If the Eiffel Tower wanted to cross the River Seine to reach Trocadéro, it would take the Pont d’Iéna bridge. 155 metres long and 35 metres wide, Pont d’Iéna is one of Paris’ 37 bridges that cross the River Seine. Located at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, it will be part of an area dedicated to the Games in 2024, including the neighbouring Trocadéro live site.
In 2024, Pont d’Iéna will offer an exceptional viewing platform and experience for spectators and television audiences for the triathlon, para triathlon, road cycling, athletics (marathon and 20km race walk) and swimming (10km marathon swimming) events.
Built between 1808 and 1814 by the engineer Lamandé, Pont d’Iéna is made up of five arches spanning 28 metres, in a circular arc, and four intermediary pillars. It connects Quai Branly, the Champ de Mars and the Eiffel Tower on the left bank to the Trocadéro gardens on the right bank.
During the Games, Pont d’Iéna will be fully fitted out with overlay facilities making it possible to welcome spectators under the best conditions, while offering a unique experience for the athletes.
