    On our way to the Arc de Triomphe we crossed the Pont Alexandre III, the Alexandre III bridge. This bridge is widely regarded as the most ornate, extravagant bridge in the city and it certainly is. I don't know if you can call bridges beautiful but that word describes this bridge perfectly.

    The bridge is decorated with exuberant Art Nouveau lamps, cherubs, nymphs and winged horses at either end, and was built between 1896 and 1900. It is named after Tsar Alexander III, who had concluded the Franco-Russian Alliance in 1892.

    We also got some pretty great views of the Eiffel Tower from here and of course I had to take a few more photos of the famous Paris icon.
