Palais Garnier

The Palais Garnier is a 1,979-seat opera house, which was built from 1861 to 1875 for the Paris Opera. It was originally called the Salle des Capucines because of its location on the Boulevard des Capucines in the 9th arrondissement, but soon became known as the Palais Garnier in recognition of its opulence and its architect, Charles Garnier. The theatre is also often referred to as the Opéra Garnier, and historically was known as the Opéra de Paris or simply the Opéra, as it was the primary home of the Paris Opera and its associated Paris Opera Ballet until 1989, when the Opéra Bastille opened at the Place de la Bastille.

Pont Alexandre III (Paris)

The Pont Alexandre III, widely considered as the most ornate and extravagant bridge in "the City of Love", is a deck arch bridge over the River Seine, connecting the Champs-Élysées quarter and the Invalides and Eiffel Tower quarter. The Pont Alexandre III in Beaux-Arts style bridge is also a French Monument historique, which features Art Nouveau lamps, cherubs, nymphs and winged horses.
