Of all the bridges over the Seine River the Alexandre III - running from the Hôtel des Invalides across the river to the Grand Palais, Petit Palais and Champs Elysées - is by far the prettiest.
Pont Alexandre III was built in 1900 in ornate Art Nouveau style and named after Alexander III of Russia who laid the foundation stone.
The Grand Palais sports the glass dome on the left and the Petit Palais is on the right, opposite Le Grand.
Petit Palais, another fine art museum.
Part of the front of the glass-domed Grand Palais, a major art exhibition showcase. Next, Bikes, Blades and Boats.
