The Eiffel Tower and 8 Stunning Paris Bridges

When you accidentally saw your first glance of the Eiffel Tower, your heart skipped a beat. As you were walking towards the tower, you were anticipating, and as you got closer to the tower, you had to convince yourself that you really were in Paris. When you took in the view of Paris with the tower from the top of the city, you were satisfied yet you still wanted to see more . . . both nearer and further, so what about somewhere in between, especially views that include the River Seine and Paris bridges as well?

Paris is a centre of the arts and you can find art everywhere. The bridges in Paris are famously beautiful and rich in history. Viewing the Eiffel Tower with the Seine and some of these marvelous bridges in the view will be an extraordinary experience.

Let’s walk upstream along the Seine towards the Eiffel Tower from the Pont Mirabeau in the 15th arrondissement to the Pont de la Concorde, the farthest bridge from which you can see the Eiffel Tower clearly.

Eiffel Tower and Pont de Grenelle

When you view the Eiffel Tower from the Pont Mirabeau looking upstream, the bridge in front of the Eiffel Tower that you see is the Pont de Grenelle. You may even vaguely see the arch of the Pont Rouelle which is upstream of the Pont de Grenelle.

Eiffel Tower and Passerelle Debilly

The Passerelle Debilly which is upstream of the Pont d’Iéna is still very close to the tower, so you will be able to view both the Eiffel Tower and the beautiful Passerelle Debilly from the vicinity of the bridge itself.

There you have it, 8 stunning Paris bridges with the marvelous Eiffel Tower by their side or in the background, but you can view the Tower from 10 Paris bridges. Paris bridges are all artistically beautiful, but these are only the ones where you get to see the Eiffel Tower when you are taking a picture of the bridge. The River Seine adds the magic of moving water to the images making them even more perfect.

There are different kinds of artists. Some are more focused and others are more all-encompassing. I would count myself as the art-everywhere type of artist. To me, art is a way of looking at things, of applying creativity in my life.

I am a frequent traveler who truly appreciates every tiny beauty of life and have traveled extensively around the world. Different cities inspire me in different ways.

My passion is Paris which I have visited more than once, living as a Parisian. I have walked big streets and small alleys in Paris, and every inch of the city has given me inspiration.

When I first arrived in Paris it was as though all my senses were heightened, then as I became familiar with the city I learned to see subtleties that I missed at first.

  1. Beautiful photos!

    Mademoiselle remains splendid from all angles and perspectives.

    The fact that you can see the Tower from almost every coin of a city (I adore how her top looks next to the Montparnasse when you’re in Luxembourg park 🙂 makes you appreciate it even more once you get right in front of her – it is only than that you realize that she just has to be everywhere you look because she is so huge 🙂

    1. Yes, you are right.
      Every person not knowing Paris that I brought had the same feeling.
      When you see it almost everyday, you forget easily how big she is. And that’s exactly what the persons are telling me.
      “oh! but, that’s huge!”

  2. No matter how you perceive it but the location of these amazing bridges coupled together with the Eiffel Tower in view is absolutely divine. I did not know the names of the bridges. Thank you for providing such a fantastic storyline along with gorgeous photos.
    One word that best describes the architecture of Paris is – crafty! 🙂

  3. The Eiffel Tower is just gorgeous! Its splendid beauty will always stand out delighting you. The Sein match perfectly with it; and from every bridge that you look at it, you will have in front of you a piece of art. If you are in Paris just keep your eyes wide open because every look is perfect a painting.
