crossing over the bridge can take you to the other side of Bordeaux. if you don't want to visit the other side, then walk till the middle of the bridge! it is still memorable to appreciate the Garonne river.

Commissioned by Napoleon. Typical stone bridge with arches illuminated at night in an attractive way offering great views over the city and connecting rives gauche et droite.

For something a little different, take a walk across the Bridge to Les Bastides neighbourhood of Bordeaux. Great location to take pictures of the left bank of Bordeaux. Venture further into the Jardin Botanique for some quiet time. If you feel energetic enough, a path will take you all the way to Pont Jaques and all the way back into... More

While this bridge is romantic and charming from the banks of the river it is an active bridge for transport. In comparison to the Charles Bridge in Prague this bridge which is very similar, could be so much more. Since it is in the center of the tourist areas you will most likely pass it more than once.

You do not have to go out of your way to see the Pont de Pierre as you can see it en route from the Grosse Cloche to the Port Cailhau. It is also very close to the Tram interchange, Porte de Bourgogne, between Line A and Line C. The bridge itself is OK but nothing special, however I can... More

Looking at this bridge in magazines or pictures doesn't do it justice. it is an example of architectural excellence that was made to last. you can go on a walk on this bridge and have the moist delightful view of Bordeaux. The weather was perfect when was there and i walked from my rented apartment which was in Rue Mautrec... More

A great walk secially on a sunny day . The construction of the bridge is also something to marvel. We were staying near the railway station and the walk was a long one but it enabled us to take in the flavors and the scenery of the place .

It makes for a lovely walk after dinner - we went on foot one way up to where the lion is, and then took a tram back to our hotel which was near St Katherine's street. Makes for some really nice pictures in night time, and the old style street lamps on the bridge take you into a different century!
