Pont des Invalides, Paris

(4.3/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Although Pont des Invalides is most commonly known as the lowest bridge traversing the Seine, it holds historical significance as well. When you visit this site, be sure to learn its story, which starts in 1821 with Claude Navier. Navier once imagined a revolutionary bridge that crossed the Seine in one single reach, without any point of support in between. Due to cracks in some parts of the bridge and gradual settling, the project was abandoned before the bridge even made it into service.

  • Built between 1854 and 1856, he faces the Grand Palais, the Avenue Franklin Roosevelt. It presents on each side of the sculptures and coats of arms. Like the other bridges that cross the Seine, it has a length of about 150 metres. Located beside the Alexandre III bridge, he can not compete... Come by metro, station "Franklin Roosevelt".

  • More beautiful and elegant bridge in Paris. We admired during the trip of the boat on the Seine. Fantastic.

  • Very fine bridge leading to the Dome of the Invalides, as well as the bridge Alexandre III; Very beautiful architecture, rich decorations, beautiful views on the Esplanade of the Invalides, but also on the River, the Seine.

  • A nice walk to or from the Eiffel Tower, This will give you an interesting taste of French military history. We were surprised how many times we had seen this bridge in old pictures and films without knowing where it was. The Pont des Invalides is a great place to enjoy the fabulous panoramic view of the Eiffel Tower and the perspective view of the Seine is quite stunning.
  • Nice bridge, able to see the river and Wife Tower from here. Come get your wedding pictures here!
  • No matter where you go in paris, you'll stumble upon even the simplest of things made incredible by detail. This bridge is no different. No special trips are needed to see so many of these beautiful things while your in Paris, as so many cross paths with somewhere you intend to go. Do as I did, take an evening to walk up the Siene River and you will easily hit 10 things you wanted to see
  • I really appreciate when utilitarian things like bridges are used for art, as it adds immensely to the overall atmosphere of the location. The sculptures on the side of the bridge are wonderful.
  • people can easily cross the river from Palais de la Découverte to Eiffel Tower. also they can enjoy a nice walk.
