs, and lamps, the Pont Alexander III is a spectacular sight, a free open-air museum that is the perfect spot for a photo to remember your trip.
