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.

  • Walking along the Seine from Les Invalides Invalides bridge. It is not what decorations onto the bridge compared to the ornate Alexandre III bridge next to the ordinary bridge. See various bridge and walk along the Seine River, is interesting.

  • Very convenient to the bus tour to go in those places. which you want to view. Love the story and the "little corporal" is it not a small place. So purposefully went to see the tomb of Napoleon. Take the time before you go to France, learn its history, or at least those places you plan to visit. Perception is quite another. I won't retell, read for yourself what is the sarcophagus, which is devoted to each column that surrounds it. And the stupid phrase that we us it didn't win. And why. rarely will ask. ... When Napoleon had planned to capture Egypt, he brought together scientists, doctors, historians m so to explore the country. Read more about this person, and I assure you, breathless from visiting this place. I got out of there with tears and besides the phrase "brain stem" nothing she could say ...

  • LCD TVs and an ornate and quietly look for Alexander 3 bridge next to the look. I think to explore from a distance and cruise ships crossing the bridge of the ordinary, so would be better.

  • Nice bridge, able to see the river and Wife Tower from here. Come get your wedding pictures here!
  • people can easily cross the river from Palais de la Découverte to Eiffel Tower. also they can enjoy a nice walk.
  • 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.
  • 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.
