Pont des Invalides, Paris

#67 of 294 in Sightseeing in Paris
Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • More than a bridge, a work of art. Paris is a treat for lovers of art and engineering. The bridge is of the 19th century and until today serves the city with a heavy traffic of vehicles circulating for her. The most beautiful, in addition to their bows, safe the statues that are on the sides of the bridge.

  • Bridge and walked through with a Seine River cruise. This bridge was first is front of the Invalides, built between Pont Alexandre III where there is currently planned. Victory land's Pier was decorated with allegorical statues (upstream): victory of the Sea (downstream). Stone statue of was cool stuff as decoration.

  • Pont des Invalides sited in between the Pont de l’Alma and the Pont Alexandre III. From this lovely bridge, you will able to view the river and Eiffel Tower. Several tourist attractions like the Grand Palais, the Palais de la Decouverte science museum, Les Invalides and many more are in walking distances from this lowest bridge over 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.
  • Some of best views in the city.
  • Nice bridge, able to see the river and Wife Tower from here. Come get your wedding pictures here!
  • Gorgeous bridge!

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
