The Pont Alexandre III is an arch bridge and historical monument that spans the Seine river in Paris, France. On one side of the bridge is Le Septième (7th arrondissement or quarter), the Quartier des Invalides, which is mostly administrative and residential. The Eiffel Tower, L’Hôtel national des Invalides, the Musée d’Orsay, the French National Assembly, and Hôtel Matignon (the residence of the Prime Minister) are all located in this quarter on the south bank of the Seine. On the other side of Pont Alexandre III is the Champs-Élysées quarter.
