Francophile Friday : Pont Alexandre III View and Bicycle for Two


Pont Alexandre III Paris View and Bicycle for Two illustration © Shell Sherree all rights reserved

If you need incentive to dust off your pushbike, there's nothing like a Paris view!

Today's illustration sees our intrepid travellers Maggie and Marcel on a flower-laden quest for baguettes, framed by the gorgeous Pont Alexandre III.  

Named after Tsar Alexandre III, this beautifully ornate deck arch bridge is both an artistic and engineering masterpiece, with a single span steel arch measuring six metres high.  Its design had to ensure neither the Invalides nor Champs-Élysées was obscured.  Featured in many movies (who wouldn't want an excuse to film there?!) this beauty is a 'must-see', connecting the neighbourhoods of les Invalides and the Eiffel Tower with the Champs-Élysées.  Best enjoyed with a furry friend or two!  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!
