The Pont Alexandre III is the most picturesque bridge in Paris, even in low light with rain and dark heavy clouds in the middle of the afternoon! The bridge over the river Seine connects the Grand and Petit Palais as well as the Champs-Elysees quarter on the right bank with the with the Invalides and Eiffel Tower quarter on the left bank. Dedicated in 1900 for the Universal Exposition it was another glorious piece of work introduced to the world at the same time as the Eiffel Tower!
