“A beautiful view of the central arch by river boat”
Reviewed 16 January 2014

It's truly unique because of the viaduct on the 2nd level that's lined with street lanterns. By river boat, you can get a beautiful view of the "La France renaissante" statue as well as the sculpted ornamentation and reliefs of the central arch. It's an even better sight when the lit up Paris Métro train passes over at night.

“Quite Simply one of the best bridges”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

This is my favourite bridge in Paris and is famously seen in many movies from Hollywood, recently Inception it is seen as the location for the "mirror" scene. A great spot for some wonderful photos.

“Great lines,fabulous outlook with statuary commemorating a great battle”
Reviewed 5 October 2013

Want to cross the Seine on a train between the 15th and 16th arrondissement and pass through Ile aux Cygres,a small artificial island which is treelined.
This pont is solid steel with two levels,one for vehicles and pedestrians and a viaduct above,through which passes Line 6 of the Paris Metro. Metal colonnades support the viaduct with many commemorative plates decorating the viaduct bridge,several dedicated to soldiers that fell in Belgium during WWII.
But wait,there is more! The central arch,at the level of the island,is decorated with monumental stone statues figures of Science,Labor,Electricity and Commerce projecting from the background.
If you are wondering where the name comes from.... it commemorates a battle fought by Free French forces against the Africa Korps in 1942.
Remember 'Last tango in Paris',Inception and Zazie dans le Metro?.... they featured the bridge. Check these movies just for the thrill of seeing the Pont.
