The Pont_d’Iena over the river Seine was ordered by Napoleon in 1807, and named after his victory at the Battle of Jena.Β  This is the bridge which sits at the base of the Eiffel Tower; the stairs off the bridge are also famous for featuring in a James Bond film, when Roger Moore drove a Renault 11 taxi down them while chasing an assassin.
