Opposite the wooden Alma Gate on the other side, it is itself entirely metallic, glittering, shining in the sunlight and the night-time enchantment.
The footbridges that link the gardens of the Quai d'Orsay, where the Palais du Métal stands, and the beautiful pink buildings of the Pavillon du Tourisme are also metallic.
High golden figures, a Pegasus with spread wings decorate them.
The footbridge facing Avenue Bosquet and Avenue Rapp stands like a bold and majestic prow. It looks like a battleship, splitting the ocean of the crowd.
